Y4 - Iguana

Welcome Back to Term 3.

Welcome Back to Term 3.   1


Reading should be happening at home 3x per week (out loud to an adult). 

Please see the letter sent home today. 

Studies have proven that children who read regularly to an adult do better academically. 


A little bit about me...


My name is Mrs Welch. As well as being a teacher , I am a busy Mum of 3 children (13, 12, and 9). 


I don't get a lot of spare time but when I do I like to walk my dogs (Fudge and Bob) and relax by listening to music. 


This will be my second year at Barley Close. I'm incredibly lucky and I'm super excited about teaching Iguana Class in 2019-2020. 


Reading Records Due in on Mondays and Thursdays

Reading Records will be monitored on a Monday to ensure that children are on track to read 3x per week. 


At present, 20% of the class (5 children) are achieving this which is concerning. 


Research shows that reading aloud at least 3 times a week can dramatically improve their learning skills and confidence. We must see adult signatures to prove children have been reading.




Spellings will be given on a Thursday and then tested on the following Thursday. 


Please support your children to learn their spellings. Some will be from the Year 3/4 spelling lists. Others will follow a pattern. 


Spellings can be found on this section of the class pages. 

I will also do my best to put a copy on the class door. 


In addition, children should also be bringing their spelling books home with a copy of their weekly spellings in. 













Learn, Often, Sea, Poor, Know


These spellings will be tested on Thursday 30th January 2019
