Years 3-4

Welcome to Years 3 - 4

Summer 1 2024


Literacy this term is based on our Amazon Adventure Theme. Our learning will be based on The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry. We will be using the text to write information reports as well as persusive pieces based on our need to take care of our world. 


There is a copy of  this term's timetable below.


Please note that this half term on a Thursday afternoon, Y3/4 will be doing PE with Sports Cool.




We are going to continue with our weekly prize draw. Children earn star tickets by reading at home and filling in their reading record. They can fill in their own records, but can we please ask that parents also sign it.They will also earn star tickets when they finish a book.The more they read, the more tickets they earn!



 I want the children to focus on spellings, times tables and reading. Every week the children will get a set of spellings based on our spelling focus, topic words and the Y 3/4 statutory word list. 


Keep practising your times tables. Y3 children are expected to quickly and accurately recall their x2,3,4,5, 8 and 10 times tables and Y4 all their times tables up to the 12th multiple. 



Get in touch if you have any questions.
