Academic Year 2022/2023

Spring Term 2023

Year/Blwyddn 3 and 4 – Mr Wright

This term we are using the concept of ‘Change’ to focus all of our learning, please see the blackboard below to find out what the children will be doing in school!

Autumn term seems to have flown by! The children have taken to Key stage 2 brilliantly, I am so proud of how quickly they have adapted to a differently style of learning and they seem to be thriving as a result. We covered two genres of writing (I hope you enjoyed their adventure stories, I thought they were fantastic!), completed a design project, deepened our understanding of number and place value, learned how to recount an event and debate in a team, all the while returning to where we belong – St Joseph’s in Neath in South Wales, looking at the history of the area and what life used to be like.

Class Prayer

Dear God,

Please help to keep all the animals safe and look after the nature in our wonderful world.

Thank you for my friends and new classroom.

Thank you for love, kindness and loyalty.

Reading books, spellings and homework

Each week I will be providing the children with a worksheet with their weekly spellings and times tables to practice. Please encourage your child to complete one line each day – little and often will be an effective way to help them to learn these vital skills!

The children will also be provided with a reading book and a yellow reading record book, please do your best to read this book with your child each week and sign the yellow record once the book is completed.

Activities will be sent home which link directly to what the children are learning in school and supports their work in class. Please make every effort to support them and to complete the tasks set.

Anything you are able to do at home to supplement their learning at school will make a positive impact, helping them to progress, I thank you for your support!
