Hello parents, carers and children,
We just wanted to write you a little note about home learning.
From what we have seen so far you are all completing lots of work and trying really hard at home.
WELL DONE to all of you for your amazing efforts so far!
We know this is an unusual time for everyone, the most important thing is to keep you and your family happy and healthy.
Whilst we obviously encourage you to work at home, we do realise this will be easier for some people than others.
Try your best to do what you can but also use this time to spend quality time together too.
We will be posting new resources on the website each day for you to access. These resources are not a must do they are being added to help support you and your families at home.
Some of the resources will be our core subjects Maths, English and Reading whilst others will be tasks or challenges you can enjoy as a family.
To all the 3/4R children, we are missing you.
We are really proud of how hard you are all working at home. :-)
The most important message we want to send is -
You are doing an amazing job. Keep each other safe and enjoy this precious time together.
Remember if you need us do not hesitate to email us. :-)
Our best wishes,
Miss Rushton, Mrs Spencer, Miss Rawcliffe, Mrs Rawson and Miss Fort.
P.S. Keep scrolling through our page to find lots of resources.
A big hello from Miss Rushton and Mrs Spencer, we will be the teachers in 3/4R this year.
In our classroom we are fortunate enough have help from our amazing teaching assistant, Miss Rawcliffe. The fantastic Mrs Hanslip will also be teaching in our classroom on Wednesday afternoons.
This will be a busy year filled with an abundance of engaging lessons and activities. All the staff in 3/4R are ready for the wonderful year ahead and we are excited to meet you all on our first day back.
- On Wednesdays, we will have our P.E lesson. Your child will require a full P.E kit including: black pumps, a white t-shirt and black shorts which are all clearly labelled with their name.
- Homework and spellings will be set every Friday to be returned the following Thursday.
- Children Work hard to learn your spellings and times tables at home to achieve some superb scores on your tests!
- Your child will bring home a reading book each night along with their reading record.
- Please encourage your child to read as much as possible at home as the impact on their school work and progress is significant.
- Children Each section of the website will have interactive games and ideas linked with our topic for you to try at home.
- Parents Take a look at the bottom of this page to see what we will be learning throughout the year. (Curriculum Clouds)

Friday's Maths Challenge:
2.4.2020 Here is tomorrow's maths challenge, I will be doing this in school tomorrow, you should have a go at home too. :-)
Parents: This is Who Wants to be a Millionaire PowerPoint, it's probably best being adult led. One slide shows the question and the next slide shows the answer. If you run it as a slide show that would work best. The slides change on a mouse click. :-)
Children: You will need a pen and paper for your working out. Why not make it a family challenge and see who can score the most points? :-) Can you beat your parents?
