Welcome to Eagle Class
This page is intended to give you an overview of the routines in Year 3 and 4, together with useful information. We will also post photographs and examples of work throughout the year. We hope that you will find it useful.
Class Teacher: Mr White
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Williams and Mrs Hall (Fridays covering Mr White)
PE: Mr Pigden
This term we are learning all about the Romans in a topic called 'Battles and Conflicts'. Our history will be centred around the Roman Empire - how they lived, wars they fought, the place they came from and clever inventions they made.
Our PE day has changed for this year to two days: Wednesday and Thursday. However please make sure your child has their PE kits in everyday in case of timetable changes. Could all clothing also be clearly named to avoid anything getting lost.
Swimming is on Thursdays (same time as alternative PE) from 11 until 11.30am. This will take place for 10 weeks during the Autumn term from September to November. Children will need swimming costume, goggles and towel.
Reading - Children are expected to read at least three times a week, with Reading Records being collected every Monday for checking.
Mental arithmetic - It is also vital that Mental Maths strategies, including learning their times tables, are rehearsed regularly.
Spellings - these are to be practised each week and tested on a Friday. To help your child's spelling development, please practise with them daily - 5 minutes should be enough - using the given spelling sheets which will be taken home on a Monday.
September 2018 - Simple Pulleys
This term we are learning all about machines that make our lives easier such as the simple pulley. Using a tree, a rope and a 4kg weight, the children learned how we can lift things into places that wouldn't normally be possible. They were asked how the Romans might have used this technology, and their answer was to make roofs for their homes. A great idea!
