Jupiter – Years 3 & 4


Welcome to Jupiter class!

My name is Mrs Porter and I am your child’s teacher for this year. We also have Mrs Hanifan, Ms Coad and Mrs Stapleton supporting us with our learning.

We’ve had a fantastic start to the year so far, and we are very excited to continue working with Jupiter class as the year continues.

This term, we have been learning about Europe in their Topic lessons. The children will be learning all about the continent: countries, geographical features and various cultures.

In English we have started the year with some work on recounts, and will be moving on to looking at descriptions.

The children have been working so hard on their times tables this year and have made a lot of progress. We will continue with our Times Tables Olympics challenge every Wednesday. In maths lessons, we will be continuing our learning on multiplication and division, before moving on to some work on fractions.

In Science, we have been learning about states of matter. The children will have the opportunity to explore solids, liquids and gases through a number of investigations and experiments.

In RE we will be learning about our local parish and the communities and groups that serve in our local area.

Jupiter class will be having PE sessions with the Arsenal coaches on Thursdays this term. We look forward to learning lots of new skills with them!

A few helpful reminders:

  • Children will have PE on a Thursday until the end of term. They must bring in a PE kit which can be kept in their lockers.
  • Homework will be set on a Thursday via Google Classroom and Mathletics. Children should complete this in their homework book and hand it in by the following Wednesday.
  • 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 a playtime to read with an adult in school.
  • Children must bring their own water bottles.

If you would like to speak to me with any concerns or questions regarding your child, please email the office and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
