Squirrels - Yr3/4
Welcome to the class page for the Squirrels!
We are a mixed Year 3 and Year 4 Class. Our teacher is called Miss Williams
This will be as practical as possible and linking to the work undertaken in class. Homework will be given out on Fridays and collected in on Wednesdays.
Parents can help with homework tasks, but please leave feedback in books to let us know of any particular difficulties or activities you enjoyed.
I have also included tackling tables sheets and spellings for each child should you wish to work on these as part of home learning. Finally, there is the prodigy online game for extra mathematics practice and quizzes (all parents welcome to log on with your child).
Please make sure homework is well presented and reflects your child’s full understanding. Home school communication books must be in school each day so records of reading can be written in.
