Mrs Lakin - Class Teacher
Mrs Hall – Learning Support Assistant
Welcome to our lovely small class of 24 children. We are a mixed class of Year 3 and Year 4 children who are all really excited about learning. We are enthusiastic, eager and ready to work together to make wonderful things happen this year! Team work most certainly makes the dream work!
Our topic this term is Rainforests. This theme will be incorporated not just through our Topic work, but also our English lessons too. We’re very lucky to have had a visit from Zoolab to kick start our topic – keep an eye on our website page for pictures of all the animals we get to hold very soon!
Class book: Glubbslyme by Jacqueline Wilson. We’re really enjoying it so far!
Mathematics.The children will be in different groups for Maths and taught by either Mrs Bailey/Mrs Kemble, Mrs Lakin, Mrs Street or Miss Walsh.
Science.Our topics for Science this term are ‘Plants’ up until half term and then ‘Living Things and Their Habitats’ until Christmas. Amongst other things we will be answering the question... Why are Rainforests important?
Wednesday afternoons. On a Wednesday afternoon up until October half term, the children will have French with Madame Allenby and Music with Mr Welsford. After half term, we will swap and have PE with Mr Brewin and PSHE with Mrs Halford. These lessons will continue to swap every half term to ensure consistency throughout all four Year 3/4 classes.
PE.In addition to our Wednesday afternoon PE, we will also have PE on a Thursday morning. It is essential that a full PE kit is in school all week as we may need to change our days around occasionally.
Home Learning. This remains a key part of our children’s education. Home Learning tasks (Maths plus one other) will be given out on every third Friday, where children will have two weeks to complete them. We ask that during the week where no official Home Learning task is set that children can really try and focus on learning their times tables. These are such a great tool for children in Maths once they have cracked them!
