Throughout the Spring term we will be covering a wide range of topics. In our Come and See we will be studying three different themes: Community, Self-Discipline and Building Bridges.

In Science we will be investigating the questions "Can bulbs be brighter and dimmer?" and "What is the difference between a solid, liquid and gas?" Our History topic this term will be all about the Ancient Egyptian civilisation. For Design and Technology we will be thinking about the importance of healthy eating whilst making a healthy dish for the Ancient Egyptians. In Music this term, we will be busy rehearsing the songs for our Easter production. We will remind ourselves of the importance of E-safety during our computing 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 3/4 will be taking part in PE on Wednesday and Thursdays.  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.
