Kentmere Academy

Year 3/4

Welcome to the Kentmere Academy, Year 3/4 page. Classes are a combination of students from Year 3 and Year 4. At Kentmere Academy, classes are mixed in order to both support students and encourage those students who are advancing quickly. The results have been successful with reduced class sizes, an improved working relationship between teachers and students and academic progress in key areas.

Year 3/4 is an exciting time of discovery at Kentmere Academy. Students are encouraged to challenge what they know in order to develop analysis and evaluation skills. It is these skills that will be crucial for success during a student’s exam years.

READING BOOKS

Children need to bring their reading books into school everyday. Parents should sign the reading record to inform us of where their child has read up to at home each night. Please if your child reads to the end of a book at home, it will only be changed if the parent has noted this in the Reading Record.

AWARDS

As children read books at home, they move up the Reading Challenge Tree; they receive certificates and badges at the milestones of 20, 40 and 60 books. Children who read 80 books at home receive a certificate and book token.

Merits are awarded in recognition of good manners, hard work, achievement, progress and exemplary behaviour. Each week, one child from every class is chosen as Star of the Week - they receive a special badge and certificate in Celebration Assembly for their outstanding efforts towards excellence. 

Children who show exceptional kindness towards others are recognised on the ‘Kindness Tree’.
