Sitting in the Sensory Garden, Class 3 enjoyed listening to the class book, The Gorilla who wanted to Grow up by Jill Tomlinson.  It was lovely to hear the windchimes, watch the wildlife and listen to the waterfall.

Our Class Noticeboard


Homework books

Spellings and maths homework will be added to these books on a Friday each week and the children will bring the book home that night.


Books should stay at home during the week, so the spellings can be revised and maths completed with support at home.


A spelling test is held each Friday morning, which is recorded in your child's spelling exercise book at school. You will see their score in an 'I've achieved...... this week' sticker in their homebook books.


Maths homework will be viewed but not marked. Any misconceptions or struggles with it will be picked up in class time, as the work set is generally an extension of class work that week and the children will have encountered similar challenges then.  The homework for maths should be seen as an opportunity to practice and consolidate previous knowledge learnt.


The children will also receive an optional menu from which to choose a creative homework project.


PE will be held every Monday afternoon. Kit should always be in school.

National Times Tables Test - June 2020

The National Curriculum requirement is for all Year 4 children to be able to recall instantly all the times tables up to x12 by June that year.


National Test preparation help at home (for both Year 3 and 4 children - the sooner they can master instant recall to x12 the better!)




When practising allow the full 6 seconds to pass, then a new question will appear.  Do not hit enter after answering.  This allows children time to correct their answer if needed.

For further practise try these:

Remember to send in signed reading records everyday.


The children are awarded a green token each time they read at home, this is worth two of the usual house points. It's very exciting for them when these are handed out.


Reading is a life skill and needed for every subject across the curriculum.

Our Half Term Topic is:
