Years 3 & 4

This half term we will be starting a new topic called Gods and Mortals.

In maths sessions, will continue to revise the four written methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The new areas we will be learning are based on fractions, area and perimeter as well as some shape work. We will also be working on fluent recall of times table and division facts.

We will take part in art activities linked to Greek vases and printing, designing a toga and sewing it as well as looking at different techniques when using clay.

In History we will explore who the Ancient Greeks were and how their empire changed and grew. We will order main events including the Olympic Games and significant figures from the Greek period using timelines, linking back to areas in History we have already studied. We will also develop our skills linked to making comparisons when learning about Athenians and Spartains.

In science our learning will be based around forces and magnets, revising the states of matter looking at how they can change through heating and cooling as well as revising electricity and circuit making.

We will continue to keep active and complete two PE sessions each week- continue to share your successes with us while we are still learning from home.

We will also be working a range of French, Music and Computing activities throughout the term.


Due to current circumstances, please only bring essential items to school on a daily basis: Reading book, spelling book, reading diary, homework books and a lunch box (if not having hot school meals).

Please provide your child with a refillable water bottle that is taken home daily for washing before returning to school the next day.

Please ensure your child has a coat and any additional items of clothing such as: gloves, scarf and hat to keep them warm outside on the playground. As we are having to keep windows open in the classrooms due to current circumstances, additional items of clothing under school uniform may be necessary for keeping your child warm at school.
