Welcome to Fox Class!
Thank you all for the warm welcome to Cheriton. Below there are copies of the timetable, the presentation from the 'Meet the Teacher' evening, the Topic overview and the Maths overviews for Years 3 and 4.
Currently we are attending Forest School all day on Tuesdays, although we will be returning to school for Lunch.
If you have any questions/concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Welcome to Fox class from Mrs Phillips and Mrs Johnson
Hope you all had a lovely break and managed to relax. Last term the children seemed to thoroughly enjoy the Volcano and mountain topic and learnt a lot about the rocks and soils, states of matter and the watercycle. With the added extra of making our own volcanoes erupt! I hope this term will be just as exciting!
This term we will be starting with a secret topic called The Arrivals, this will get the children thinking about themselves and others and what they believe to be right and wrong. Hopefully they will see the links with The Abominables book we have been studying and the books we are about to read. We will be finishing off states of matter in Science, as well as looking at plants and animals including humans, nutrition/food and habitats. This will link nicely with our Save the planet topic, where we will look at endangered species and will have a visitor to talk about whales and dolphins.
In RE we will be looking at Raksha Bandhan which is all about protection.
With the Hampshire music service we will be learning to play the clarinet.
Just a few things you will need to know
Please read with your children 4 x a week, so that they can earn a dojo. If your child is not reading at home this will hinder their progress.
PE is on a Friday - please make sure children have tracksuits as well as shorts and trainers/ plimsols THAT FIT ( we will be going outside if its dry).
Cooking will start on Friday mornings.
Homework and spellings will go out on Fridays.
Spellings will be on Friday and homework needs to be in on Wednesdays, If homework is not completed for 2 weeks they will be expected to lose a break to complete it.
Children are awarded house points for homework unless they have done above and beyond in which case dojo's will be given.
There is also a Mymaths club on a Thursday after school for those who would like to come.
Class 3 have been investigating solids, liquids and gases
Luke "Liquids will take the shape of the container they
are in. We have been learning about the state of matter."
Daniel "Jago has got some soap that has viscosity
which means that the soap is thick and pours slowly."
Amellie "Everyone looked really carefully at the objects
with magnifying glasses and we also learnt a new word viscosity."
Hebe "Looking at the sugar through the magnifying glass
we could see mini crystals."
Luke "Sugar is a solid which can be poured and will take the
shape of the container when you shake it."
