Otters Class Y4
With Mrs Wilson, Mrs Grimwood, Mrs Bradley and Mrs Taylor
Hello and Welcome to Otters!
Welcome to term 2! We have a very busy term ahead of us, so we hope you are well rested and looking forward to this terms learning. We will do our upmost to provide you with updates as to what we are doing in class this term. Keep checking the page to see how busy our learning is. Coverage for term 2 is uploaded so please take a look to see what we will be focusing on.
Our PE days this term are Thursdays and Fridays! Please make sure that PE kits are in school on those days and that all items are clearly labelled. We will be spending a lot of our PE time outside, so it is really important that the children have trainers or plimsolls and possibly tracksuits for those colder days.
We will be focusing on weekly spellings and each terms spelling lists are uploaded on our spellings page. You will find out your spelling group in class, so you know which list to focus on. There will be a mixture of spelling patterns to learn and also learning the year 3/4 national curriculum spelling appendix. As we get used to our spellings, we will introduce a weekly spelling test. We will also complete a weekly mental arithmetic test in class.
It is really important that we work hard on learning our times tables up to 12 this year, so that will also be a weekly focus as part of a maths lesson but any extra practice you can do at home would be fantastic! Again, there is a section on our class page for times tables and here you can find some additional resources to help! We will continue with TT rockstars as a whole school approach!
If any queries, please pass them to us through the school office or email at the address below!
With best wishes, the Otter class team!
