Year 3/4

Welcome to the Year 3/4 Class Page

 

Mrs Pestell will be teaching the class on a Monday and Tuesday. Mrs Edmonds will be teaching on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We will have Mrs Humfrey and Mrs Batey also supporting in our class. 

 

Autumn Term

Our topic for this term is The Romans. We will be finding out about when the Roman Empire began and what life was like in Ancient Rome. We will make mosaics in Art and be learning about volcanoes in Geography. Our Science lessons will focus on states of matter (solids, liquids and gases) and rocks. 

 

Homework 

Reading 

Children should be reading daily and discussing what they have read on a regular basis with an adult. When the children have read at home a comment needs to be written in the reading journal. 

 

Spellings

The children will be given spellings to learn on a weekly basis and we will be looking for evidence of the children spelling these words correctly in their independent writing. 

 

Maths 

By the end of year 4 the children are expected to know all multiplication and division facts to 12x12. Times Tables will be sent home on a Thursday to practice and tested on the following Thursday. 

 

Homework Book - these will need to be in school on a Monday and Thursday for new spellings and time tables to be given.
