Yew Class Page

Welcome to Yew Class! We are a friendly group of 31 hard-working, Year 3 and 4 pupils. Our Class Teacher is Mrs Jensen and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Routledge, Miss Allington and Mrs Asquith.

This term's theme is Ancient Egypt. Image result for cartoon images of ancient egypt

We have started our theme off with a flight from Caistor Primary Airlines, the school hall, to Ancient Egypt. We are looking forward to exploring the wonders of this ancient world and producing some fantastic work to show case what we have discovered.

We are using ClassDojo this year.

ClassDojo is a reward system for pupils and an easy way for teachers to stay in touch with parents and carers. Throughout the term we will use ClassDojo to post class stories about our learning journey to share with you all.

English and Theme Work

This term our project will be a 'pop up Egyptian museum', situated in our classroom for the other Key Stage 2 classes to access. All of our learning and research will be based around producing informative museum guides, suitable for publication. To present our guides clearly for our museum visitors, we will be using lots of different features of non-fiction writing to organise our guides so they are presented clearly for our museum visitors. The guide will incorporate all of our art, geography, computing and history learning over the term. As developing Year 3 and 4 writers, we will also work hard to improve our editing and proofreading skills to produce an excellent, informative guide full of Year 3/4 grammar features.

Maths

We will be working hard this term to secure our number and place value knowledge. We will be developing our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills with four digit numbers and using different apparatus to do this.

P.E.

This term our P.E. topics are tennis (outdoor) and dance (indoor). Please make sure children have their full P.E. kits in school every day, as PE sessions are occasionally subject to change. Every Wednesday afternoon, our Year 3 pupils will be attending swimming lessons. 

Homework

It is expected that children read at home at least three times a week and complete a 'Reading Mission' every week to encourage reading for pleasure. 'Reading Missions' will be checked every Friday in school.

Children are also be expected to strengthen their weekly maths skills on IXL to consolidate their learning in class.

Every term, children will be set a topic based project to encourage them to engage more deeply in the new topic and inspire them to learn more outside of the classroom.
