Year 3 and 4 Parent Welcome 'Meeting'

A welcome to year 3 and 4, including information about curriculum coverage this year, how we teach mixed age group classes and how you can support your child's learning at home.

November 2020


The children have worked very hard during Term 1 to remember behaviours for learning, as well as their actual learning. I think we all come to the end of a very different term, quite tired. Take the opportunity over half term to get lots of fresh air and lots of sleep. We certainly will be!


If you would like to do some work over half term, please see the links below to videos on letter formation and handwriting. This is a focus for year 3 and 4 this term, since the majority of children are not joining their handwriting. Being able to write fluently and easily, is really important in making progress in English.


There is also a crafting project! The children have been learning about aqueducts as part of their Roman history studies. Perhaps a rainy day activity could include trying to make a working model of an aqueduct. Have a look in the DT section below.


The curriculum pages detailing the subjects we are studying in Term 2 have changed. You can find information about the topics and links to video clips and questions you can discuss with parents and carers. Some of these are our lessons, some are lessons by BBC Bitesize or Oak National Academy that link with our curriculum. These might help you to do some learning if you are at home for any reason, obviously only if you are well enough. 


There are also links to work on tables and spellings that can be done at home to support learning in school. 


As a reminder:


We expect children to be reading every day - ideally with an adult. If you are taking your reading record home, please ask an adult to update your record. 

You need to have a water bottle in school every day.

If you bring a snack for breaktime, it should be a healthy option - fruit, vegetable crudites, bread sticks, rice cakes, cheese etc. Not crisps, chocolate or sugary cereal bars. 

Children need to bring a PE kit on the following days - be prepared to go outside, even as the weather gets colder - note that for Term 2, Miss Pope's Monday PE slot has changed to Wednesday afternoon.
