Welcome to the Year 3/4 class page. Mrs Dikkez and Miss O'Reilly are our class teachers and Mrs Lowther and Mrs Allen are our class teaching assistants. Here you can find lots of information about Year 3/4 as well as keeping up to date with all of the exciting things that we get up to throughout the school year.
Throughout the Autumn term we will be covering a wide range of topics. In our Come and See we will be studying three different themes: people, called and gifts. In addition we will also be studying Judiasim. In Geography this term we will investigating the question 'Where do i belong?' We will discuss rivers in the UK. In our Science topic we will be investigating the questions 'What makes pitch and sound change?' and 'Can bulbs be made brighter or dimmer?' Our History topic this term will be all about the Roman impact on technology and religion. In Art this term the focus will be on developing our drawing skills. Design and Technology sessions will include designing and creating an electric Christmas decoration. In music this term we will be listening to a range of music and composing our own. We will remind ourselves of the importance of E-safety during our comuting time.
Homework for Y3/4 will be given out on Fridays. It will consist of three activities and should be handed back into class no later than the following Wednesday. Each week children will have 10 spellings to learn. The spelling test will be on a Wednesday morning. There will also be times tables to complete alongside a specific piece of maths relating to our learning that week. There may also be one other activity which may be English, topic or related to Come and See.
Children also need to be encouraged to read every night (15-20 minutes). Please try to hear them read as much as possible and ask them questions about the text or explain words/phrases they are unsure of. We ask that you sign the reading diary at least three times a week to show that your child has read at home.
PE in Year 3/4DO will be swimming on Mondays and Thursdays. Swimming will continue on Monday mornings for the whole of this term. Please ensure that girls have their hair tied up and that they don't come to school with earrings in. We will be doing one session of PE outdoors so please ensure your child also has their outdoor kit in their PE bag. We ask that your child has their PE bag in school every Monday and they are free to take it home to wash on a Friday.
