Class 3 – Year 3 / 4

Teacher: Miss Parry

Welcome to Sycamore Class! This is the home of our year 3 and 4 children.

Spring Topic: The Amazing Ages

In this topic we are going to be exploring the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age, looking at how housing has changed over time. We will also be looking at rivers and the water cycle in geography.

In English, we will be reading "Arthur and the Golden Rope" by Joe Todd-Stanton and "The Lost Happy Endings" by Carol Ann Duffy. We will be writing our own narratives, information texts and letters.

In Maths we will continue to use Power Maths which prompts pupils to Discover, Share and Think Together about various mathematical concepts. This term we will be looking at multiplication and division, fractions and mass.

Important Notices:

Please read with your child 4x a week and record this in their diaries. Reading at home makes an enormous difference to their comprehension and writing work in school. Children receive house points when they read 4 times or more a week at home.
Please practice your timetables on TT Rockstars for 30 minutes a week.

Weekly homework will be:

  • One writing task given on Friday to be handed in on Wednesday
  • a maths question a day from Monday to Thursday
  • a weekly spelling test on Tuesday.
  • 30 minutes a week on TT Rockstars
  • Reading 4x a week.


PE will be on a Monday and a Wednesday. Swimming is every Tuesday.
