Welcome Back to our 2022-23 Academic Year!
Our first Autumn topics are:
Brainwaves & How Humans Work
This overview shows you everything we will be learning across the first half term. See below for information on maths, home learning and spellings.
As in previous years, we will be using the White Rose Maths Mastery approach to teaching maths. In the first half of autumn term, we will help children to recall their prior maths learning with a focus on addition and then subtraction. Children will learn different methods for adding and subtracting with 2 and 3 digit numbers and apply these to problem solving and reasoning questions. Content for this unit is very similar for year 3 and year 4 and children will be encouraged to secure their skills before they move on to using larger numbers and solving more complex problems.
At St Edmundsbury, we use TT Rock Stars to practice times tables and this can be accessed at home with your username and password. Tables will be tested each week to see how you are all getting on and to help you to keep making progress with these. Children have been provided with their log-in details to bring home. Please let us know if you are having any problems accessing the site.
For more information on how maths in taught in primary schools, parents can access a number of guidance videos using the following link:
- Try to read as much as you can (a little each day is best). You can read anything you like! Just remember to record it in your Homework Diary. You have been given log-in details for 'My-On' which is an online reading site where you can access hundreds of different books and quizzes to go with them.
- If children finish their reading book, they can log in to Accelerated Reader and search for the book they have read. There will be a short quiz for them to complete to show they have understood the text, before they are given a new book in school. Quizzes will be completed in school if you aren't able to access them online or if children finish their book during the school day.
- Work on TT Rock Stars online or on the App to practise your tables.
- Practise your spellings as much as possible. These will be put on your class website page each week. Please let your teacher know if you need a paper copy to take home.
See the class timetable above for PE days and Forest School sessions. The timetable will be updated to show any changes so keep checking back regularly.
REMEMBER: You can come to school in your PE kit on your PE days. Please make sure you are wearing the correct school PE kit.
