In Busy Bees Class during the Autumn Term we are embarking on our ‘We are Explorers’ project and will be looking at the provocation:

‘I think at that moment we did not even want to break the seal, for a feeling of intrusion had descended heavily upon us…. we felt that we were in the presence of the dead King and must do him reverence’ Howard Carter

Should Howard Carter, a famous archaeologist, have excavated this tomb?

This will be an exciting project using our geography and history skills to learn about the location of Egypt and the River Nile; and to learn about Ancient Egyptian past. This project shall also make links with the Mini-Science project about the Water Cycle and Changes of states.

In Year 3 and 4, your child will either be reading a Coloured Reading Scheme book or will have been moved on to Free Choice Reading book by the Classteacher. It is important that as well as listening to your child read, you also ask questions about the content of what they are reading and the language that the author is using. If your child is reading a coloured reading scheme book, these will be sent home regularly to support the teaching of reading in school; please help your child to be a successful reader by practising reading on a daily basis when possible. If your child is reading a free choice book, they may choose to take one home from school or read one that they already have at home. All children will have a reading chart. Please remember to issue a sticker or signature each time they read at home and remember that there are prizes for every reading chart completed throughout the year.

On a Thursday afternoon, Miss Brown will teaching the PSHE curriculum, give the children an opportunity to practise and recall Multiplication and Division facts (using TTRockstars) and provide an opportunity for a moment of mindfulness or Cosmic Yoga at the end of the day.

On a Friday, Mrs Butler will be teaching the class. She will be teaching Handwriting; Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling; Whole Class Guided Reading and Religious Education.

On a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, the children will have PE lessons. This term they will be outside due to the hall being occupied. On these days, please allow your child to come into school dressed in their sports clothes.

Please remember to send your child in to school with a coat, water bottle and hand sanitiser (optional) each day.

As part of our school policy, children are encouraged to ‘Enjoy Learning Together at Home’ and learning opportunity grids can be found below. These include a list of suggested ways that you may choose to support your child at home. Also, please find links to useful resources for you to use at home if you wish to further your child’s enjoyment of learning at home.
