Welcome to Bindon Class (Year 3 and 4). Mrs Williams will be in class Monday to Thursday as class teacher and Mrs Rimmer will be in class every Friday.
Your child will have P.E. lessons on Monday and Wednesday every week. Please can the children arrive at school wearing their PE kit on these days. Please remember that long hair needs to be tied up and ear-rings removed or taped.
Water and snacks
We would ask that you provide your child with a named water bottle, this way pupils have access to water all day. Please include a healthy snack in your child’s lunch box if they need something to keep them going until lunch. If you would like your child to have milk please contact the office for the appropriate forms.
The children will be following the ‘Big Spellings’ scheme and throughout the year they will be assessed to determine which word list they will be given. The word lists will be stuck into their homework diaries each Thursday to take home to learn. Every morning at school they will complete different activities using these words and then tested on a Thursday.
Now the children are in KS2 they will be responsible for changing their own reading book from the correct colour code. They will all take part in guided reading sessions each week and be heard individually by an adult as frequently as possible. Reading at home aloud to an adult is very important for developing their fluency, vocabulary and comprehension skills. Every Friday, the children will earn a sticker on their smiley chart if an adult signs to confirm they have read at home at least 3 times the previous week. Once their chart is full, they will choose a prize from the box.
Please encourage your children to practice their times tables at least 3 times each week. Every child has their own log-on for Times Tables Rockstars. Please contact me if you are having trouble accessing this resource at home.
