Instructions for logging on to MyMaths
Mr Blair's Class
Welcome to Class 2AB's class page. We are an enthusiastic and hardworking group of Year 4 children who love to learn new things and improve on our current learning!
Our class teacher is Mr Blair and Mrs Dixon and Mrs Webb support us with our learning across the curriculum.
We are also really lucky to have Mrs Lauder for Spanish.
The school library is open for us on Wednesday mornings to change our reading books when we have finished our books. In our planners, we write a brief comment about what we have been reading, note down the page numbers we have read and ask an adult from home to sign the relevant part. Mr Blair will collect our reading diaries on a Tuesday morning to check they have been signed. The school expectation is for reading diaries to be signed at least 3 times a week. It is important to bring our school bags to school everyday to collect letters and other important information.
We are set maths homework on MyMaths every Monday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Monday to be marked. Mr Blair will also send our English homework out on a Wednesday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.
Spellings for each week are in our planners. Each week we should practise at home 4 times and there is space for this in our planners. However, if spellings are completed in another manner (iPads, notebooks etc.) our parents indicate how many times we have done this and we ask them to ensure that they sign the spelling page in our planner. Spelling tests will take place on a Friday.
We need to come to school in our PE kits on Monday and Wednesday. It is very important that all of our belongings are clearly named. If we are wearing earrings, we need to ensure that we are able to remove them for PE or ask our parents/carers to provide tape for them to be covered up to meet health and safety recommendations. If we have hair below our shoulders, it should be tied back for PE and our tights should be replaced with socks for PE lessons.
It is important that we bring a water bottle to school every day, filled with fresh water. In addition, we are allowed to bring a healthy snack for break time if we wish. These snacks should meet the agreed list: fruit, vegetables, cheese or yoghurt.

I hope that you all had a fantastic Easter break and are refreshed and ready for the exciting term ahead.
In English this term we will using 'Escape from Pompeii' as inspiration to create a narrative that demonstrates tension, a non-chronological report in the style of a pamphlet and a diary recount.
