What are we reading in Cherry Class?


We will be enjoying two texts this half term as part of our ‘Pathways’ lessons. Pathways to Write will be 'Zaraffa Giraffa' by Dianne Hofmeyr . We are going to be learning about hpw to b uild an increasing range of sentence structures, use headings and sub-headings to aid presentation and learn how to use present and past tenses correctly and consistently. 

In Pathways to Read we will be reading 'Egyptian Cinderella' by Shirley Climbo. We will be continuing to retrieve information from the texts and continue to use dictionaries to define words. 



We will follow ‘Maths No Problem’ and continue to become super mathematicians, with a focus on fractions and angles. 


Year 3 and 4 will be learning all about animals including humans this half term. We will be looking at the digestive system and understanding the importance of teeth. 

The wider curriculum
This half term in History we will be looking at the ancient Egyptians and what they believe in. We will be understanding how our bodies change in Jigsaw (PSHE) and covering topic issue in British Values weekly. In outdoor PE we will be learning how to play rounders and indoor PE we will be learning how to dance like an Egyptian. In DT we will be looking at creating Egyptian collars. In RE we will be trying to answer the question ‘Why are the Guru's important to Sikh's?’. In computing we will be learning how to take great photographs! 


PE is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please come to school dressed in full PE kit on these days. 


At Westfield, we expect all children to complete five reading sessions a week. These should be recorded in each child’s individual reading diary. Pupils' diaries are checked every morning by an adult from Cherry Class. The children are split into different Read Write Inc. groups whilst in school and will have a different book focus for that week which can be accessed from home via Oxford Owl as well as sent home in their book bags each week. Their planners and books need to go home every night and come back into school every morning. We encourage all of our children to read five times per week. We also have a library where chidlren are encouraged to take home a library book that interests them, to share with an adult at home. this is a 'reading for pleasure' book.


Each Friday, we will complete a spelling test on the words taught that week.  Children will be taught these spellings during the week, with a focus on applying the rule that is being taught. Children are then expected to practise their spellings further at home using Spelling Shed, a new assignment will be posted on a Friday, along with a practise 'Look, Cover, Write' sheet. 

Online Learning Resources

Our children have access to a range of online resources to aid their learning. Here are the links to some useful websites that children can use whilst not in school, their usernames and passwords can be found in their School Planner.  All children are familiar with how to use these.
