Welcome to Cedar Tree Class!


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 Monday and Wednesday. PE kit and trainers must be worn. Year 4's PE session on Mondays 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.
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.




R.E. Visit

In November, children in Years 3 and 4 visited the Jewish Heritage Centre in Leeds, as part of the curriculum for R.E. The children learned about the Jewish way of life including how kosher food is prepared, how festivals are celebrated and they also had a tour of the Synagogue where Jewish people worship.




Christmas Concerts

Beech, Cedar and Willow Tree classes have all enjoyed their Christmas production. They've all worked extremely hard and I'm sure you'll agree that they managed to produce a fantastic performance. Rufford Park certainly has talent!
