Autumn Term

Welcome Class 2!laugh



The term has already begun and we have started our new topic- The Vikings! We have generated our own set of questions containing all the information we aim to find out by the end of this half term. We will be doing lots of research exploring who the Vikings were, Viking life, Viking invasion and lots more! The children will even get the chance to perform some role play, adopting the role of a Viking.



Class 2 will have daily grammar, punctuation and spelling sessions. This term we are studying 'How to Train Your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell, linking to our class topic! We will begin to explore plot, character, setting and style!

Throughout the term, the children will also have a go at:

  • Fact files
  • Monologues
  • Persuasive writing in the form of a letter
  • Diary entries
  • Writing a short story



The children will have arithmetic starters for every session and will develop their knowledge of times tables. This term will focus on consolidating the children's current knowledge and understanding of fractions, time, mass and capacity. Class 2 will then begin to work on Place Value! There will also be time for TT Rockstars - the children have their logins and passwords stuck in their times table books and are encouraged to practice at home as much as they can.



Other Subjects

Science: Investigating Light

PE: Hockey and Multi-Skills

RE:  Similarities and differences between Christianity, Hinduism and Islam when comparing religious beliefs about God.

ICT: Internet safety

Music: Recorders

Art/DT: Design and make jewellery and shields adopting the style of Celtic and Anglo Saxons

French: Recap basic phrases and vocabulary, identifying the difference between masculine and feminine words.



A Few Reminders

- Please ensure that pupil absence is rung into school before 9am when the registers are closed.

- Thank you for ensuring children are on the playground from 8.45 and in class by 8.50am.

- Please ensure that your child has their PE kit and reading pack (containing their spelling book, times tables book and reading record/book) everyday. 



In Class 2, we would love the children to be reading to an adult everyday, please can you sign their reading records to let us know you have heard them!

- Spellings should be practised at least 3 times a week, with a test on Friday.

- Times tables should be practised at least 3 times a week. In their times tables books, they can pick which times table they would like to practise, or the children can ask for my guidance on this.

- Updates on homework and how this will take place will be provided shortly.


Keep your eye on ‘weduc’ as this has all notices and diary dates you need for the term.

Spring Term 2018




Year 3 and Year 4

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to our Autumn newsletter. We have lots planned for the Autumn term and we welcome your continued help in working in partnership to support your child’s learning.

We ask that children read with an adult at home regularly and that this is recorded in their green reading record. Your child will also read at least once every week with the Mrs Allison, this may be individually or in a guided group, and may also read with Mrs Poole.

Children will have a weekly spelling test and these words will be given at the start of each half term. Children will have chance to practice them during the week but we would welcome your support in reinforcing this at home. Our topics for this term include the following…

History –

The Vikings

RE –



Science - Changing State. Solids, liquids and gases

Art –

Printing and Collage

French –

All about me!


Maths –

Number and Place Value


The children will need to have their PE kits in school and we request that all belongings are labelled. We have specialist sport coaches who will be teaching PE and providing extra-curricular activities. In music, we also have the wonderful opportunity of learning a musical instrument – we will let you know the details of this in a separate letter. Thank you for ensuring children are on the playground from 8.45am and ready to line up and start school at 8.50am.

Our feature author this term is Roald Dahl but we will be looking at several genres of writing including poetry and non-fiction texts.

Please use the green reading record as a home school communication book if you have any questions or information that I should be aware of.

Yours Faithfully,

Mrs Allison and Mrs Poole

Year 3 + 4 Team
