Welcome to Year 3/4 White Base
Mrs Knutsen, Mrs Fairfax, Mrs Lamb and Mrs Wolstenholme welcome you to White Base!
This is our class page, where you will find all the useful information that you will need during your time in our class.
Our day starts at 8.40am when our door will be open for children to come in until 8:50am. Our day ends at 3:10pm.
We love reading books from our year 3/4 reading spine. Regular reading at home really does help your children to become fluent confident readers. Therefore, we ask that they read at home at least 5 times in a week. This could be, for example, a school book, comic, magazine or recipe. We know that finding the time can be tricky but reading regularly at home really does make a difference. Please write in your child’s reading record once you have read with them. We kindly ask that your child brings their reading book and reading record in a book bag every day. They will change their book and share their reading records every Monday with Mrs Knutsen. We will be reading The Diary of a Killer Cat by Anne Fine for our first class novel.
We learn a new spelling rule each week which is on the termly homework sheet. You can support your child by playing spelling games and practising writing the spellings - maybe in your fanciest rainbow pens! In addition to this, they will also need to practise key words from the Year 3/4 Spelling List.
Regular times-table practise is really beneficial for your child as they progress in year 3 and 4. They complete a National Multiplication Test at the end of Year 4. TTRockstars and Sumdog is a good place to start: your child will have their own log in.
Outdoor PE is on Tuesday with Mrs Wolstenholme and indoor PE is on Friday with Mrs Fairfax.
On these days, children need to come to school in their PE kit which is trainers, black shorts/bottoms, a white t-shirt and black zip up jacket. Please make sure your child can remove their own earrings or remove these prior to PE on these days.
We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead full of interesting and engaging learning. A new topic is introduced each half term. Your child will receive a Knowledge Organiser of important facts alongside a selection of topic related activities they can complete for homework. During half term four, our topic is 'Anglo-Saxon Art & Culture'.
If there is any information that you can't find on our class page, please get in touch with the school office by email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
