Year 3 and 4 Writing Task - Week 2

School Closure

Welcome to St Andrew’s online learning updates!

Firstly, thank you for your patience and understanding whilst staff organise work for children to complete during school closure. This class page will provide all the resources you will need to enable your child to continue to develop their learning.

As a school we will be providing: one Maths, one English, one SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) or Phonics every day for the children to complete. We would also like children to have the opportunity to complete an RE (religious education) and Topic (geography, history or science) once a week (where possible).

Children have been provided with resource packs, which include: a workbook, a pencil and a rubber as necessities. You may use these resources to support the learning or use your own equipment, if you wish.

As teachers are still providing education online, all teaching staff will be available to contact via email between the hours of 8.30am and 4pm. Staff will be more than happy to respond to any questions or concerns. The class teachers email is: G.Mate@stjosephspudsey.org

We thank you for your continued support in this unprecedented times. 

Please look on the White Rose Maths Home Learning Website which provides videos and extra worksheets for Year 3 and Year 4. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

UPDATE: 24.3.20: On the school wesbsite, if you follow 'Our Learning' and then 'A Guide for Parents on the Curriculum', you will find a range of links to support home learning for reading, spelling and phonics!
Along with the maths work, please find attached an answer sheet to check through the work that is done at home.

St Andrew's Class Page

Welcome to the St. Andrews' Class page!  This page provides a glance at the learning journey your children will be on.

Teaching Team:

Miss Mate will be teaching on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons.  Mr Farmer will teach on Wednesday mornings, Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Lamb will be in class every morning during the week.

PE:

In P.E this term we will be taking part in net and wall games. We ask if pupils can bring outdoor footwear with them as we will be making sure we go outside whenever is possible. Children will need to come to school in their uniform and bring their PE kit to to change into. Pupils' will be able to change into their school tracksuit as well if we do go outside, but please remember shorts and t-shirts.

The children in St Andrews' are continuing their swimming sessions on Friday afternoons. The children can arrive to school in their school tracksuit for swimming. 

Curriculum:
All curriculum details are in the half-termly newsletter on this page.

Homework:
Weekly each child will receive:
Maths Toolkit - to be handed in on Monday.
Spelling List - a test will be given on Wednesdays.

Reading: 
The children will be provided 2 books weekly, which need to be handed in on Monday.  Please can they bring their reading books daily as they may be reading to an adult.

In addition, this term our Class Author is Roald Dahl.  Children will be given a term to read his books where upon they will then use their knowledge to write book reviews.  This provides an opportunity for children to read a lengthy piece of fiction and for you to share the joy of reading with the children.

Times Tables:
This year the children in Year 4 will sit an external test on their tables knowledge.  To help with their learning we are having a weekly tables test in class for all children.  The school has provided Times Tables Rockstars to explore their tables in a fun and enjoyable way.  Usernames and passwords will be provided to the children to access this resource both at school and at home.
