Year 3/4 Newsletter
Scarborough Primary School
The children need to bring their take home folder in every day. This will contain their dairy, and any books they are reading and take home notes will be placed in here too. The children are encouraged to bring in a water bottle that they can place on the floor next to their desk and some crunch and sip to eat through the morning.
Class Behaviour System
- Reading every night. Children may choose Literacy Pro books from the library on a Monday or Friday and their progress will be tracked through this. After they have finished a book, they will need to complete an online test. We will then track their progress by looking at their scores.
- Spelling words
- Times Tables
Personality of the Week
This is a fun way for your child to share any information they would like to about themselves with their class members as well as develop self esteem and identity. Each week a child’s name will be drawn out of a bucket. This child will then need to go home and complete an information sheet about themselves, then bring in some photos of their family, pets or friend to complete a display about themselves which will remain up in the classroom for a few days before the next person is chosen to be Personality of the week. The rest of the class is involved in completing a sheet about the person and this is cumulated into a booklet and given to the child to keep as a keepsake.
This term Year 3’s we will be focussing on students using metric units for length, mass and capacity and telling time to the nearest minute.
This term Tear 4’s will be comparing areas of regular and irregular shaps using formal units and solve problems involving time durations.
Design and Technologies
This term the students will be focussing on the topic Earth and Space Sciences. We will be identifying what students know about soils, rocks and landscapes and how they change over time. We will discuss the different types of erosion and provide hands on experience of how erosion occurs and the impact it has on the environment we live in.
The focus areas to be addressed in Health in Year 3 and 4 include and incorporate such areas as the use of persistence and resilience as tools to respond positively to challenges and failures and the positive influence of respect, empathy and the valuing of differences in friendships.
