Welcome to Ridgeway Class
Teachers carefully provide activities that are at the appropriate level for pupils. This helps pupils to build on their existing knowledge. For example, pupils in Year 3 and 4 were able to evaluate a range of methods to determine which is best to solve mental arithmetic calculations.
OFSTED December 2019
Ridgeway is a mixed class of children in Year 3 and Year 4. Our teacher is Miss Maundrell.

Long Term Planning
Please click on the buttons below for an overview of what will be taught in Ridgeway Class over a 2 year rolling programme.
- Daily Reading
- Weekly Times Tables
- Focus 5 Spellings - Children will have 5 focus spellings that we would like you to support them with - please ask your child what these are.
- Termly Spellings - Year 3 & 4 words
- Foster a love of reading.
- Record that your child has read in their reading record.
- Ask questions throughout reading (a list of possible questions will be added to the inside of your child's reading record).
Focus 5 Spellings - Following the Jane Considine Spelling Scheme children will become spelling detectives looking for patterns in spellings. Each child will have 5 focus spellings that they will focus on. Staff in school will be looking out for accurate use of these spellings before updating to new words to challenge your child.
Termly Spellings - These spellings your child needs to know by the end of the year but will be tested at least once each term.
Forest School takes place every Friday. Ridgeway pupils should bring appropriate clothes to change in to for this session along with waterproofs and wellies.
Maths Tables Test Year 4
The multiplication tables check is designed to help ensure children in primary school know their times tables up to 12 by heart. As well as being critical for everyday life, knowledge of multiplication tables helps children to solve problems quickly and flexibly, and allows them to tackle more complex mathematics later on in school.
In the primary assessment consultation run by the government last year, the majority of the sector said that Year 4 would be the best point to run a check on progress being made.
The new on-screen check will last no longer than 5 minutes and is similar to the checks many schools use already. It will enable teachers to monitor a child's progress in a consistent and reliable way but has been carefully designed to avoid causing additional stress for children and teachers.
