St Augustine

Welcome to St Augustine's Class!

We are a class of year 3 and year 4 pupils in the lower key stage two part of the school.

Our teacher is: Miss Ammah

Our teaching assistant is: Mrs Neil

 

Please see below for home learning opportunities: 

If your child is registered with the school as having specific special learning needs, please look at the home learning links to meet their requirements attached to this link. Thank you.

 

Our Learning

Each term we base our learning around a cross curricular theme (See the links below for more details).

We have a superstarter day to begin our theme learning and a fantastic finisher day to end.

We have a daily maths lesson that is taught discretely to theme  called 'Third Space’.

We are taught PE twice a week (one indoor and one outdoor) and RE once a week and separately too.

Literacy covers guided reading, comprehension, grammar, punctuation, spelling and handwriting sessions that are weaved into the content of our current theme. We link all of our learning through our weekly theme writing and extended writing termly. Computing is also delivered through our term topic. We have French every Friday, taught by a specialist teacher. 

School Priorities

Our school priorities are reading, writing and challenge this year. We follow the Accelerated Reader programme.

We are working hard in reading to have engaging displays in each classroom, including a designated reading areas and opportunities for quizzing. We have a beautiful Reading Bubble where children can select and check out their new books. The children work hard within Guided Reading sessions, individual reading, comprehension lessons and reading buddy time.

In writing, we have increased the time and opportunities our children have to write and try to meet this to their specific interests. We are really focused on vocabulary and believe that developing this is key to our children becoming successful writers. 

Challenge

We love a challenge in Saint Augustine and they are available all the time. We have a maths challenge wallet in our class, full of challenges related to our learning. We can take them at any time – even to do at home! We have a curriculum challenge set every term. We have a Maths chocolate challenge every week – speak to your child to see what the question is each week! Winners are displayed on the maths board and receive a prize. We also have children in our class who are part of the maths masters challenge club – speak to them to find out what they are up to!

Behaviour

Behaviour

We stick to the 6 golden rules that every class in the school tries to follow.

We are kind gentle, inclusive and supportive- we listen carefully and follow instructions- we respect and follow our school values- we look after property- we work hard to achieve and shine brightly- we are safe and honest so everyone can enjoy school.

We have a traffic lights system in class where ‘green to go’ is rewarded and red, orange and yellow behaviours result in clearly defined and understood  consequences.

Rewards

Individuals are rewarded for positive behaviour and effort in class by winning Dojo points.  Each child has an avatar which represents them and they can monitor their scores each day on the board. Then, at the end of the week the two children with the most points get to choose an item out of the class prize box.  Individual children are selected for our Whole School Praise Book and their names are read out on Fridays in assembly. This includes the ‘Green to Go’ award for the child in class who has shown increased effort, drive, determination or resilience. We also have a Maths star and a Literacy star each week.

Apply yourself in learning, follow the golden rules, have a great week and it’s sure to be you!

Our whole class rewards are negotiated with the class teacher at the start of term. We all put forward ideas of what we would like our reward to be then we vote for the most popular prize and work together as a class team to add points to our class chart. We all have different ones – ask your children about theirs.

PE

PE day is Tuesday.

Children need to wear plain dark shorts, plain white T shirt and plimsolls or trainers.

When it is cold outside children need to cover up with a pair of plain dark tracksuit bottoms or leggings and their school jumper.

Children must ensure their hair is tied back if it can be.

Children take any jewellery they are wearing off themselves, including earrings.

Children cover newly pierced earrings up with tape that their parents must provide them with. Only a small pair of stud earrings are allowed in school, no hoops please.

Homework

At the moment, homework expectations for pupils include the following:

  • Daily spelling practise (a write up of pupil groups and words is available on their class page)
  • Daily reading (both in school and at home to ensure they progress through quizzes regularly)
  • Daily times table practise (this can be written out, verbal or through websites- see below for links)

Pupils are welcomed, if not encouraged, to go above and beyond and use the various links, worksheets and tasks set out for them on this page to continue applying and developing their understanding. 

Partnership Work

Open Door

(in light of the recent coronavirus outbreak, additional adult activity in school is limited until further notice)

If you urgently need to speak to the class teacher please phone the office to leave a message and they will get back to you as soon as possible.

For less urgent matters, feel free to email the school office who will pass this on to the class teacher who will contact you shortly.

It is not always possible for the class teacher to talk on the playground due to the rapid movement required during drop off and pick up times.

Failing all of the above – write a note asking to speak to me and get your child to pass it on.

 

Parent – teacher partnership

How can you help?

- Reading- it is the key to everything. If we can get our children engaged and loving reading then they will achieve great things. When children read they are unknowingly taking in new vocabulary, spellings, sentence and text structures - and hopefully enjoying it too.

Using Accelerated Reader, encourages children to read as much as possible. Children should be bringing in their reading books every single day as they have opportunities to read every day. 

AR tests pupil comprehension therefore as soon as that book is finished they should be testing to maximise their performance on the test.

- Times table practice – this takes a long time and needs regular revision. We supplied the children with a sheet at the start of term displaying their tables and we don’t want these back. Stick them up somewhere at home, in the car or on the toilet door and encourage your child to recite them regularly. As and when, you can pop quick-fire questions at them – make it a game, get them to test you (and it’s even better if you find it hard!).

Come on In!

Come on in

(in light of the recent coronavirus outbreak, additional adult activity in school is limited until further notice)

If you have a few spare hours a week and would like to volunteer to help out in class, take a reading group, be around at lunchtimes or even at the allotment, just let your child’s teacher know and they will get Miss Strachan to contact you. We are always glad of an extra pair of hands!!! If you would like to come into school for a one off session to see how and what your child is learning and experience life as part of the class again, speak to the teacher or Miss Strachan – the more visitors we have in school the merrier.
