Welcome to Team Ribble With Mrs Price. I look forward to an exciting school year with you.

Please use this web page to support and extend your learning at home.

If you have any problems or questions please speak to Mrs Price :) 

Maths

 

These are some games and websites that we use in class. Have a go and don't forget to record your efforts in your reading diary. Good luck!

 

We are having a big focus on Times tables - Please use TTRS regularly to practise.

SOUNDCHECK  is similar to the style of questions your child will have in their Y4 multiplication Check in the summer term.

This week our focus is place value

Have a look at making numbers with place value cards and diennes - click here

Reading

Love reading for kids is an excellent site to find out about new books and authors that your child may be interested in. Pleasure of reading is so important. YOu do NOT need to buy these books - you could visit the library to loan a book.

Please ensure you sign your child's reading diary every time you read with them. Model good reading with expression and ask them questions about the text to ensure that they understand what they have read. Reading prompts have been added to your child's reading diary.

Talk 4 writing

Our  focus in writing is vocabulary and character description. We will learn a version of the story " The Little Red Riding hood".  At the end of the teaching children will use ideas from this story to write their own version.

Encourage your child to develop their vocabulary. When reading make sure they understand what the words mean. You could use a dictionary or a thesaurus to help. (This also practices dictionary skills) Add any tricky or exciting words to your reading diary.

Here is our version of Little Red Riding Hood.
