Jupiter – Years 3 & 4

Welcome to Jupiter Class!

My name is Miss Molloy and I am your child’s class teacher. In our class, the children have Mrs Douglas supporting us with our work too.

Our first creative curriculum topic of the year is “Tomb Raiders”, all about Ancient Egypt. We will have some fantastic trips this term too…

We sing every day at 3pm, and we do music on a Friday at 9am. We also have recorder lessons each Thursday so will be able to play you some beautiful music by the end of the year.

In whole class reading we work each week with both the class teacher and the TA.

In Maths, we are becoming more and more independent and checking our own work. We are particularly focusing on our times tables knowledge this year, as it is so essential to all Maths learning. The Year 4s will take a statutory times tables check in June.

We are so proud of our neat presentation and beautiful joined handwriting in Jupiter Class and receive house points for using neat handwriting using the correct joins.

Now children are in the Juniors they will need to bring their own fruit for a playtime snack. I will remind them to take this to the playground.

A few helpful reminders:

We are doing two weeks of intensive swimming this term. Children must have a kit, hat and towel.

We all have PE on a Wednesday with Mr Jenkins and Tennis on a Monday. Children must have their PE kit including plimsolls, not trainers.

Children must read and have their reading record signed every night. If this isn’t completed more than twice in a week then your child will miss playtime to read.

Homework is due in on Wednesday. I will mark it and return it on Thursday. If homework isn’t completed then children will be expected to complete it at playtime.

Please collect your child from the classroom at the end of the day
