WELCOME TO DRAGONS' CLASS
Dragons' Class notices:
Spellings - New spellings are given every Monday and stuck into your homework diary. Spelling tests take place on Friday mornings.
Homework - Homework tasks are set on Thursdays and should be handed in by the following Tuesday. These will not be set weekly.
Reading - Dragons should be reading at home at least 3 x a week. Homework diaries should be signed if you have read aloud to an adult or you have read independently. 3 signatures = a reading sticker towards a certificate.
Mathletics - Mathletics tasks are set weekly on a Monday and should be completed by Sunday. If children achieve over 1000 points in one week they will receive a certificate.
Timestables - Are vital for your developing your maths skills. Children are aware of which timestables they are working on and will be tested regularly so they can move up the timestables ladder in class. These should be practised often at home.
Dragons became Ancient Egyptians on the 21st March, Pharaoh Kelly set them a series of challenges. They all looked amazing in their outfits.
'It’s Dotty’s birthday and she’s just got a shiny new ipad. But there’s a problem. She’s not being too safe online. She’s posting personal information, chatting to strangers and making rude comments about school friends. When her behaviour results in her being pulled into the computer Dotty finds herself caught 'In the Net’. The clock is ticking and in order to get home she must go on a quest – a quest to find out how to be safer online. Along the way she’s helped by a whole host of strange characters.'
We learnt all about the things below:
Safe Internet/Social Media Use
Keeping personal information safe
The effects of cyber-bullying on others
What to do if you are being cyber-bullied
What to do when you get that 'Oh Oh' feeling online
What to do if you have questions or concerns
Welcome to the Dragons
Years 3 and 4
Creative Curriculum theme ‘SUPERHUMANS'
The Dragons will be working on a human topic this term. This will include learning all about how the human body works as well as learning about superhumans of the past from Ancient Greece. We will also be having a Greek WOW day this term.
Mr Yiend will be teaching Dragons Class on Mondays and Tuesdays and will be teaching PE in the afternoons on these days, so please ensure your child has their PE kit in school. Mrs Roberts will be teaching Dragons Class on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Spellings for the week will be introduced on Mondays and there will be a quiz on Fridays, so please continue to help your child to learn these at home.
Homework day is Thursday and it should be handed in by the following Tuesday. Don’t forget to make use of Homework Club on Monday lunch times with Miss Fox if you need any help.
We are all focussing on developing and improving our reading skills. To become ‘Superstar Readers’ the children need 3 signatures in their Reading Record book each week to show that they have read to an adult. We will celebrate those with the most Superstar stickers at the end of each half-term.
‘Mathletics’ is a great way to practise a range of maths skills at home. Dragons Class are focusing on times table skills too, so this may be a fun way to make progress in this area.
We are all looking forward to an exciting and creative term of learning and hope that you will be able to help your child to continue their learning at home.
