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 will be sending new spellings home every Monday to be tested the following Monday.  See the 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' sheets in diaries to help learn our spellings.

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 Mondays.



Our Technology Day.

On Thursday 3rd October, we had a whole school technology day. In Seely Squirrels, we had a video message from Uul, who appeared to be a girl from the Stone Age.  She asked for our help to design and make some fashionable Stone Age outfits for a party.  Naturally, we agreed to help her and proceeded to make clothes out of thick wallpaper and string.  At the end of the day, we invited our parents in for a fashion show down the 'red carpet' to showcase our fantastic creations.  We are sure that Uul would've been impressed with our creations.  Wonder if we'll see her again...


In our class, we are learning to play the violin with Mrs Price every Thursday morning.  We've learnt some of the key strings and some basic songs already.  Please remember to bring your school violin in for Thursday mornings.
