They are assisted by Mrs Fox, Mrs Brettell, Mrs Mellows and Mr Walczynski, and Mrs King.

Our main topics through year 3/4 are Our Community; The Romans, Habitats, Far Ings, St Lucia and Electricity. 

English

In Year 3/4 we will be having daily SPAG sessions to improve and develop our knowledge and understand of spelling, punctuation and grammar.

We will then be learning how to use these skills to extend and develop our sentences to improve our writing, write in paragraphs, use commas and speech marks appropriately and use a range of writing styles to improve working independently.

Sessions will take place in year groups.

 

Maths

In Year 3/4 we will learn all our times tables facts, learn how to set out calculations in different ways using our maths toolkit, we will learn how to read, use and work with fractions and decimals, and develop reasoning skills.

Sessions will take place in year groups.

Reading

It is expected that your child will read at home at least 3 times a week. Please take the time to talk to your child about the book they bring home—what they have read, what has happened and whether they enjoyed the book.

Each half term there will be a reading challenge to encourage children to read to earn a certificate.

Guided reading lessons will continue to be held every day from 9.00-9.30am, so please make every effort to get your child to school before 8.55am.

PE

Please make sure that your child has black shorts and a white T-shirt to wear for P.E. lessons.

Children should bring their kit on a Monday and take it home the following Friday.  PE kit should be in a bag that will hang on their peg under their coat. Please ensure all items are labelled with your child’s name and class.

Uniform and Jewellery

Children should wear a white or yellow polo shirt with a green jumper and black or grey skirt or  trousers. Black shoes should be worn, not trainers or boots of any sort. Please ensure that your child does not wear jewellery.  Long hair MUST be tied back throughout the day. Nail polish and make-up are not allowed. Headscarves or coverings may be worn for religious purposes, but they must be a plain school colour (black, white, grey, yellow or green).

Home Learning

The blue home learning book will be sent home every Friday. Please ensure your child returns their book by Wednesday of the following week, when each class will be choosing their homework champions. Please do encourage children to do their best work, and feel free to give advice to!

Accompanying the home learning books will be a spiral bound book of key words, tables, calculation methods, and key spellings to support your child's learning.

Additional Information

Water bottles should be taken home for washing daily. Children should not bring electronic/valuable items such as tablets, Smartphones or hand held games consoles into school for Golden Time. Please ensure your child comes to school on time every day. Attendance certificates will be given out for each half term. Classes  that beat their attendance target will be rewarded with a party.
