Welcome to Year 3/4
In Opal class we take pride in being a well mannered class who accept and celebrate our differences.
Your child will be given a reading book and diary to take home and read. Please ensure that they are in your child’s book bag every day. It is really important that your child reads as much as possible. We ask that your child reads for 15 minutes each night. Your child will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy books throughout the week in school.
Currently, our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please send your child into school wearing their P.E. kit on these days. During the Winter, children should have both tracksuit bottoms and shorts as we could be outside come rain or snow! Girls should bring tracksuit bottoms too as they are not to wear tights underneath shorts.
Our playtime is now at 10:30-10:50. We will be using the playground, field and climbing equipment so please ensure that your children have a change of shoes ready for playtime.
Our homework is set on a Friday and is due back the following Friday. The children are expected to read for 15 minutes each night and complete an Accelerated Reader quiz each week. They are also given Times Table Rock Stars (TTRS) homework to complete throughout the week in short consistent bursts.
Spellings will be handed out each week on a Friday to be tested on the following Friday. If a large portion of the class struggle, the spellings may be extended to allow more time to practice.
At Sound, we always welcome volunteers to come and read with the children, work alongside the class or even volunteer for clubs or special activities. If this is of interest to you, don’t hesitate to speak to the office or the class teacher and they will point you in the right direction.
