Jupiter – Years 3 & 4
Welcome to Jupiter class!
My name is Mrs Porter and I will be your child’s class teacher this year. We will also have Mrs Hanifan, Ms Coad and Mrs Stapleton supporting us with our learning. We’re all looking forward to a great year ahead.
We’ve got some exciting topics lined up for this year. Our first topic will be ‘Wonder Women’, looking at influential and inspiring women throughout history. In English, we will be looking at ‘The Wild Girl’. We will start the term by writing an adventure narrative based on the text, before looking at other writing styles such as persuasive and poetry.
Our focus in Maths this half term will be place value, which will help the children become more confident with using numbers. We will also do lots of work on times tables this year.
The children will have a daily reading lesson at school and will take home their text to read at home on Fridays. They’ll be set texts on Bug club on a Thursday to read and can choose books from the school library the rest of the week.
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.
Homework will be updated once a week on Thursday via Google Classrooms. Children must complete their homework in a workbook and submit their work by Tuesday the following week.
We will be having PE once a week with a sports coach. Jupiter Class have PE on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their full PE kit with them in school each week.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns regarding your child over the next term, either by phoning or emailing the office.
Thank you for your ongoing support!
