Mundford Church of England Primary Academy

Cedar Class

Welcome to Cedar class!

Our topic this term (which we will be doing lots of exciting work around) is:

Creation

The class discussed what Creation meant during the transition period back in July, and here are some of the fantastic questions they came up with:

  • How are feelings created?
  • When did the moon and sun get created?
  • Who created clock time?
  • How was money created?
  • How were countries created?
  • Is something created in your imagination still a creation?
  • Are colours a creation?

We aim to answer these questions, and more, throughout the term!

Mundford Junction Dates

Come and spend some time with your child in class to find out what they have been learning about!

Timetable

We have a busy term ahead of us, but try to keep our timetable the same each week where possible.

Each morning, the children begin the school day with some quick writing activities during registration. The rest of the morning consists of Maths, Arithmetic, and English lessons; these take us up to lunchtime. After lunch, foundation subjects are taught to the children; these are different each day.

Important information:

Tuesday

Year 4 children go swimming on a Tuesday afternoon, so please make sure that they have their swimming kit with them.

Year 3 children will be having a normal P.E. lesson during this time, so please make sure that they have suitable clothing for an indoor or outdoor lesson (weather dependent).

Please ensure that earrings are removed for P.E.

Wednesday

P.E. will also take place on a Wednesday; the Year 3 and Year 4 children will take part in the lesson together on the school site. Please ensure that earrings are removed for P.E.

Thursday

Topic homework is due back.

Friday

Spellings will be tested on a Friday, and new spellings and topic homework will also be issued. 

In addition to the issued homework, there is an expectation that the children will all be reading for at least 20 minutes every day. This can be recorded in their yellow reading log.

There is also an expectation that the children will be independently practicing their times tables at home. The recommended times tables to focus on this term are as follows:

Year 3 – Three and four times tables.  

Year 4 – Three, four and six times tables.
