Welcome to Elephant Class
Year 3 and 4
Who works in our Team?
Our class teacher is Miss Wynn and our Assistant Teacher is Mrs Ruddle.
What happens when?
We have PE on Monday and Thursday. Children bring their PE kits on Monday and leave them in school for the remainder of the week.
We have a wide range of lessons during the week. Each day we always have Maths, Reading and Writing. Additionally, we have weekly Science lessons, Music lessons with Mrs Oldfield and French with Mrs Ruddle.
Further to this, our Wider Curriculum afternoons cover the breadth of the foundation curriculum such as History, Geography, Design and Technology, Art, PSHE and Computing.
We practise our handwriting and basic maths skills each day.
We have lots of great things planned each week. We are really excited about the year ahead – please follow our learning adventures on the school’s Twitter account (@CamblesSchool).
Children take part in guided reading daily as a whole class session and may be part of a reading carousel. Due to these being recorded in their Guided Reading books, they are not written in their Reading Records.
Individual reading books can be changed by your child daily. If your child keeps forgetting to change their book, please let us know. Reading is part of your child’s homework and they have a challenge to read at home at least five times a week to gain extra playtime on a Friday. Please could you listen to your child read so that you can ask him/her questions and help them improve their understanding and fluency. We would be grateful if you could then write a note in their planner to say they have read to you.
Our weekly spellings are set on a Monday and the children are tested on these the Monday after. The list of spellings we are learning for the week will be in your child’s planner and sent to you via ParentHub as part of a Weekly Update.
*To read to an adult 5 times a week which is recorded in their reading records
*To practise spellings ready for a spelling test every Monday
If you have any queries about anything that is happening in class, a member of staff is always on the door in the morning. Hopefully we will be able to help you then or arrange a time when we can discuss any issues with you that will need longer time.
