In Busy Bees Class during the Spring Term we are embarking on our ‘We are Scientists’ project and at the start we will be discussing the video and story book ‘ There’s a Rang-Tan in my bedroom’ as part of our provocation.

Our environment is one of the most important things in our lives. The definition of an environment is, “the surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal, or plant lives or operates”. Our environment is responsible for plants, animals, food chains, the water and much more, which is why it is very important that we look after it. If we don’t look after it today, who will look after it tomorrow? This project will focus on teaching the children about the importance of looking after the animals within our environment; to ensure that over time they do not become extinct.

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, Mrs Mitchell will teaching the PSHE and ICT curriculum to our class.

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 Monday and Wednesday afternoon, the children will have PE lessons.  On these days, please allow your child to come into school dressed in their sports clothes and bring a spare pair of shoes incase they are outside on the field. 

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.
