Teacher: Miss Back
TA staff: Miss Atkin and Mrs Fardoe
Key Timetable Notices:

Literacy this Half Term:
This half term, we will be working with a very fun book called Ask Dr K Fisher. It is a book I think the children will love. It is a series of agony aunt style letters from animals to Dr K Fisher such as the dung beetle who is disgusted by rolling dung and the giraffe who is embarrassed of his height. The book is great because it includes these humorous, informal letters and then is paired with the reply from the Dr which is formal and precise. We will write our own pages and make a class book.
Maths this Half Term:
Y3 – We will continue our work on fractions before moving onto time.
Y4 – We will start continue to work with decimals including rounding before moving onto money and time.
In Y3 and Y4, times table recall is extremely important so please do practise with your child at home using TTrockstars (log ins will be given to your child via letter in their bag). Doodle maths is a very beneficial online practise site which you child has a log in for. Please ensure your child accesses the site 2 or 3 times a week for 20 minutes – it will make a big difference!

Maths – Please encourage your child to access TTrockstars or Doodlemaths 3 times a week for 20 minutes. This regular practice will make a huge difference.
