Year 3 and 4

Welcome to Willow Class

Welcome to Willow Class - we are a mixed age Year 3 and 4 class. We are the lower part of Key Stage 2.

Children in our class are aged 7-9 years old

We have two main class teachers: Mrs Pope (Monday and Tuesday) and Miss Barber (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). As well as our main class teachers we have specialist teachers who deliver some of our learning: Miss Drake teaches PE and Mrs Mackintosh teaches Art. 

We are supported in class 4 days a week by our teaching assistant; Mrs Smith.

Within year 3 and 4 we learn English and mathematics most mornings. Our English sessions incldue time spent on reading, writing, speaking and listening and spelling. Our maths sessions follow a mastery curriculum working through addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measure, geometry and times tables. Our mathematics curriculum teaches a mixture of fluency, reasoning and problem solving. In our afternoon sessions we learn a further range  of subjects; topic (including history or geography), science, music, French, PE, art, RE, PSHE and we take part in gardening sessions as part of a whole school timetable.  Each term we are invited to attend at least one after school sports club and have the option of learning guitar in school with a specialst guitar tecaher - Mr Murphy. 

You can find out more about our topics and areas of learning  by exploring the curriculum overviews and long term plans. There is also more detail about our areas of learning in our class newsletters.

What will our class look like in September?

We have created a Social Story for you to read about returning to school in September. We hope that you find it useful. We will continue to update the website with any new guidance that we receive from the Government. 

Let us know if you have any questions and we will do our best to help.

Google Classroom

We have been really pleased to see so many of you sign up for Google classroom and start to use it. This will continue to be used over the summer and will be used in September for both class lessons and for homework. It will be used by the children throughout their time at Ringsfield School.

Google Classroom will also be a vital tool of communication and work should the school need to close again in the future for bad weather or due to further Covid related lockdowns. So, please, if you have not given permission for your child to use it yet, get in touch. If you are unsure about using it for safety or data protection reasons, then please send us an email and we will arrange to call you and discuss your concerns.

If you have signed up to Google classrooms, then please try and activate your log in this week and try it out incase you have any problems or questions that you would like us to address before the School holidays. 

Below is a link to a Youtube video that Mr Jeal from Brampton has put together to hopefully help with any queries.
