Maple Class are our Year 3 and 4 children and, as we move into Key Stage 2 we build on the skills acquired in Key Stage 1, learning to apply these across an increasingly sophisticated and varied curriculum.
Our teacher is Mr Helsby.
Some of the other adults who work in our class are
Mrs Clarke, Mrs Harris, Mrs Banks, Miss Fisher & Mrs Goatley.
Below you can download documents you might find useful such as our termly curriculum map, timetables and National Curriculum documents.
If you want to do some extra work with your child, please log in to Purple Mash. You can access a wide range of brilliant activities and educational games. Ask your child for their log in username and password. If they have forgotten it then contact Mr. Helsby.
TT Rockstars is another fantastic website and app which helps the children learn their all important times tables. It tries to make learning times tables as fun as possible and competes with local schools to be the best. Come on Brightwalton, let's make it to number one in the TT Rockstars chart! There is now a times tables test for all year 4 children and it is hoped they will be fluent in all times tables up to 12x. The test will be taken in June.
Children have a small pocket sized homework diary to write down any homework they get. It's really helpful if parents could check these, sign and write any comment in. It's good to use as a communication tool too.
Spellings are set on either Monday or Tuesday, depending on which group your child is in. They will either have an 'Attack' sheet with spellings on to learn or a list of spellings in their green A5 size spelling book.
Monday - Reading - Comment in homework diary.
Tuesday - Spellings - all groups should have spellings to complete by today.
Wednesday - Creative homework (NOT every week) OR Activelearn- Hand in following Monday.
Thursday - Mental Maths - Hand in following Monday.
PLEASE NOTE that there is a homework club on Friday after school. If you think your child is prone to forgetting their homework, then maybe this club would be useful.
Homework is set to compliment the work at school so any support you give will be of benefit. Try to listen to your child read as much as you can and enjoy quality time together getting involved in some creative learning! We want to make children curious, enthusiastic and excited about learning. Use the wonderful resources on DB Primary to help making learning a little more exciting, especially for spelling and maths. You can log on to DB Primary from this page using the log in details given to your child.
Feel free to help your child with their homework but remember, if they are struggling and get upset, don’t worry! Leave it and make a comment in the homework diary.
