Termly Learning Focus


Dear Parents and Carers,

We hope you have all had a lovely summer holiday. We look forward to welcoming the children back into school and catching up with their latest news. It is hard to believe that the children are moving into Year 4 already! It looks set to be a great and busy year, with lots of exciting and interesting learning. We will be working towards the national multiplication test later in the year as well as the fantastic Ilam Hall residential trip!

In our first term, we will continue to build on all of our hard work from Year 3. Lessons will continue in the same familiar structure to what the children have always been used to.

In Literacy we will be writing a narrative based on the book ‘Float’. In Maths, we will refresh our understanding of the number system through our learning on place value and will then secure our understanding of the formal methods for addition and subtraction.

Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:







All Living Things


Animals: Medieval Art


Tag Rugby

The Internet

How can you help with your child’s learning in school and at home?

  • This term we would like you to use the internet to research and find out about two different mountains in Europe, perhaps you could create a poster or fact file to display your information?
  • Daily reading at home remains an important part of your child’s learning and is essential if your child is to progress across the curriculum. Reading journals must be in school every day so adults can use them to record when they read with the children. This year your child will be exploring the library. More information will follow later in the year. Homework engagement will be checked every Friday by an adult in their class. Homework this term will continue to just be Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Reading 3X a week.
  • PE will take place on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Children have outdoor PE on a Monday and indoor PE on a Tuesday. Our PE uniform requirements are as follows:

 Indoor - navy or black shorts (navy or black joggers if cold), white t-shirt and trainers

 Outdoor - navy or black joggers, white t-shirt, sports jumper and trainers.

Children need to ensure that they are in full school uniform with black shoes not trainers on all other days. Please can I remind you that children should not be wearing jewellery into school other than an ear stud which must be removed for PE sessions.

  • Please ensure that you have provided the school with any required medicines for your child such as inhalers or Epi-Pens which are in date.
