Jellyfish (Year 3/4) 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Jellyfish Class
Term 5 already? I don't know about you, but I thought the last term whizzed by very quickly! Please find out class newsletter in the document section.
Year 4 begin their swimming lessons this term and I know that they're going to learn lots of important skills and have lots of fun.
Year 3 will be playing various team games on Thursday afternoons with year 5, so lots of learning and fun to be had there too!
Can you believe we're now half way through this academic year?
Term 4 will be another busy term with World Book Day and Comic Relief 2019 - keep an eye on our class page for photographs from both events. We will also be celebrating Easter this term and the children will be thinking about the Stations of the Cross.
The Jellyfish will be writing newspaper reports this term based on the story of The Promise. They will then begin our new text - Varmints. Both of these stories link with our topic of The Natural World and focus on how precious our environment is and how we can look after it to save it for future generations.
Let's hope that Spring hurries up and arrives soon!
Happy New Year!
Please find our learning journey and newsletter for Term 3 in the section below.
We are looking at The Natural World in Term 3 and have lots of exciting things planned.
It feels as if I've only just welcomed you back from the summer holidays and now it's term 2 - time travels fast!
I have downloaded our Term 2 newsletter and learning journey to this class page and as you can see, it's another busy term.
Can I just say a huge 'thank you' for the support that you gave your children in completing their topic homework last term. The children produced their homework in a variety of ways and they were fantastic efforts! We even had a model of trenches with a place for real mud!
Homework will be given out weekly this term and will consist of speaking and listening tasks; maths activities; writing tasks and topic activities. Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be back in school by the following Friday morning at the latest. Please encourage your child to have a go at as many of the tasks as possible but try not to do their homework for them!
I am looking forwarding to meeting many of you on Tuesday or Thursday evening to talk about your child. If you haven't made an appointment to see me yet, please book one as soon as possible as time slots are filling up quickly.
Welcome back! I hope that you have all had a lovely summer.
Please check this page for Jellyfish news and to get us started, I have added our term 1 newsletter and learning journey to the Jellyfish documents section.
On Tuesday (2 October) the Year 3 Jellyfish will be attending a forest school day at Kearsney Gardens and it promises to be a great day, however, it could be chilly and/or wet, so please ensure that your Jellyfish has appropriate clothing for the day.
On Wednesday (3 October), 8 of the Jellyfish will be taking part in a year 3/4 football tournament at Dover College and a letter will be coming home with those children on Monday - please sign the permission slip and send it back to school on Tuesday.
On Thursday (4 October) it is our Harvest Festival service with songs, poems, readings and prayers to celebrate 'God's Gift to the World'. It starts at 2pm and we hope that you can join us.
