Welcome to Class 3/4O!
Welcome to Class 3/4O. My name is Mrs O'Hare and I will be working with the Year 3 and 4 children this year. I will be supported by Miss Crilly throughout the year. Year 3 is a big step for the children as they move from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 and this year the children are encouraged to gain independence by organising themselves and taking responsibility for their own learning.

This will be sent home on a regular basis and is intended to consolidate learning that has happened in the classroom.
The various activities include Spellings and Mental Maths.
You can also help your child by listening to them read for 15 minutes, 3 times a week which will not only not only expand your child’s vocabulary and ‘ideas bank’ for story writing, but also help them with their spelling!
Your child will also need your help learning their multiplication tables in preparation for the Times Table Challenge in class on a Friday afternoon. Useful strategies include: chanting in order, writing them out in 2 minutes, responding quickly to questions out of order. The Times Table Rockstars website can be used to consolidate this.
PE will take place on Wednesday, and swimming at Accrington Academy is on Tuesday afternoons. It is important that the children have a full PE kit in school with all items of the kit clearly labelled in order to prevent it from getting lost. If your child has an ear piercing this will need to be removed by the child before the lesson, or at home on the morning of PE/Swimming lessons.
I hope your child quickly settles into life in the juniors! Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to come and have a chat after school or make an appointment at the office.
