It's Assembly Time!
During Assembly time, we are going to be focussing on Lent.
Lent is the six-week period leading up to Easter. It's a very important time for Christians around the world. Some Christians will choose to give something up for Lent, for example, chocolate, whereas other Christians may choose to give up social media or watching TV in order to refocus their faith.
This year, the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham has produced a Lent Challenge which involves completing 24 activities over the next 40 days.
To access the challenges, click here: 24 Acts of Lent
To learn about Ash Wednesday: Ash Wednesday Talking Points
To learn more about Lent: Lent at Home

Class 3 have a spelling test every Thursday afternoon. We understand that some spellings can be tricky to learn so it is important to practice regularly and look out for the patterns that can help you! When children reach 150 correct spellings, they will receive an exciting treat! The Year 3/4 Statutory Spelling list can be accessed here: Spellings
In June 2021, Year 4 children will be sitting a new Times Tables test. We have daily practice in Class 3 but it is encouraged that children also practice at home. There are many fantastic websites and apps to use but we love using 'Hit the Button' in Class 3, which can be accessed here: Hit the Button
Reading is a regular and enjoyable part of our day in Class 3 and it is fantastic to see so many children reading at home too! There is an expectation in KS2 that children are reading at least three times per week, signed by an adult at home.
All children have a Reading Bookmark in the back of their homework diaries - for every read at home (signed by a grown-up), children will receive a star. When children have collected 15 and 30 stars, they will be rewarded!
