We Should Be The Best We Can Be For We Are All God's Masterpiece

Lessons in Year 3 and 4 are designed to challenge all pupils with many opportunities for teachers and students to assess the learning taking place. Learning is planned in a cross-curricular way ensuring that children can make connections between English and other areas of the curriculum. Pupils cover a wide variety of topics and we aim for learning to be: a memorable experience, be hands on, taught within an immersive learning environment and to have cross- curricular links. All of this learning is brought to life through many hands on experiences such as visits, WOW days and Fabulous Finishes in school.

Please ensure a pair of trainers is also at school for other days when children are on the school field for break and lunch times. All jewellery is to be removed for these lessons.  We expect all children to be able to remove their own jewellery (including earrings) by themselves and long hair must be tied up.

Details of Home Learning

Each week, children will have spellings, reading and times tables to complete. The times tables practice is to be completed on TTRockstars. Each child has their own login and their class teacher will be setting times tables for them to work on. The amount of practice completed will be checked weekly.

With reading and spellings, these will alternate either being set on Google Classroom or a hand-written task. When on Google Classroom, the learning will need to be ‘turned in’. All children will be expected to read regularly at home every week. All children’s spelling sheets will be kept in a purple folder and spelling tests will take place on a Friday. 

Google Classroom

Children in Years 3 and 4 will each week either be set a spelling or reading task on Google Classroom. The children will then be asked to ‘turn in’ their learning for the teacher to see/comment on.

Year 4 Times Table Test

Here is some information about the year 4 multiplication test that will take place in the summer. These are some ideas of how you can help your child at home and how the test will be administered in school.

 How you can help

Parents can support their children's learning through: good attendance (above 96%), being punctual, practising spellings and times tables, reading, and discussing the books daily. Also by giving children the opportunity to visit the local library to read about and research our topics.

If you would like to discuss how you could help your child at home, please see your child's class teacher. We welcome parental involvement in the life of our school.

If you have any questions about our years 3/4 phase please do not hesitate to make an appointment with our phase leader Mrs Varrier.
