Welcome to cEDAr CLASS
Key Days to Remember!
Spellings: Monday (Year 4's only)
Reading Journals: Hand in Thursday
Homework: Given out every Friday to be handed in on Thursday
We are working really hard on our times tables this year. In year 3, we need to know our 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 and 5o timetables. In year 4, we are trying hard to learn them all right up to 12x12 by the end of the year so any practice that we can get is really helpful!
We regularly use a fun website called Mathletics to consolidate our understanding in maths. You can also use this at home! Just click on the link below and enter your username and password:
Here are some of the other brilliant websites we use in school to help us consolidate our learning:
At break we will be providing a variety of healthy snacks for children to buy. Please bring in the money for toast for the week on Monday. Juice and fruit can be bought on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Hot school dinners are provided daily at the cost of £2.30 per day.
This year, we will continue with our Pride Points system to reward children for good behaviour or outstanding work! At the end of each week, the points are counted up and the 2 children with the most points win a prize from Mr Mepham! Pupils throughout the school have been put into of 4 houses - Stars, Sun, Moon and Earth - and the points each child earns will also count towards their house total at the end of each term!
School closure updates
We hope you are keeping safe and well at home.
We sent home a list of great websites and links to support home learning up until Easter.
We have now attached a ‘Year 3_4 home learning’ document below to start after Easter. There are lots of educational ideas and fun ideas to have a go. Please don’t feel that you need to do everything but your child will benefit from regular sessions of school work every day.
We have really enjoyed working with your child since the beginning of this term and all the class were working hard and showing a great attitude to their learning.
Look after yourselves. Remember have fun, make time to play and relax

Keeping a reading journal
We love reading in Year 3/4. Please help us to read at home and remind us to write in our reading journals at least 3 times, completing one activity.
You can see an example below:
As you can see, they've written the name of the book at the top. The first entry is an activity they've completed from the front page of their reading journal. The second and third comments are simply responding to a section of the book they have read. 'I liked the... because...'
This shouldn't take too long and is simply to ensure that children are reading. These are to be returned weekly on a Tuesday.
Topic- The Romans
This term we are learning all about the Romans! We had a fantastic time at Caerleon on our school trip. Have a look at the pictures below to see what we got up to.
