Year 3/4 W



I hope you have had a fantastic summer break filled with lots of exciting adventures. Now its time to focus on our learning. Over the next year we have plenty of fun and interesting topics to cover such as The Romans, The Aztecs, Volcanoes, Earthquakes and other Natural Disasters and South America. 



In our Spanish lessons we have been learning volando - flying, nadando-swimming, trotando-trotting and corriendo-running. We have been making up our own sentences using the new vocabulary.

This is a reading,writing,speaking and listening challenge. The children have to work as a team to read write, listen and say what the sentences are. The team with the most words spelt correctly wins.

Autumn 1 Topic - The Romans


Our topic during Autumn 1 will be The Romans. We will look at where the Romans came from and how their empire grew to be one of the biggest the world has ever known. We will learn about Julius Caesar, Emperor Claudius and Queen Boudicca and the roles they played during the Roman invasion of Britain. Furthermore, we will understand what made the Roman army so successful and the changes they made to life that are still with us today.



This is a reminder that all items of uniform, including PE kit, must be labelled with your child's full name in order to avoid any items being lost.



Homework will be handed out weekly, on a Friday. Homework will consist of any of the following subject areas:

- English

- Maths

- Spellings

- Times Tables

Homework should be handed in by the following Wednesday. Spelling sheets should not be brought back into school and should be kept at home to practice.


Here are some websites that provide vast amounts of information and learning games that may be helpful to you and your child:




Year 3/4W will have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Please could I ask that all children have their full PE kit in school on these days. Again, please ensure that all items of their kit is clearly labelled.

Home Reading 


Reading books will be changed daily if the reading record has been signed saying that your child has read. Scores will be collected in class for our whole school reading challenge in which we have the opportunity to compete for a mystery prize at the end of each term!

Alongside the website, we also use ClassDojo and Twitter to keep you informed of what is happening at school.
