This is our Year 3 and Year 4 class. Our teachers are Mrs Standrell and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Kenyon. We have P.E. on Thursdays and Fridays and Violin on Monday afternoon. Children will take their violins home to practice and must bring them in each Monday morning.
Please see our PowerPoint presentation about joining Years 3 and 4.
Life in Team Rigby
Spellings an activities to help learn these new words are sent home every Monday via our online learning platform Purple Mash. These will be tested the following Monday. Please ensure that your child thinks about the spelling rules and also thinks about the meaning of these new words to help to increase their understanding and knowledge of vocabulary. It is helpful to write these new words in full sentences at home to assist in learning how to use the word, however we will only test the individual words when we complete our test.
Reading is a key part of our curriculum and the children will have a banded reading book and also a free-choice book from our class library. We encourage the children to take ownership of their reading and learning and we would like them to record in their Home/School reading diaries and think about the texts they have enjoyed. The children are responsible for informing staff when they have finished a book and they change them independently. This is a skill we will support when the Year 3 children are first introduced to it but we expect them to be completing this independently after the Autumn half term.
Team Rigby is a class in which learning is full of fun, laugher an enjoyment. We work hard as a team putting in 100% effort and dedication into all that we do. We always choose to follow our six gospel values, in doing so creating an excellent environment for our learning.
There are opportunities to become part of our School and Eco Council. Children will be able to put themselves up for election, create a presentation and be voted in for their role by their peers. We also have some other very exciting roles within Team Rigby, these include P.S.H.E Ambassadors, Spiritual Leaders and everyone will have the opportunity to be classroom monitors throughout the year. Our twitter demonstrates some of the opportunities and activities for children whilst in Team Rigby and we hope that you enjoy seeing the exciting learning experiences we have during the course of the year.
Throughout the children's time in Team Rigby, they continue to develop a love of learning, in which knowledge sticks and we enhance their commitment to becoming life long learners.

A Knowledge Organiser is a set of key vocabulary, facts and information on a topic that your child needs to be able to know and recall by the end of the topic. Please use these at home as conversation starters to discuss learning and as a way of helping your child commit their learning to long-term memory (for example, you may want to cut up the vocabulary and meanings and play matching pairs or encourage your child to learn how to spell the words).

Wider Opportunities in Team Rigby
As Spiritual Leaders in each year group, all children are given the opportunity to prepare the weekly class worship and lead on the planning and delivery of a whole school worship once every half term. At the end of the child-led worship, the Spiritual Leaders are then presented with a certificate to recognise what they have done within their year group.
The Spiritual Leaders are responsible for ensuring that their class reflective worship area is clean, tidy and up to date with their learning in R.E. as well as the termly Gospel Value.
Spiritual Leaders are also able to participate in a weekly lunchtime club to develop their knowledge of our school vision, values and understanding of worship.
See our Christianity at Newburgh page for more information on this.
