Emeralds' Class

Spring 2018/19             Emeralds Class Year 3/4                      7th January 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back – I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and New Year with your families and friends. We are very lucky in Emeralds to have Miss Hendrickson working with us for the first 10 weeks of this term.

This half term the Emeralds will be exploring:

· English – effectively making changes to our own work, writing our own narratives, newspaper reports and poems. We will also be writing poems to perform to the rest of the class.

· Maths – multiplication and division, finding the perimeter and area of shapes, fractions and decimals.

· Science – states of matter and sound

· Geography – earthquakes and volcanoes around the world

· History – early Islamic civilization

· Computing – online safety, communication and animation

· PSHE – relationships and getting along, mutual respect and tolerance

· P.E. – dance and games

· Art – linked to topic and taught by Mrs Mackenzie

· French – colours, days and months


Things to remember:

  • School times – 8.45am – 3.15pm. The classroom door opens from 8:35.
  • Uniform – please make sure ALL items of clothing are named, including coats and hats. We have many children coming to school and leaving jumpers/cardigans, which aren’t named.
  • PE– Tuesday and Wednesday. Every Tuesday afternoon your child will be taking part in a dance session so will need an indoor kit. On Wednesday your child will be taking part in a games session so will need an outdoor kit. It is important that your child has both indoor and outdoor PE kits for these sessions. PE kits can be brought at the beginning of the half term and stay in school safely.  
  • Homework will be given out on a Friday and due in on the following Thursday - please support your child with this where possible. If you have any problems completing this, please let me know.
  • Weekly spellings will be given out on a Friday with homework to be practised at home ready for a test the following Friday. These spellings will be based around an age appropriate spelling rule.
  • Your child will have two instant recall target facts (SMIRFs) for maths and these are found at the back of their reading record. Please support your child to practise these at home ready to be tested in school. If you have any questions regarding the SMIRF targets, please do not hesitate to ask. If you don’t have your child’s targets, please let me know and I can get them for you.
  • Daily reading – your child will bring home a reading book each day, please sign in your child’s reading record and indicate pages read. It is your child’s responsibility to change their book and hand in their reading record daily. This year we are completing a reading challenge– each time your child reads at home AND hands in their reading record they will receive a stamp. When your child reaches 21 stamps they will receive a special prize!


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see me or get in touch, the door is always open! 

Thank you for your support.
