Welcome to the Cuttlefish Class page!

We are a Year 3 & 4 class.

 

Please find below the learning activities for this week. If you and your child need to self-isolate due to COVID-19, your child will still be able to access the same learning as the children take part in at school. If you have any questions, please contact me through ClassDojo. You can upload the work your child has completed in their ClassDojo portfolio. If you need login details for ClassDojo, please contact the school office. 
Best wishes,
Miss Turton
 
 

Year 3 and 4 Target Tracker Statements

When looking at the Year 3 & 4 objective posters, if you focus on the 'I can...' statements, this is what your child should be able to do by the end of the year in Year 3 & 4 when following the National Curriculum.

Learning Activities School Term 2
 

Our topic this term is 'Burps, Bottoms and Bile', a science topic with a focus on the human body and the digestive system in particular, healthy living and where our food comes from. For more information, please see our termly newsletter (published shortly).  
We will be developing our reading skills this term using Demon Dentist by David Walliams. We are also using this book for our writing inspiration: writing a diary.
