Our Class Team
Mrs Sherlock and Mrs Millard share the role of class teacher. Mrs Sherlock works in class on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday whilst Mrs Millard takes the reigns every other Wednesday afternoon and all day on a Thursday and Friday. The teachers and children in our class are supported brilliantly by the wonderful Mrs Thornton and Miss McLaughlin.
In our class, children are expected to bring in their reading books every day and take them home every evening. There will be opportunities to read these books on a daily basis and children may be asked to read to an adult at various times of the week. When a child has finished their reading book, they need to return it to school and sign it back in. We ask that children complete 20 minutes of reading at home each day please.
Reading Plus, our exciting new online reading programme, also compliments the children's independent free-choice reading. It gives a personalised programme for children to work on their reading fluency, vocabulary and comprehension skills. We are very excited to use this both in school and for our reading homework each week. Children each have an individual login for Reading Plus.
Spellings will be a little bit different this year! They will be posted on the Year 3 and 4 section of the website each week for the children to access from home, where they can be practised before the test each Friday. Children have been given a green 'Home Spelling Book', to be kept at home, where they can write their spellings up and practise them each week. We will, of course, also be teaching and practising the different spelling rules each week in class, before the spelling test. We are very grateful for all extra support that you give with your child's spelling as a strong partnership between home and school definitely helps to get the best results!
We have P.E. on a Wednesday each week. Please could children come to school wearing a suitable outdoor P.E. kit. This includes leggings/jogging bottoms/shorts as well as your school P.E. T-shirt and a normal Snaith Primary School jumper or cardigan. Children may also come to school wearing trainers on this day.
We ask children to bring an alternative pair of shoes/trainers for each day in school as we will be spending more time on the grass at playtimes. We want to avoid the children sitting in class with wet feet! Please bring these in a small drawstring bag which can be kept on the back of each child's chair in class.
Doodle maths homework is set on Monday to be completed by the following Monday. We also ask that the children complete 2 sessions of reading plus per week. There will also be spellings to practise each week. Mrs Sherlock and Mrs Millard will be checking online to see that the homework has been completed. If anyone needs any extra help with the task, or with accessing the work online, we will provide time in school to make sure that everyone has a chance to complete their online work each week.
Times Tables Rock Stars and Doodle
All children have their own personal logins for Times Tables Rock Stars and Doodle. They are fantastic resources for the children to practise learning essential facts in a fun and exciting way online. Children will access TT Rock Stars and Doodle from school and as part of their homework, using their individual login details. These have been sent home for each child inside the 'Home Spelling Book'. Please d contact us if you have any questions about either Doodle or TT Rock Stars.
