Term 4 Information 

Welcome to Topaz Class page


We can't believe that we are already half way through the academic year! It was lovely  to read the children's highlights of term 3 when they were composing their paragraphs for the school newsletter. It seems like both DT (creating cars for our own Wacky Races) and the many challenges completed in computing were firm favourites with the class.


Term 4  be just as exciting as we learn about Mountain biomes, write tales of fear and start looking at fractions in maths. More information about the work to be covered are included in our topic web, attached below.


This term we have, once again, included a useful 'maths aid' with our resources. This will  explain the mathematical strategies we will be focusing on this term. If you need any more information to help you support your children with their learning please let us know. As we mentioned to many of you at parents evening, one of the maths areas that you can support your children with is times tables- please keep up the practise of these at home as it will really help your children with their work on fractions.


Thank you for all your support, the large amount of raffle tickets in our 'Reading' jar shows just how much the children are enjoying books with you at home. Well done to our termly winners, we hope they enjoyed their prizes. As we regularly say to the children, the more they read at home, the more tickets they win and the greater chance they have of winning a prize.


Keep up the great work in term 4
