Year 2 - Mr Linaker and Miss Dixon
What we have been learning Useful Information and Letters Useful Links

In Year 2, our theme 'Pirates' will continue.  Many of our lessons will have a pirate or explorers theme.

In science the children will be finding out about materials and plants.

 

SATS for children in Year 2

Last half-term, Year 2 children completed their End of Key Stage One Assessments.  Reading and maths tests took place during the week beginning Monday 15th May.  Our final Teacher Assessments will be sent home with your child's report later this term.

 

Homework

All children will continue to bring home a school reading book and their Reading Record book. As a minimum, we expect all children to read and have their book signed at least 3 times each week.  We aim to recognise those pupils who read more than this and reward their efforts.

Please help your child by ensuring they complete their reading homework and return reading record books to school each day. We may ask children to complete some reading at break/lunchtimes if it is not completed at home.

These are the 'Common Exception Words' that Year 2 are expected to know before the end of the year. We gave them to all parents that attended our Parents' Meeting in February. They will be tested on them later this term to see how they are getting on.

Please try to practise spelling them at home.

Year 3 - Mrs Adamson, Mrs Savery and Mrs Williams
What we have been learning Useful Information and Letters Useful Links

Our topic for last half term was 'Big Bad Beasts!' Our main focus was learning about Ancient Greece in history, starting with a timeline of main events. We explored the Ancient Greeks in a variety of ways to engage the children and to help them to understand something of their way of life and beliefs.

 

In English we used multimedia to learn about some Ancient Greek myths, particularly the ones which have mighty mythical creatures in them! We also read Krindlekrax by Philip Ridley, the tale of a giant crocodile who lives in the sewers underneath a normal street.


Homework

All children will continue to bring home a school reading book and their Reading Record book. As a minimum, we expect all children to read and have their book signed at least 3 times each week.  We aim to recognise those pupils who read more than this and reward their efforts.

We will set weekly homework tasks for children to complete in their Homework Books. Tasks will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Tasks will be in the front of books and could include, English, maths, science or topic activities. The tasks have been chosen to appeal to the different learning styles children may have and they can choose which ones to complete.

Additional spelling homework will be sent home with tasks to be completed in spelling books.

Please help your child by ensuring they complete tasks to a satisfactory standard and return them on time. We may ask children to complete some tasks at break/lunchtimes if they are not completed at home. School offers a lunchtime homework club for children in Years 3 and 4.

Year 4 - Mrs Allen and Miss Webster
What we have been learning about Useful Information and Letters Useful Links

Last half-term the children in Year 4 were focusing their 'Big Bad Beasts' topic around the history of Widnes, looking at a different aspect each week.

 

In science we looked at animals, including humans and made connections with our topic.

 

In English we studied books which linked with our topic, 'Varjak Paw' and 'How to Train a Dragon'.

 

Homework

All children will continue to bring home a school reading book and their Reading Record book. As a minimum, we expect all children to read and have their book signed at least 3 times each week.  We aim to recognise those pupils who read more than this and reward their efforts.
