Yr 3 & 4 – Miss Bearder – Ladybower
Year 3/4 Autumn Term 2 2018
Reading – Please encourage your child to read at home at least four times a week. This should be recorded in their reading diary.
Class Read – During the year, we will be sharing a ‘class read’ – a quality book which every child will have access to and which we will read together. The children may be asked to read a chapter or two as homework.
Maths – In the Autumn term, we will be concentrating on:
Weeks 1 – 5 Place value
Weeks 6 – 11 Addition and subtraction
Weeks 12 – 14 Multiplication and division
Week 15 Consolidation
Times tables – Times tables will be tested on a weekly basis. Children will individually work through times tables in the following order:
x2 , x5 , x10 , x3, x4 , x8 , x6 , x7 , x9 , x11 , x12
Once your child is secure with the times table they are learning, along with the corresponding division facts, they will move on to the next times table.
A website to help your child with their times tables is https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
Homework – Grammar Hammer, Maths Skills Check and a selection of the Year 3/4 statutory spellings will be given out on the Monday of each week.
Homework will be due the following Monday.
Reading Diary – Reading diaries must be in school every Monday. They will be used to record spellings and other homework tasks.
Thank you for your continued support.
Miss Pratt, Mr Biggs and Miss Bearder
