Where My Wellies Take Me
Year 3 and 4 Summer Term 2 Information
Our topic this half term is ‘Where My Wellies Take Me' and we will be looking at and using different ways of mapping our local area and using the school grounds and the surrounding area to develop our fieldwork skills. As part of our topic, the children will be taking and editing photographs of where we live and studying the works of the artists LS Lowry and A Giacometti to create thsir own representations of our local area and the people in it. We will be using the book ‘Where my wellies take me’ by Michael Morpurgo to support our English teaching. The book is a collection of 40 evocative poems which will support our reading, writing and cross curricular work.
Please download the topic web at the bottom of the page to find out more about what we will be covering in our topic this half term.
The children are grouped for spellings and phonics and will receive weekly spelling homework on Spelling Shed linked to the spelling patterns they are learning in class. In addition, the children should continue to learn the National Curriculum spelling lists which were given out at the start of the year. Children are expected to learn one column of spellings per half term and will require help and support at home to ensure the children achieve well. Ideally this should happen weekly – little and often – to enable the children to master the spelling of all of the words. 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)
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.
All year 3 and 4 children will be swimming this term.
Class 5 - swim on Mondays
Class 6 - swim on Tuesdays
Class 4 - swim on Thursdays
We also come to school dressed in our PE kits on Fridays, as we have a focus on keeping active and healthy. Prepare for an active and enjoyable day of learning!
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.
Homework continues to follow the same pattern as last term.
- Times Tables Rock Stars
|English||- Spelling Shed||Monday||Monday|

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 speak with your child’s class teacher.
Thank you for your continuing support,
The Year 3/4 Team.
Mrs Cunniffe/Mrs Garratt (Class 6), Mrs Mace (Class 5) and Mrs Wadsworth (Class 4)
