Welcome to our class page. We look forward to sharing all our learning and hard work with you throughout the year. Make sure you check the SeeSaw app to see what we are up to on a day to day basis.
Meet the Teacher
Our Class Governor is Mr. J. Gallagher
If your child is required to shield or isolate, a remote home learning plan will be sent home via Seesaw, as promptly as possible.
MONDAY and THURSDAY
Home Reading Books: Your child will have access to online reading books and we will issue school reading books after the children have settled into school. More information to follow.
Visit the Pearson's Active Learn website where you can access our Bug Club. Here we have allocated your child a selection of reading books for the book band they are currently on. Once they have logged in, if they click ‘My Stuff’ they will see the books that have been allocated to them. The log ins for this website will be sent via SeeSaw. Please listen to your child read as you normally would. Choose at least two books to read per week.
This September, we will be launching Seesaw again. This is an excellent way to communicate with your child's class teacher. Look out for the QR code in your child's school bag.
Remember to use your home journal codes to start creating your journals on Seesaw. The teachers can see what you are posting and share activities and announcements.
Maths Year 3 and 4 Tuesday
Today I would like you to practise your column addition and subtraction. To generate your sums you can use a dice and roll 4 numbers to make a 4-digit number, however when you are doing subtraction make sure you put your largest number on the top line. If you don't have a dice or you want higher numbers in your sums then you can write the number 0-9 on pieces of paper and pull them out of a hat, again choose 4 numbers to make a 4-digit number. If you would like to do higher digit numbers you can. You can ask a grown up or use a calculator to check your answers. Try and do 20 sums of each.
Remember with column addition if the number is 10 or more we need to carry the 1 over on the bottom line and add 1 to the next column.
Remember with column subtraction if the number on the top line is less than the number underneath we need to borrow one from our neighbour.
If you are unsure please message me on seesaw.
If you require more maths you can practise you times tables or number bonds to 10, 20 or 100.
Watch the video below, chat with your grown up about whether this has ever happened before or what you would do if it did. Once the video has finished press the ok icon. You will then have a blank page to make a poster about inappropriate content and what to do. There are some question tips on the left hand side to help. Add words and pictures. Save your work in your folder by clicking the red arrow and save and exit.
Below are a range of activities for your child to use, it is not intended for you to do every single activity but choose the ones you feel your child would enjoy. Some need the sheets printing, others can be done on paper (feel free to use your child's homework book), others can just be carried out.
There are videos for each section and these can be accessed on the Children in Need Website. Feel free to watch them before doing to work.
You can also (if you have the time and means) spend the day doing something good together and having chats about how the children feel during these strange times. This could include board games, baking, watching a movie or doing crafts, anything that makes you feel good!
This week the children can access 'All About Explorers' https://www.allaboutexplorers.com/ This website has been created to show children that you cannot believe everything you read on the internet. It shows fictional information an=bout real explorers. The children need to read the facts and use the internet to find out which facts are true and which are not true. In class we will be using the page on Christopher Columbus https://allaboutexplorers.com/explorers/columbus/
Explain that it is important that they use reputable sources online e.g. National Geographical, biography.com or BBC. They could use 2Publish Plus on Purple Mash and select a blank web page (this may have been set up in your child's 2dos), they can produce their own spoof web page about a person they know (famous or family member). This can be sent to their class display board or saved in their folder.
