We are the fabulous Badgers class!
Our teacher is Mrs Castro and our higher level teaching assistant is Miss Daniels.
Mrs Castro's planning, preparation and assessment time (PPA) is on Thursday afternoons. During this time Badgers will be taught by Mrs Slater for games and Miss Daniels for Spanish.
We are very excited to start our new topic, 'Tomb Raiders' in September where we will be learning about Egypt and Egyptian life! We have planned many interesting learning opportunities from our Tree House Theatre visit to creating Egyptian masks and mummifying our very own oranges!
Our games lesson will take place on Thursday afternoons. Please make sure you have suitable school shorts, t-shirt and trainers. As the weather becomes cooler please ensure you have a warm tracksuit.
PE will be on Tuesday afternoons and we will need shorts and a school P.E. t-shirt. It is important that we have the correct, named kit in school at all times.
We would like to promote the love of reading so please encourage an adult to hear you read or ask an adult to read to you! We will continue to regularly check reading books and help you to change them when necessary. Please ask your adult to use the reading records to comment on your reading and for any feedback about your books, reading habits etc.! We do collect the reading diaries in daily to keep a check on your reading. Remember when you have read at least foures in a week and it has been signed by your adult you will be awarded a 'Super Reader' badge via Marvellous Me!
We will be learning to spell the words on the 3 and 4 spellings list and will regularly quiz you to see how many you can spell. Travelling to and from school is always a good time for oral practise!
Try and practise telling the time. Any time spent looking at analogue and digital clocks will be time well spent!
Bobby Badger Out And About
Bobby Badger, our class badger will be having an adventure every weekend when he is taken home by one of our class members. Bobby Badger has his own diary where you can write about the adventures you have had with him during the weekend. The children have been asked to look after Bobby really well! Please remember to write a few sentences about where you have been with Bobby Badger with a drawing of you and Bobby.
If you want to share any positive thoughts about your child's learning and progress then please do! Write it in their reading records and we will endeavour to reply as soon as possible. The same goes for any difficulties that your child may be experiencing. Don't leave it, let us know as we all want the very best for your child.
Look on our Year 3 and 4 page to find some cool websites that we will be using in school and you can use for practise at home.
