Could you survive in a Stone Age world?
Year 3 and 4 Autumn Term Information
Welcome back after what turned out to be very long break. Our topic this term is ‘Could you survive in a Stone Age World'? – as we continue our history learning about amazing ancient civilisations. The children will learn about the Stone Age in the UK, where evidence for this might be found and what it might have been like.
Mrs Day is our Phase Leader and Class 4 teacher. Mrs Mace teaches Class 5 and Mrs Cunniffe/Mrs Garratt teach Class 6.
English and Maths groupings
Children in Year 3 and 4 are put in to sets, based on their age for Maths. There will be 4 groups for maths, taught by Mrs Mace, Mrs Day, Mrs Cunniffe/Mrs Garratt and Mrs Wilson and 3 groups for English.
The book we will e focussing on during english for the first part of this term is 'Stone Age Boy'

Children will still have spelling lessons within their English groups, and National Curriculum spelling lists will now be given out at the start of the year for the children to learn for the half-termly spelling test. Children will be expected to learn one column of spellings per half term and will require help and support at home to ensure the children achieve well. We realise that some of these spellings may appear quite demanding, but every child in the country has to be proficient in the spelling of these relevant age-related words. (See attached list)
In addition, the children will practise spelling in their own class every morning and have access to Spelling Shed.
Outdoor PE is timetabled for Wednesday afternoon for all classes in Year 3 and 4 this term and all children need to come to school dressed in their PE kit at this time. At this time of the year, the weather is very changeable so always send your child in with the appropriate PE uniform (please refer to the school PE uniform policy on our website for guidance). May we remind you that all uniform should be labelled to avoid any confusion and missing kit. This is especially important for our new Year 3's who are getting used to being more responsible for their belongings.
Year 3/4 have Forest school in Spring Term with Mr Thorpe on a Friday. Details will follow next term.
All children are expected to read for up to 30 minutes three times per week as part of their homework and have their reading diary signed by an adult. These will be checked by their teacher during daily Guided Reading lessons. Different classes have one library slot per week (due to current Covid 19 guidance). All pupils in Year 2/3/4, when reaching a suitable standard, will have access to Accelerated Reader, where children read their choice of book and complete a comprehension quiz online at the end. These results are tracked by teachers and the children achieve points for good test results.
Each week on a Monday your children will receive:
Spelling Shed assignments for regular practise linked to our learning in school and games for fun.
MyMaths/Times Table Rockstars homework relating to the current concept they are learning.
This is all to be completed by the following Monday and logged on Google Classroom - logins will be issued shortly.
Topic-related homework will be given once per term at the teachers discression. This will normally be a small project which could include independent research and an outcome.
If you have any further questions or queries about life in Year 3 and 4, please arrange to see your child’s class teacher after school.
Thank you for your continuing support,
The Year 3/4 Team.
