Aspen Class (years 3 and 4)

A message from the class teacher, Mr Whitnell.



As we head into term 6, I would first of all like to say a big thank you to Aspen parents and children for continuing to contribute to the wonderful Milstead community. Keeping in touch by email, sending pictures of wonderful home learning, speaking on the phone, making cards or posters – everyone has done so well.

I would like to thank the children for their perseverance and for engaging with the learning being sent home. I know what we will see will be the tip of the iceberg, but it is a pleasure to see what the children have been up to.

This term’s Maths will cover the full range of angles, measures, shapes, and statistics. Times Table Rockstars continues to be a lockdown success, and our class have done brilliantly – locked in a battle with Oaks for times table glory. It’s so great to see the children still challenging themselves and enjoying this fun way to keep their tables fluent and sharp!

There will be, as ever, a range of writing opportunities for children – chances to write letters, interviews, reviews and factfiles. Whilst it is difficult to read a text together as we would in class, I appreciate the children who watched me reading the stories for ‘Bored’ and ‘Lily Plants a Garden’ last term.

We will continue to endeavour to provide a range of exciting and challenging learning covering the curriculum through the packs sent home. If you or your children have any questions at all, or need any support then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Once again, we would be delighted to see any work or achievements of Aspen children that you are willing to share. Alternatively, they may just like to say hello, which is great too - please do stay in touch.

Take care, all our best wishes,

The Aspen Team J
