Throughout the Spring term, in History we will be finding out about the Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain, their kingdoms and where they settled. In science we will be investigating the question ‘which rock is the hardest’ this will include participating in experiments and research. This term’s Art focus is painting and in DT we will be learning to sew to make a purse/bag. We will also be learning songs for our Easter production in Music. Computing topic is ‘Using a Computer’ which involves saving a file, using suitable file names, using the mouse appropriately and copying a text. In PE, we will be doing Basketball and Gymnastics.



Homework for Y3/4 will be given out on Tuesdays.  It will consist of three activities and should be handed back into class no later than the following Monday. Each week children will have 10 spellings to learn.  The spelling test will be on a Tuesday morning. There will also be times tables to complete alongside a specific piece of maths relating to our learning that week and a piece of grammar work. 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.

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.
