Welcome to Otter Class! We are a fantastic mixed Year 3 and 4 class. Miss Bliss is our teacher and we are very lucky to be joined by Mrs Eaton throughout the week.
Beautiful artwork created by children in Otter Class as part of our whole school theme, 'Trees'.
This term (Spring 2), as well as continuing with White Rose Maths and Literacy Curriculum (book based English units), we have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned. For example, in our geography topic, ‘Rivers’, children will learn about the world’s rivers, how rivers shape the land and why rivers are important. In DT, children will be learning about, and making, money containers. Our science topic is ‘Animals including Humans’ and children will learn about teeth and digestion! In our RE topic we will be learning about Christianity, reading some stories and exploring how Christians worship and celebrate. Children will also learn about other religions and the similarities with Christianity.
Spellings will be sent out via ClassDojo every half term and spelling tests will take place every Friday. Children can access spelling activities on the Spelling Shed website. In addition, you can also find the spelling lists here:
Reading Diaries have been provided to help children and parents to keep track of, and celebrate, reading. In order for us to celebrate reading in school please ensure that Reading Diaries are in school every day. There will be prizes at the end of the year!
All children should use DoodleMaths at home as frequently as possible. In addition, assignments will be set every week. Please contact Miss Bliss if your child does not have their login details. Mrs Beck hands out prizes every week for the top Doodlers!
