A warm welcome to our class page!


Term 4!

Well done for an amazing return everyone you have all blown me away with your resilience and commitment to your learning. Have a well deserved rest and we will see you after the break! Please see at the bottom of the page our Easter Song ' All Things Bright and Beautiful'. 



Reading underpins everything we do. I expect you to read every day, for at least 10 minutes and to discuss what you have read with somebody. You must also have your reading records signed daily (we will be checking everyday) so you can move up our Reading Rocket Challenge and receive rewards and prizes! Our Reading Rocket Challenge is starting again and we will be earning rewards and prizes. If you read online this can also be signed in your reading records.


Times Tables


 This year our focus is learning our 2, 5 and 10 Times Tables, including knowing them in and out of order and the corresponding division facts e.g 2 x 3 = 6, 6 ÷ 3 = 2. I will send your Times Tables home at the beginning of each week and we will have a Times Table challenge every Friday!

You have your Times table rock star logins so please make the most of using these.



At Woodchurch we follow 'White Rose Maths'. In Maths this term we will be looking at Fractions. Any useful information to help support this at home will be uploaded onto this page.



Phonics and spelling!


Once we have settled this term we will begin our phonics and spelling groups. If you would like to know how your child is doing please get in touch but they should know by week 5 which group they are in and what sounds/ spellings they are doing. Spelling challenges will be done in school every week on a Friday and these will be based upon their learning from the previous week. Spellings will be from Friday- Friday to give you time to practise over the weekends too.


Connected Curriculum  


This term, we are looking at the topic 'Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.

See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls. Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim. Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower. Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let’s build a brand new one. Whose is the tallest? Can you measure it? Then dig deep, deep down, making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground. What’s that sound? I hear little hooves going trip, trap, trip, trap, over the rickety bridge. Watch out for the angry troll underneath. He likes to gobble up little girls and boys. Make sure your bridge is sturdy enough to take our weight and get us safely to the other side. And finally, meet three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls, they’ll be safe from the big, bad wolf. No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down.
