Welcome to Hedgehog Class.
Summer Term 2
You can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Summer has arrived at last! This means hot weather so please make sure you have a hat and water bottle with you every day. You may also want to put sun cream on before you come to school. Hot weather means missing jumpers so please make sure yours is clearly labelled with your name – then it’s easy to return them to you.
This term our topic is Journeys. You can find a detailed plan here: Medium term plan Summer 2.
Please read to an adult at home at least three times a week. Practise multiplication tables by using TT Rockstars or an alternative method. There will be a weekly spelling test, so you will need to practise at home. You can find this week’s spellings here:
Word Search Black and White week 6 Y3
Word Search Black and White week 6 Y4
If you cannot come to school because your family are isolating, I have provided two weeks of Oak Academy Maths and Literacy lessons below. You should complete one Maths and one Literacy each day, then practise your spelling, reading and multiplication tables.
Sometimes other arrangements can be made for you to learn at home. Please contact me as soon as you know you will not be able to attend school and we will find the best solution for you.

Each week you are expected to read to an adult at home at least three times. Books are sent home on Monday and should be returned the following Friday (unless you have not finished the book). In addition, you should practise multiplication tables on TT Rockstars and learn your weekly spellings. You may also choose to write a funny story and email it to me.
You are doing a brilliant job at keeping up to date with your 2Dos on Purple Mash. Many of you are also learning in other ways so I have a few more fantastic learning resources for you to use, if you choose to:
Daily lessons for each year group – teacher led.
Practise multiplication tables – Very important for Year 3 and Year 4.
As it is a new term, I have set some new tasks for you to do:
Iseemaths is a daily lesson, delivered by a teacher, for you to work through. You do not need a printer for these tasks. They are most suitable for Year 4 and Purple Table:
