Welcome to St Margaret’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). In terms of daily exercise, Joe Wicks will be providing free workouts on youtube every morning at 9am.

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: jleggett@stjosephspudsey.org

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

St Margaret's

Welcome to the St Margaret's Class page!

Keep checking this class page to see all of the fun things we have been getting up to in school. 

Teaching Team
Mr Leggett will be the class teacher throughout the week with Mrs Young assisting. Mrs Lamb will be covering the class on Friday afternoons.

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

Swimming 
St Maragaret's will be taking a break from swimming during the Spring term. We will continue swimming during the Summer term after Easter.


Curriculum
All learning intentions, topics and areas that we are covering this half term are within the curriculum newsletter which will be updated every half term.

Homework
Each child will receive weekly:

A maths toolkit- which needs to be completed by Wednesday ready for a timestables test.
Spelling list- which needs to be completed by Friday ready for a spelling test.

Reading 
Children will also receive 2 reading books per week on a Wednesday which will need to be returned ready to be changed every Wednesday. Please may pupils bring these books into school each day as they may have chance to read to an adult. 
In addition to this, we will have an author of the term where each pupil will have chance a novel by a certain author. In St Margaret's our author for this term is Roald Dahl. Pupil's will then use their growing knowledge complete tasks about their novel to do with characters, settings and description for the class. This gives the child a chance to read a lengthy piece of writing and also gives a chance for you to share in the reading with them in an evening.

Timestables
Each week the children will be taking part in a timestables test on certain numbers that they have looked at that week, this is in preparation for an external examination that the Year 4s will take part in the summer term. All pupil's are welcomed and encouraged to use timestables rockstars to practice at home and at school. Usernames and passwords will be provided to the children so they can access this website. 



Mr Leggett & Mrs Young
Year 3/4 Statutory Spellings

These are the Year 3 and 4 statutory spellings that the children are recommended to know by the end of Year 4.

Science and Maths Week

During Science and Maths, we were investigating the strength of different materials when designing a bridge. The children were given cardboard, string and sellotape to make their bridges, then they were giving one of card, wood, cardboard, polystyrene, plastic and sponge. We then placed weights on top of the bridges to see how much they could hold!

World Book Day

St Margaret's had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day, with all the class dressing up as a range of characters from different books!

Yorkshire Museum

As part of our topic 'Roaming Romans' we travelled over to Yorkshire Museum to take part in a Roman Day. This involved looking around the Roman exhibit, A day in the life of Roman workshop and A Roman Legionnaire Workshop!

Hero Day

We dressed as people who we are inspired by for the day and created posters to celebrate why they are an inspiration!
