Dolphins (Year 3/4) Mrs Kirby
Dolphins – Year 3/4 - Mrs Kirby
A very warm welcome from myself, Mrs Kirby and the team in Dolphins Class. I am very much looking forward to a productive and enjoyable year with your children – it will be lovely to get to know all of the children and parents/carers (as well as getting to know those that I have already taught a bit more!)
We have a busy and exciting term ahead! This year, the children will be supported by myself and Mrs Sexton. There are lots of other adults within the Year3/4 Team who will be supporting the children in maths sets and for RWInc. Please do not hesitate to message me via ClassDojo or come and see me (once all the other children have been dismissed) if you have any concerns at all about your child’s progress or happiness at school.
We will be looking at a wide range of interesting topics, including: Scrumdiddlyumptious, Rocks, Relics and Rumbles, Through the Ages, Predator, Emperors and Empires and Heroes and Villians.
PE will be on Thursday. Please make sure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit and has removed their earrings before coming to school if they are unable to remove them by themselves.
Homework will be set on the first week of term and due in on the last Thursday of this term. The homework is a points based system where the children need to select from a range of activities to get 50 points per term. I would also like to encourage the children to use Times Table Rock Stars to enhance their times table knowledge. There is also Spelling Shed for the children to use to support their learning. Usernames and passwords will be stuck inside their reading records.
We would like the children to be reading at least four times a week at home. When your child has finished their book, they will be expected to complete a
quiz on our Accelerated Reader scheme at school. The results of these quizzes will be accessible to you through our Accelerated Reader Home Connect. Please let us know how you feel your child’s reading is progressing with any comments or concerns through their Reading Record.
Please see the links below to explore further information about our learning this year.
