Welcome to the Seely Squirrels Class...
where we are nuts about learning!
The Seely Squirrels is a Year 3/4 class.
Our teachers are Mrs Cotton-Winfield and Mrs Ince.
We are really trying to improve our times tables skills in school and are currently doing work on them every day. The children should know their multiplication and division facts up 12x12 at the end of year 4. For further practise at home, please click here http://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/5-7-years/multiplication-and-division and for fun maths games!
Please continue to read as much as possible at home - we recommend at least 3 times a week! This really supports a child for the future and not only helps them to read but improves their writing too! We are really focusing on understanding a text for e.g. What the story is about, why it ended a certain way, what other ways it could have ended. These elements are just as important as being able to read the words. Please see Mrs Cotton-Winfield or Mrs Ince for further advice or questions.
We give homework out of Wednesdays to be completed and handed in the following Wednesday. Homework may be maths, English, science or topic related.
We will be sending new spellings home every Wednesday to be tested the following Wednesday. See the spelling lists in diaries for this week's words.
Please also see the Year 3 and Year 4 spelling list T2-E-1175-New-Curriculum-Spelling-List-Years-3-And-4-Word-Mat.pdf
Our weekly 'Spelling Test' is on Wednesday.
Our PE slots are Thursday afternoon and Friday mornings, where we go swimming at the local pool. There may be times when we need our PE kits outside of this, so please can they remain in school all week. Don't forget your swimming kit for Friday mornings!
Our trip to Cadbury World...
During our Spring term, we learnt all about chocolate and really enjoyed sharing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The very best part was when we went to Cadbury World in March. See our day in pictures above!
This summer term will be spent learning about the Romans. Over the weeks we will be researching about the Colosseum and writing a persuasive leaflet to entice tourists to visit.
See full coverage of what we will be learning on our topic map.
