Mothecombe Class (Years 3 & 4)
Welcome to Mothecombe class!
We have a mix of Year three and Year four children who love to learn and work alongside each other kindly and enthusiastically. We like to bring learning to life through various topics throughout the year which means that our learning is always placed within a meaningful context.
Our topics this year are:
Autumn Term 2021: Through the Ages (History) Animals including humans (Science)
Spring Term 2022: Rocks, Rumbles and Relics (Geography) Forces and magnets (Science)
Summer Term 2022: Emperors and Empires (History) Plants and Light (Science)
Other details about our class:
Forest Schools – this is taught every fortnight on a Monday afternoon. Please ensure children come to school already in their forest school clothes.
PE – Friday is our main PE day. Please ensure children come to school already dressed in PE kit.
Homework – homework is posted on our Showbie platform. A topic overview is given which engages children with a variety of home learning activities to choose from. Homework is celebrated in class – please send it in with your child when they have completed a task or upload it onto Showbie. MyMaths homework is also given each week and can be found uploaded on the MyMaths platform for which your child will have an individual login and password.
Spellings - these are issued every Thursday and accessed the following Thursday. Spellings are uploaded to Showbie and a paperwork copy is also sent home with a list of different practice ideas to support your child. Children will record their results in their reading diaries.
Reading- We promote a love for reading and encourage your child to read a variety of reading materials. Children can choose books within their ZPD level and once read, quiz on the renaissance reader platform in school. Every term the class takes a star reader assessment, based on a set of comprehension questions, this will then generate a new ZPD score.
I look forward to sharing your learning journey with you. Mrs Wilson ( Class teacher)
