Years 3 and 4

This term we have lots of really exciting things happening, that we can’t wait to share with friends and family. This term year 3 will be learning about ‘The Stone Age’ and year 4 will be learning about ‘Dragons and Vikings’.

In year 3 we will be reading the book ‘GLOG’. We will produce a diary entry from the characters view point. We will then move on to look at poetry and produce a class book that shows our development in engaging language. 

This term, in year 4 we will be using How to Train your Dragon as our key text. We will be creating Top Trump cards, writing about our own dragons’ special powers and characters. We will also be studying a range of poetry, applying descriptive techniques to create cinquains about dragons. These will be combined in a beautiful book to display in our fabulous new reading areas. Our final piece of work will be will be a suspenseful split narrative that explores the feelings of two of the text’s main characters, Toothless and Hiccup. 

All topic subjects will be related to the themes above. We hope that there will be lots of opportunities to bring the learning to life with hands on learning experiences. 

In lower Key Stage 2, children are encouraged to read every night and record this in their books. All children have access to a wide variety of books. Children have the opportunity to choose a book of their choice and also a book levelled at their ability. Parents can support their children's learning through reading with them every day, taking children to the local library to read about our topics, and by practicing the times tables with them.  For some information on how to help your children at home, and also to download another copy of your childrens homework, please click here
