Year 3/4 EC & JLB Learning Log
Wednesday 17th January
Your homework this week is to complete a worksheet answering questions about your times tables. Please bring your homework back to school by next Tuesday in order for appropriate feedback to be given.
Every Wednesday is now even more wonderful. Our class will be visited by an ’Author’. She will be telling the children stories about the ’Rainforest’.
We have purchased special hard back art books for the children to record all of their sketches and story ideas in. This project is going to see the children writing and telling stories more often. Please encourage your children to tell, research and write their stories at home.
As our topic is ’Rainforests’, we will also be comparing our own environment around the school. Therefore please can your child bring wellies to school each Wednesday, as we will be carrying out research in our Forest School area. But for next week, please can we have them in on Friday 19th January.
We have been so impressed with the children’s enthusiasm already.
We will be sharing our stories with you later in the term.
If you have an questions about this project, please feel free to come in and see us.
