Welcome to the Year 3/4 class page. Mrs Dikkez and Miss O'Reilly are our class teachers and Mrs Lowther is our class teaching assistant. 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.
Our topic this Spring is Romans! We will explore many aspects of life in Roman times and will bring our learning to life with a Roman feast and themed dress-up day. In English we will read about events in Pompeii and will write diary extracts from that time. We will also look at adventure stories, explanation texts and playscripts. Maths will continue to focus on multiplication and division as well as fractions, decimals and measurement. In Geography this term we will find out about rivers and mountains, and through our Science topic will investigate light, forces and magnets. Our Come and See topics this term are called Journeys, Listening & Sharing and Giving it All. In addition, we will be learning about and preparing our presentation of the Easter Story.
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 and one other activity which may be English, Maths, 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 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.
