Welcome to the St Margaret's Class page!
We are really looking forward to learning lots of new and exciting things in Year 3/4!
Keep checking this class page to see all of the fun things we have been getting up to in school.
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. for this half term will be on Tuesday mornings which will be led by a Leeds Rhinos coach starting from the 10th September. The children may arrive in school in their P.E. tracksuit ready for the lesson. The children do not need to bring their school uniform in on a Tuesday this half term.
It is St Margaret's turn to swim for the first autumn term which will start from the 10th September which will also be on a Tuesday morning. Please may pupils be sent with shorts, swimsuits, towel and goggles in a seperate bag. Children will walk to Pudsey Leisure Centre to start their swimming lesson and then will be walked back to school ready for lunch. Please bring coats and appropriate school shoes ready for the walk.
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.
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.
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.
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.
