We are continuing with our topic “le Tour de France” during the next half-term.
We will taste some typical French foods and compare Leek with a town in western France, St Gilles Croix de Vie.
We are also looking at the art work of some famous French artists. Can you think of any
In PE we will be back outside to take part in various invasion games next half-term; netball and tag rugby, Hopefully the temperature will be a little higher!
Please ensure your child's PE kit is in school every Monday for the week ahead. A reminder that PE kit is a white t-shirt with school logo, royal blue PE shorts, Royal blue hoodie, black pumps and trainers for outside. Children can wear tracksuit bottoms for outside games until the weather improves.
On Monday 3rd April Year 4 are going on a school trip to Tatton Park with Year 5 for an Anglo-Saxon day. This will complete our learning of the Anglo-Saxons.
Further details of this visit will be shared after half-term but here is the link to the Tatton Park website for a sneaky peek of what we will enjoy http://www.tattonpark.org.uk/learn/school_visits/education_programme/anglo_saxon_and_viking.aspx
As always, if you have any questions or queries, I am always available after school to discuss with you.
Year 3 and Year 4 Curriculum and Expectations
With the new National Curriculum, the Department for Education has produced new expectations for the end of each curriculum year. These will replace the old system of levels and provide you as parents with a clear idea of what the children should be achieving at the end of the year.
Below you will find the expectations for Year 3 and Year 4 in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. We have also produced ‘deepening’ targets for parents to show you the targets that the children will be working towards if they have met all of the ‘expected’ targets to master their learning skills.
As a school we shall report your child’s progress against these end of year expectations at parent's evenings during the year.
The following terms will be used:
· Your child is not on track to meet the end of year national expectations.
· Your child is on track to meet the end of year national expectations .
· Your child is on track to exceed the end of year national expectations.
Any extra support you can provide in helping your child or children to achieve these will benefit them greatly.
