Just a little note from Mrs Jenkins:
Please ensure that your child is using TTRS more regularly over the coming weeks.
It is vital that our children are becoming fluent and confident with their times tables, as it will help develop their maths skills and their knowledge.
Log-ins will be sent out again next week (WB: 26th September) but If you need your childs log-in again, please do not hesitate to speak to me.
The children will be having a multiplication check at the end of Year 4 in the summer term. For extra practice, please use this link to a mock multiplication check. You can choose between 3 different levels which will suit your child. Have fun!
In Maple we have all been superstar readers this year and have read many exciting books during our class reading time. Reading is very important and even though we are not in school, I would like you to continue your reading. Reading can offer us many different things. It can improve our knowledge, we can escape from reality or even embark on a new adventure.
Encourage your children to talk about their favourite books and authors at home. That way, they are able to talk about why they enjoy reading their books and how they feel reading them. It is a good conversation starter!
Parents, please let your child read to you but you can also read to them. Just 15 minutes each day will help strengthen their love of reading.
Books we have read in class...
We are currently reading:
"This book offers a child's perspective on the refugee crisis, highlighting the importance of friendship and kindness in a world that doesn't always make sense.
There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it.
He's eight years old (just like me), but he's very strange. He never talks and never smiles and doesn't like sweets - not even lemon sherbets, which are my favorite!
But the truth is, Ahmet really isn't very strange at all. He's a refugee who's run away from a War. A real one. With bombs and fires and bullies that hurt people. And the more I find out about him, the more I want to be his friend.
That's where my best friends Josie, Michael and Tom come in. Because you see, together we've come up with a plan."
During mental health week 2021, we researched the power of kind words. Below are a few examples of our favourites.
