Welcome to Cedar Tree Class!

INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

Year 3/4 Cedar is taught by Mr Douglass with support from Miss Roberts. Feel free to come and talk to us before or after school any day!

 
PE: Cedar Tree Class have their PE lessons every Wednesday and Friday. PE kit and trainers must be worn. Year 4's PE session on Wednesdays will be a swimming session at Holt Park Leisure Centre.
 
Reading: Reading record books are to be brought to school every day. Regular reading at home has a huge impact on learning. Not only does it improve decoding and basic comprehension skills, it also helps to feed into writing, spelling and speaking and listening. Children should be reading at least 3 times per week with an adult and discussing a range of texts.
Homework: Homework goes home every Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday. This is an expectation of all pupils in Cedar Tree Class. If there is a problem or your child doesn’t understand a task, please come and speak to us and we can explain in further detail.
Spelling: Spellings are sent home every Friday and are tested the following Thursday. Please spend a few minutes each day discussing and practising these.
Maths: 
Year 4 pupils need to recall their multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12 and use and apply these to different, real life 
 
Year 3 children are expected to know the multiplication and division facts for the 2,5,10,3, 4 and 8 times tables.
 
Please spend a few minutes each day practising with your child. We play lots of times tables games at school which the children enjoy. This helps them to consolidate their understanding and apply their knowledge when faced with trickier problems. Each pupil has a times tables target that they are working towards. Year 3 children are expected to know the multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. All children have a password for Mathletics and this can be used as a fun way of learning more maths on the computer.

Skipping Competition

In February, our children competed against 5 other local schools in the annual Leeds West skipping competition. There were some outstanding performances from our children, both individually and collectively. All the children took part in a skip-dance routine to 'Eye of the Tiger'. They re-created the boxing scene from the 'Rocky' movie which won us a silver certificate! There were some individual gold, silver and bronze awards as well. Congratulations to everyone in Year 4!

 

World Book Day 2019

Cedar Tree Class displayed a range of amazing costumes to celebrate World Book Day 2019. We all had a wonderful day, reading different fairy tales, retelling our favourite traditional stories and drawing pictures of popular characters. We will be using these stories to create a whole class book to display in our class library.

Christmas Concert

We hope you have all enjoyed our Christmas production this week. We’re sure you will agree that the children were amazing! All of the children worked incredibly hard to learn their lines and sing their hearts out. A big well done to everyone involved.

Danelaw Visit

This week our Year 3 and 4 children ruled the roost as Romans on their day trip to Danelaw, near York. They developed their marching skills to a high standard, were trained in weaponry and, on a calmer note, practised their roman numerals! It was an amazing learning experience and the children were a credit to school.
