Years 3 and 4

Welcome to Years 3 and 4. With three classes in LKS2 we work closely together to ensure a smooth transition from KS1 whilst preparing our Year 4 students for the challenges in UKS2. This year we will be studying Ancient Greeks, Geography around the World and Anglo Saxon Britain.

Homework

Both year groups have homework which is set every Friday and is to be completed by the following Thursday. In Year 3 students will be given spellings (10 new spellings to be learnt and definitions or sentences to be written out) and Maths homework (which will be completed online using Education City). In Year 4 they will have weekly spellings homework, but will alternate between Maths homework (using Education City) and English comprehension homework which will be completed in their Homework Book.

PE

Each class will receive two PE lessons a week. One will be indoors (dance, gymnastics and problem solving) and one outside (ball games, racquet and striking activities and athletics). During one term, each class will also have a dance lesson run by our current dance teacher. We also swim in the Summer Term during our outdoor PE lesson

All children are expected to have the correct PE kit for the activities they are doing. This includes appropriate PE kit for the weather conditions. A list of the appropriate PE kit can be obtained from the School office and on our website.

Please remember that children cannot take part in PE with earrings. This means that if they are unable to remove earrings themselves, they will not be able to take part in PE. Please ensure that on PE days all earrings are removed prior to coming to school or that the child can remove them on their own.

Parent Helpers

We welcome all parent helpers who are able to come in and help. Regular reading is a big part of helping children to succeed and we would love for you to volunteer and support us in this goal. We also have trips and activities in school which require additional support and supervision. Parent helpers are a valuable part of allowing us to deliver a varied and inspirational curriculum to their children. If you are interested in helping in Year 3 and 4 please speak to your child's teacher.
