Welcome to Helvellyn Class - 2023 - 2024
Helvellyn is taught by Mrs Ward on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Johnson on Thursdays and Fridays.
Within Helvellyn, the children are set homework, in their yellow homework books, every Friday. The children also have access to independent work they can complete using Doodle Learning, Times Table Rock Stars and Purple Mash.
Times Table Rock Stars is a brilliant way for your child to practise their times tables, to increase the accuracy and the speed of recall.
The children are tested on their spellings every Wednesday. The spellings will focus on a different spelling rule each week, that we have been learning in class and they will also have common exception words for Year 3 and 4 to learn. New spellings will be set on Fridays with the children's homework.
Please read with your child as much as possible, whether this is listening to them read their reading book or by sharing their weekly library book. All the children have a reading record to write down the books that they are reading both in school and at home.
Our timetabled PE sessions for this half term are Monday afternoon and Thursday mornings with sport coach Lucy. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school.
Forest School takes place on a Tuesday afternoon once every three weeks, please ensure that your child has a change of clothes, outdoor shoes such as wellies, waterproofs and warm layers to put on.
