Autumn Term 1

Welcome to class 4
 
Our class teacher is Miss Melley.
Other adults in our class are Mrs Faith and Mrs Stephenson. 
Autumn Learning
 
As we return to school, there are many opportunities to spend time together, supporting one another to make the transition from home back into school! Look through the curriculum document below to find out how we are going to address any gaps in learning as well as how we will move forwards into new learning experiences.
Spelling & Handwriting Homework
Spelling and handwriting homework is published on google classroom every Tuesday. The children should also practice the weekly spelling rule on Literacy Planet and on paper at home, ready for their spelling test on the following Monday. 
Maths Online Homework
 This will begin on Tuesday 3rd November. The children will access this through Google Classroom with immediate feedback given on all maths questions. 
The children should also practice their times tables on Times Table Rock stars.
Reading
The children have complete their 'Star Reading Assessment' in week one and now have reading books matched to their individual comprehension level. 
Please encourage your child to read everyday as we will be tracking their reading success in comprehension quizzes!
PE
On days that we have PE, children should wear their PE kit coming into school and stay in it all day. Our PE days are WEDNESDAY and THURSDAYPE kit is a plain white t-shirt, navy shorts and/or navy tracksuit bottoms/ jogging pants with either plimsolls or trainers. The children should wear their school jumper as normal. If you already have a St Joseph's tracksuit top,  that can be worn, but we cannot order any new ones at present.
Handwriting practice can be found on the link below.
