In Lower Key Stage Two, we expect children to read 5 times a week and bring their reading book into school every day. Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday to be assessed on the Friday of that week. Your class teacher will also provide a weekly Seesaw task relating to any area of the curriculum. For example, children may be expected to complete an activity relating to learning in Arts, Humanities, R.E, Spanish, Science and Wellbeing. The tasks will vary each week. Please check your child's Seesaw page for more details. 

At the end of Year 4, all children are assessed on their times table facts. You can find more information here. We expect children to be practicing their times table on TTRockstars at least twice a week. Their login details should be glued in their Reading Record.


Our P.E. days are:

3D & 3S - Monday and Tuesday 

3T - Monday and Friday

A gentle reminder that our school P.E. kit is a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps or trainers for outdoor sports, without visible branding.  Children can come to school dressed in their PE kit, as long as it is the proper P.E. uniform.  Otherwise, they will need to bring it in a separate bag.

Water bottles and snacks

Don't forget to bring a water bottle to school each day - it is important for children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please label bottles and refill them each day.

Children are welcome to bring a healthy snack such as fruit and vegetables to school each day for snack time. Breadsticks and milk can be purchased at the start of each half-term (please speak to the school office about this).


In our English lessons we will be reading I saw a peacock and creating our own poems about an imaginary journey. Our shared reading texts in class for this term are The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and Amazing Rivers by Julia Vosburgh Agnone.

We will be reading this text regularly and completing tasks on it to improve our reading skills, as well as reading for pleasure. As  inspiration for our writing this term, will be reading Amazing Rivers and will write a range of genres based on this text.


In Mathematics this term we will be continuing with the topic of fractions before moving onto Shape, Space and Measure.

Get on Ttrockstars!  If you want to be the best, you have to practise!


Throughout the year, we will cover topics in a spiralised curriculum to ensure children retain information taught. This will include Plants, Animals including humans, Rocks, Light and Materials. We will focus on subject-specific vocabulary and investigation skills. 


The Roman Empire

Our topic for this term is The Romans. We will look at the life or the Romans including Julius Caesar. We will look at what life was like for Roman soldiers and looking at the impact of the Roman invasion and how life has changed today because of them.



We will be looking at the different parts of a river and how each feature was formed. We will hopefully be visiting a local river to complete some fieldwork to further our knowledge. In addition we will be looking at the different rivers of the world and comparing their localities. 


In Art this half-term we are studying the work of  Amelia Graham and learning how to print onto textiles. In DT next half term we will be investigating different types of pizza before designing and making our own. We will use evaluation skills at the end of the unit.
