During the Spring Term our topic is Monsters and More!  Linked to this we will be reading and writing myths and legends in English as well as focusing on the great poem Beowulf. We will learn how to design a maze game in IT and undertake exciting projects in art and DT.  In History pupils will learn about the Anglo-Saxons. We will discover who they were, when they came to Britain, what life was like in Anglo-Saxon times as well as learning about the impact important discoveries such as the Sutton Hoo burial site has had on our understanding of Anglo-Saxon Britain. Our Geography focus will centre on UK settlements and this term's science topic will be on States of Matter.




In Year 3/4J homework consists of times tables, spellings and occasional topic work.

Practising times tables will also help in all areas of your child’s maths work.

High Frequency spellings will be given out on Monday and tested the following Monday.

We will be following the RWI Get Spelling Programme, beginning in January 2016


Reading is such a valuable life skill and is also relevant across all subjects within school. Regular practise really does make a huge difference to reading ability, as does talking about what has been read with someone at home too. Please try to ensure your child reads at home for at least 15 minutes each night and gets their home/school diary signed to indicate that this has happened. Books from the reading scheme will be changed weekly, where there is evidence of at least 3 occasions when the child has been heard by an adult at home.

PE will take place on Mondays (swimming)  and Wednesdays in Year 3/4J. It is expected that your child will have the appropriate indoor and outdoor PE kit available on these days. We ask that the children bring their PE kits in on a Monday and take them home on a Friday.  The correct PE kit consists of: a white t-shirt, red shorts and plimsolls for indoor sports. Trainers are required for outdoor activities.
