Year 3/4 - Harlequins

This week- week ending 21/10/2020


Microsoft Teams - Home Learning

The children have been allocated a home learning activity through Microsoft Teams for this weekend. You should have received a log-in for Microsoft Teams by the end of today (Friday 16th October). Please check that your log-in is working and support your child to complete the activity. Once completed, the activity should be submitted through Microsoft Teams, by Monday, for the teacher to see. This will enable us to test the Microsoft Teams system that will support our remote learning offer in the event of children having to self-isolate, closure of bubbles or a wider lockdown.


We have reached the end of our first half term. What a wonderful few weeks we have had!

We have enjoyed welcoming new class members to our school and have settled so well as a newly formed mixed class. 

The children have worked tirelessly and have amazed me in every way possible. Their attitude to learning really is something to be admired and as a result, they have produced some fantastic work. 


I have so enjoyed being their teacher this half term.


Please enjoy a well deserved rest. I am looking forward to seeing you all again after half term.


Take care,


Miss Lewis

Home Learning

Home learning will be set every Friday and should be completed by the following Wednesday.


Reading - Books have been changed and should be read at home at least 3 times in the week. Please sign the reading record to show how often the children have read. These need to be handed in on a Wednesday and will be sent out again on a Friday. We understand that the children do find some of the books less challenging than others, however, the books sent home with the children are intended to increase fluency and understanding. Books to challenge the children can be accessed from the library or online. Please get in contact if you do not have access to further reading material and I will be more than happy to help. 



The spelling grid for this half term is attached in the section below. Please practise these at home (no need to bring anything in to show your teacher). We will then test the spellings on a Thursday. Please learn the spellings that correspond to your year group (yr 3 or yr 4). 


Times Tables - Children should log on to Times Table Rockstars and practice their times tables by playing the games at least three times each week. Tables have been set for the children and will vary as the children progress. We will be having Times Table Rockstars sessions in class, so please make sure the children are practising at home. 

If you need confirmation of your login, please send me a message via the contact your teacher function at the bottom of this page. 


Purple Mash - Please log on to Purple Mash and complete the 2do. Everyone should now have a login. 

If you need confirmation of your login, please send me a message via the contact your teacher function at the bottom of this page. 


Our class' outdoor PE day is a Friday - children should come to school on a Friday in their PE kit. This half term we will be doing netball and will be outside as much as the weather allows, so children should be dressed warmly enough, including wearing tracksuit bottoms and a sweatshirt. Gloves and a hat are permitted in the winter if needed.
