  • PE this term will be on a Wednesday and a Friday afternoon. We will be working on key skills in both sessions and will use the outdoor space as much as we can. Please ensure your child has suitable clothing for both indoor and outdoor PE.

Reading

We are currently assessing the children on our Accelerated Reader program. This is a program that runs throughout Years 3 and 4 and requires the children to complete a short comprehension task once they have completed their book. The children will come home this week with their new book. The book may be of an easier reading level then they have had previously, but please remember that we are looking at their level of understanding as well as their fluency in reading. Please talk to your class teacher if you have any concerns.

Home Learning

Homework will be sent out each Thursday and it needs to be returned by the following Tuesday. All homework will be practising and rehearsing key skills in both English and Maths.

We have now invested in an education platform called Purple Mash. The children will all be given individual passwords that can be used both at school and at home. This can be used to access the program. Please take time to have a look with your child, following the link below

https://www.purplemash.com/sch/cranborneen6can

 

The children still have log-ins for Mathletics. Please follow the link below to access the site.

Homework will sometimes be set on theses sites so please ensure your child knows their log-in details,

SPELLINGS

Below are the lists of spellings for both years 1/2 and years 3/4. The children are currently being assessed on the Year 1/2 spellings and these will be sent home so you can see where any mistakes have been made. Please work on the unknown spellings with your child at home. The children will begin learning the words from the 3/4 spelling list later this term.
