Robins week beg. 10th July

Date: 6th Jul 2023 @ 5:42pm

Wow! What a week we have had with the pool on site! The children have loved their swimming lessons and have showed both courage and perseverance. Some of the children have already met the expectations for the end of Key Stage 2. Next week, we will regroup the children based on how they have done this week and we will let you know when they will have their next swim session. 

Please remember to read with your child for 10 - 15 mins daily and record in diary if possible. Also take a look at their reading target which is on a sticker in their diary, some children may have the same target for a few weeks to work on. This term we will be mainly focusing on vocabulary development. 

Spellings for next week will continue to include words from the Statutory Year 3/4 word list. These spellings are hard and often don't link to any of the patterns that we have already covered this year. Therefore we have been looking at different strategies to help us to learn them e.g. looking for smaller words within the word to remember, looking for double letters, drawing around the word, drawing images to help us remember how to spell tricky parts of the word etc.   

perhaps, popular, potatoes, promise, quarter, recent, regular, reign

Spelling quiz next week will be on Friday 14th July. 

In Maths we are currently working on Telling the Time to the nearest minute on an analogue clock and reading the time on a digital clock. Can they read the time to the nearest hour? half hour? quarter to? quarter past? in 5 minute intervals? in 1 minute intervals? What time do they get up at? What time do they leave for school? What time does the school day end? Asking lots of questions like these about the time throughout the day would be beneficial. 

 It would be useful to play these games at home and to discuss the time.


Remember to encourage your child to have a go at the spelling and multiplication games suggested below. 




Use this website below to revise x2, x5, x10, x3, x4 and to focus on learning x8. The children have a mixed times tables sheet for homework this week.


PE days for this half term will be Monday and Friday. All children will have a swim lesson on Tuesday 11th July. 

We will email to let you know if your child will require an extra session on Wednesday 12th/Thursday 13th July if they have not met the National Curriculum expectations for Swimming.
