Pupils will study a variety of different genres of writing ncluding non-chronological reports, instructions and stories. We will be working on practicing weekly spellings from the Year 3/4 National Curriculum lists. We will continue to reinforce and develop the use of good punctuation throughout all subjects.
The children will take home individual books, which are at their individual reading level. During their whole class reading lessons children will read a variety of texts. They will work at developing their ability to retrieve, summarise and infer information from the text as well as widening their vocabulary.
We follow Power Maths at St James. See the curriculum map for units covered.
In addition to this, we do rapid recall daily that focus on a different statement each week based on what the children need to be able to recall quickly. They are tested on these every Friday. We also complete TT Rockstars focusing weekly on different times table facts.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Please read with your child daily if you can, if not at least 3 times a week, and remember to sign their planner.
Please take time to help your child learn the spellings that are sent home weekly.
Please encourage your child to complete TT Rockstars daily in preparation for the national multiplication check, which they will complete in Year 4.
