Another week complete!
Well Class 4, that's another week complete. We are already moving very quickly through the weeks. This week has been spent building and remembering our new routines. Our focus has been on Literacy, Numeracy and Wellbeing, but this week we have also started reading 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' and beginning some Science work.
Well done to those of you who have been busy completing you Purple Mash homework task, i have really enjoyed receiving them and commenting on your work. I know lots of you have earned stickers for your work so far.
We have begun to get reading underway in class, have you told parents / guardians about your reading levels. Regards reading homework, this will be undertaken on Purple Mash for now as we are unable to send books home.
Spelling assessments are well underway and you should know your spelling levels soon to be able to work on at home.
Lots have been unwell this week, it'll be good to see you all back in school soon. Take care and rest up.
Hello Class 4!
Well, we have had a very busy first week back getting to know each other and working out our new routines. There have been lots of changes in school this year and you are all doing very well with them.
We have spent some time looking at spellings and handwriting this week and next week i am hoping to start sorting out reading books for everyone. You have all been busy reading your library books and i can see you've made some great progress over lockdown.
Remember our Wellbeing topic this half term is 'All About Me'. I'm really enjoying getting to know you all and finding out interesting facts about you.
1. Start time for Class 4 is 8.55am.
2. Outdoor games on Wednesday morning with Mrs Griffith --> Please wear joggers / leggings and trainers to school so you are ready to go straight out for PE. Earrings should be taken out (at home) or covered with plasters / tape for the lesson.
1. Log onto your hwb account to remind yourself of your username and password.
2. Log onto your Purple Mash account to remind yourself of your username and password. Have a look at your To do's as you have some maths and reading work set to do!
3. Practise your 3 and 4 times tables --> If you know them well, try getting someone to ask you the questions out of order, in a word problem, what else do you know? (EG: 3x5= 15 so i know 5x3=15 15/3=5 and 15/5=3)
Croeso nol i Class 4!
Wow, what a busy first 2 days back in school after a long time off. You all did very well getting to grips with all the new routines and changes around the school. I am very proud of the great start you have all made.
We successfully managed to complete our new Class Contract and decide on some very important rules and routines for our class. Da iawn chi.
We have made our 2 new pupils very welcome to our class, and have enjoyed getting to know them. Welcome to Ysgol Gynradd Creigiau.
Please remember that Class 4 start time is 8.55am and finish time is 3.25pm. I know lots of you arrive at differing start times and leave at differing finish times, depending on where your siblings are.
Please ensure that you remember to bring a coat with you each day, we will be outside even if it's wet. Remember to bring your lunch in a plastic bag that is labelled. Last week a few bags got muddled.
Hope you all have a good weekend, see you fresh and ready to go on Monday!
Welcome to Class 4 with Miss Cridland
We have a very busy and fun-filled year ahead with many exciting things to look forward to and I am very excited.
PE: Outdoor games will be on Wednesday and Indoor dance / gym will be on Friday.
PPA: Mrs Griffith on Wednesday morning.
Keep a check on your personal targets and remember to share them with others at home so they can help you too!
Reading and library books must be in class each day and taken home every night. Remember to get you Reading Record book signed weekly or when you finish you reading books to progress more quickly. You must keep track of all your reading by recording the pages that you have read each day. Try to challenge yourself to read a little more each day!
Please use your Username / Password cards to access Purple Mash and HWB based activities.
Our Autumn term topic is: The firework Maker's Daughter. You will be learning all about light, sound, magnets, force, friction and famous scientists.
The Spring term will be Terrible Tudors. We will be learning all about the life and times of Henry VIII, including his story in Wales.
Finally, the Summer term will bring us Cardiff Creations. We will focus on how Cardiff Bay became what it is today…It’s not always been there!
Year 4 is all about hard work and fun.
Always try your best.
Hello Class 4 (The new Class 4 of 2020 / 2021!)
Miss Cridland here. I will be your new teacher in September and I am very much looking forward to seeing you all and getting to know you properly when we return. Some of you may remember I did a little bit of work with you back in February when I was working with Mrs Westlake.
How are you all? I hope that you have enjoyed the first week of the summer holidays, time is flying past so quickly. I have been busy, out and about taking my dog on lots of walks, even in the rain! Have you got any pets? Where have you been in the first week?
I have started planning lots of lovely things for us to do in school in September, which i'm sure you will enjoy. I don't want to tell you too much about our new topic, as I want to keep it a surprise!
The classroom will look different to before the summer holidays when some of you were in for the 3 weeks with Mrs Mullet. I have taken some pictures of our classroom so you can see what it looks like and you may get some clues as to what our topic may involve!
Keep up with reading over the summer, go over your 3 and 4 times tables and have a go at writing with pen to ensure you are ready for September. I'm reading Harry Potter...again!
Keep checking the website, I may add more clues to our topic and other information before we return to school in September.
Miss Cridland (27/7/20)
