Skylarks class is taught by Mrs Jenkins. We work hard but she makes learning fun by showing us easy ways to understand the subject. At the end of the week we have Funday Friday where we tell jokes. I enjoy playing the Round the World maths game and other games when we are good.
Welcome to Skylarks
Welcome to Skylarks' Class - we are a mixed year group class of Years 3 and 4. We are taught by Miss Bentley from Monday to Thursday, and by Mrs Jenkins on Fridays. We also have Mrs Duke, Mrs Lowey and Mrs Rollings to help us with our learning.
Moving from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2
If your child is moving from Year 2 to Year 3, please note that your child will no longer receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable at playtime. Alternatively, the school runs a tuck shop at playtime where they can purchase a healthy snack for 20p.
Lunchtime is a little later, running from 12:30-1.30pm. To contribute to our school values of teamwork and community, your child will take on additional roles on a rota basis during some lunchtimes, such as handing out and collecting toys to put away.
Your child will no longer have an afternoon break time, but we ensure the children have opportunities to be active in lessons and regularly go outside for the Golden Mile.
Reading : Your child will take home their school reading book each day. We ask that they spend time reading at home each day and record their reading within their Reading Record book. We ask that your child brings their reading book and Reading Record book to school each day. They can do tests on Accelerated Reader after finishing their books.
Spelling : A spelling list, appropriate for your child, will be provided on a Monday. The children will have an assessment of these words on a Friday. A home spelling book will be sent home for your child to practise their spellings (we will show the children how to use this book in school). Please can we ask that the home spelling book is brought into school each day.
PE (PE kit)
Skylarks will have their PE lessons on a Monday and a Wednesday. On PE days children will need to come to school in their PE kits and remain in them all day. One lesson will be outside so remember to wear joggers and jumpers too.
Swimming – Skylarks will be swimming in the Summer term. We will send a letter with the details of the cost and timings of swimming lessons in advance.
Trips and Visits
In Year 4, the children have the responsible job of being Eco monitors, so in September they attend a Residential at Stibbington Centre, where they learn how to fulfil their new roles. This is an exciting adventure which means staying away from home for two nights.
Class Assemblies and Performances
Year 3 / 4 Production: Each Spring, Year 3 / 4 produce a play, full of songs and performances, in which all children across the Phase take part. Please don’t miss it!
Class Assemblies : In the Autumn and Summer terms, we will present a class assembly to the parents/carers which takes place on a Friday at 3pm. Look out for the dates!
