Welcome to St Teresa (Years 3 and 4-Mrs Desouza).
Important information and reminders
Children choose their reading books. Please help your child by listening to them read every day and having a conversation about the book to develop their comprehension. Children can ask the class teacher to change their book when they have finished reading it. We welcome parents'/carers' comments in the reading record book. We will try to listen to your child read at least once a week.
Homework will be given out on Fridays and is expected back on the following Wednesday. Homework is usually posted on the class page.
A list of words or a short paragraph will be assigned weekly for spelling practice. The children will be tested on Fridays.
P.E. kits should be brought in on Mondays and taken home on Fridays to be washed. P.E. is timetabled for Wednesday and Thursday.
Please label your child's uniform with their name and class to make it easier to trace misplaced uniform.
The children can bring in a healthy snack to eat at morning playtime. This could be either fruit or a cereal bar.
The children in Year 4 have guitar lessons this year. They will be issued with their own guitar to take home to practise. Please ensure that your child brings their guitar to school every Monday.
St Teresa’s first Class Assembly was on Wednesday 11th September 2019 at 9:05 a.m. Thank you to all parents and carers who attended. Children are always encouraged when family members are present in the audience.
In maths the children are learning multiplication of two and three digit numbers by a single digit number using arrays and the grid method. They are working on the multiplication tables in class and it is important that they also practise regularly at home . They will then learn division by chunking on a number line. After this, they will learn properties of 2D and 3D shapes before learning fractions of shapes and quantities. At the end of the term they will learn Roman Numerals.
In RE Year 3 will learn about the importance of Remembrance before learning about how Advent and Epiphany tell us what Christmas is. Year 4 will learn about The Beatitudes of Christ, before moving on to the meaning of ‘Peace’ at Christmas.
