Year 3 & 4 - Exeter

Welcome to Exeter Class!
 

Year 3 & 4 

Our teacher is Mrs Stebbings and our higher level teaching assistant is Mrs Hays.  

When Mrs Stebbings is out of class, planning and preparing, our class is covered by Mr Dessena and Ms Whitley. 

Our topic for the spring term is South America and Mexico; you can access our topic web for more details below.
If you feel you have an area of interest or expertise based on this topic's work, please do contact us! We would love for you to share your talents with our class to support their learning this term. Otherwise, if you would like to come in to read, again please let us know as we would love to have you in. 

Our reading for pleasure class texts are 'The Prime Minister', which we will follow with 'The Explorer', and  our literacy reading text is 'The Great Kapok Tree'.  A selection of non-fiction, poetry and information texts will support and enhance our main texts.

 If you have any queries or concerns, no matter how big or small, please do come and speak to Mrs Stebbings.  Things are usually best discussed as early as possible so that we can work together to sort them out and ensure our children are happy learners.  Usually, the end of the school day is the best time, as mornings can be busy preparing for the day ahead.  If there is an urgent message, please contact the office.

Reminders

Please remember to bring a named water bottle, named PE kit and a reading book: these should be in school every day, though we are timetabled for PE each Wednesday and Friday.
 
Home Learning
Children are expected to do at least 10 minutes a day reading at home.  Pupils use Accelerated reader to ensure they are comprehending their reading selections.  In addition, pupils will have a Times Tables Rockstars login, so that they can practice their times tables facts at home and school.
 
Homework will be set on a Friday, to be collected in the following Wednesday. Children will have a maths activity each week, and a list of targeted spellings to learn each week. Spelling tests will be on a Friday, when they will get their new set of spellings to learn for the following Friday. Additional theme related tasks may also be sent home.  
 
If a child has a topic related interest or artifact they want to share with the class, then we would love to hear about it.
