Years 3-4

Welcome to Years 3 - 4



Welcome back to summer term 2022

Hope you all had a lovely Easter break.



In Year 3/4 our literacy is linked to our topic on the Romans and we will be looking in more depth at Roman myths. In addition we will be writing recounts and newspaper reports about significant events and people during the Roman occupation of Britain.

I have noticed that a significant number of children are not taking their reading books home regularly. If you could also remind them I would be very grateful. Please make a note in their reading records (or even better, get them to do it), of any reading they do at home that’s sparked their interest, even if it’s a comic.

I have reviewed our Accelerate Reading Scheme and set every child a target of at least 15 minutes reading a day.



Times tables underpins so many aspects of maths, which is why we practise them regularly a school. For the first time this year, children in year 4 will have to complete a statutory times table test. This test will take place in June and the aim is to identify children who may need additional support as they move up to Years 5 & 6. We have been practising in school and will continue to do so, but please encourage your children to practise at home. Just ten minutes a day will make a big difference to their recall and improve their confidence.  There are resources on the Y3/4 class page.



Thank you.
