Y3/4 Conkers Class
Welcome to Conkers class! We are the first of the Key Stage 2 classes at Crockham Hill Primary. We are courageous, confident and clever! We are a mixed year group class, consisting of 21 Year 3 children and 10 Year 4 children.
Although we are a mixed year group class, we are taught as single year groups in the mornings. Year 4 is taught by Miss Campling on Monday- Thursday and all day Friday. Year 3 is taught by Mrs Lakin-Hall on Monday- Thursday and by Mrs Miles all day Friday. Then, Conkers as a mixed class is taught in the afternoons on Monday- Thursday by Miss Campling. We also have Mrs Gibson (Teaching Assistant), Mrs De Frond (Teaching assistant) and Mrs Ceely (Teaching Assistant) in our class to help support the children in their learning.
We work closely with Dandelions class and share the same topics as they do (this is part of our three year cycle). We have so many amazing areas of study this year, including: What did the Romans do for us?, Where does Chocolate come from? and What happened in the Shang Dynasty? We also use our reading scheme, Little Wandle, to help us become fluent and expressive readers. We always use our positive mindsets during our learning and we always try our best!

Home learning will be set weekly in the children's homework books every Friday. Home learning is due on Friday.
Every week, the children will be set a list of spellings, an activity to do with the spellings, reading comprehension, and maths.
Homework will be marked promptly by the class teacher before the setting of new home learning each week.
The children will also be given a reading record at the beginning of the year. The children or their adult should record all of the books that they have read in their record and leave a small comment about what they thought of it!
Multiplication Check (Y4 only):
A Multiplication Tables Check takes place for all Year 4 children across England across a three-week window in June.
It is an expectation that all children sit this check. The purpose of the check is to determine whether your child can fluently recall their times tables up to 12x12. The test is set out similarly to Times Tables Rock Stars, as the children will need to type the answer into a box on the computer. They will have 6 seconds to answer a question. You can support your child, and help them prepare for this check, by encouraging them to learn and regularly practice their multiplication tables.
