Year 3 and 4 2022 - 2023

Miss Harvey

Welcome to Years 3 and 4!

Last term, the children worked really hard. We were all impressed by their creativity and curiousity that shone through their work. We cannot wait to see what ideas and achievements they will have this term. Click here to find out what we've been up to in the classroom this week.

We are very lucky to have Miss Baynham working with us this term. Mrs Whiteway will be teaching the class on Monday afternoons. On Wednesday, the children will have long PE lesson with the sports coaches. 

We have got lots of exciting learning opportunities ahead of us! Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with all our exciting adventures and achievements.


General reminders:

  • PE will be on Wednesday and Friday so please ensure your children come to school in their ‘Fit Friday’ kit.
  • Swimming will be on a Monday afternoon until the May half term. 
  • Please ensure that your child brings in a water bottle to school each day. They can change their water regularly in school. Please do not allow other drinks such as juice, fizzy drinks etc. If children bring juices, smoothies etc. they should be kept only for lunch.
  • Please try and read with your child every day to develop their reading skills and nurture their love of reading.
  • School reading books will be changed regularly.
  • Reading books and reading Records should be in your bag every day.
  • Homework will be sent out on Friday and is due back in the following Thursday.
  • Snack is 20p per day. Alternatively, children can bring £1 for the whole week. This will be served in the hall at break times. The children are responsible for looking after their own money. 



School can be contacted a number of ways including in person at the office or by phone and email. Appointments to speak to a teacher can also be made by contacting the school office. 





We ask the children to try and read a little every day, but at least three times a week. All school books are signed out to children under a library system and they will be expected to return their current book before they are allowed to take another. 

If they want to explore some new texts online, then the Oxford Reading Tree website has a free ebook section, where children can read books on their computer or tablet. You can sign up to it here and start browsing new books; 

In class, we will be focusing on a number of different texts together, including both stories and non-fiction books. These will link to our writing lessons.



In our writing, we are going to be focusing on a fiction book that has something to do with metal and snow… I will leave the guessing up to you! We will explore new vocabulary whilst learning new skills which we can use to develop our writing. 



Attached at the bottom of this page is a document which lists the spelling curriculum for Year 3 and 4 and common exception words. You may choose to practice these words and spelling patterns at home.


Here is a range of online games and websites that you might find helpful to support your reading and spellings.


Homework will be sent out each Friday and is due back the following Thursday. Homework may include spellings practice, a writing activity or a maths activity.


We have a busy term planned and we look forward to sharing the children's achievements and learning.
