Squirrels - Yr3/4


Welcome to the class page for the Squirrels!


Picture 1


We are a mixed Year 3 and Year 4 Class. Our teacher is called Miss Williams


Well the summer holidays have come to an end and we are now on the count down to Christmas. A beautiful time of the year with lots of different colours as the leaves fall from the trees and the frosty mornings are upon us.  This signifies the end of the year is coming however, this is also an exciting start to the new school year for the Squirrels.


This will be as practical as possible and linking to the work undertaken in class. Homework will be given out on Fridays and collected in on Wednesdays.

Parents can help with homework tasks, but please leave feedback in books to let us know of any particular difficulties or activities you enjoyed.

I have included spellings for each child should you wish to work on these as part of home learning and if you would like a copy of the tackling tables sheet that your child is currently working on then please just ask. 

Please make sure homework is well presented and reflects your child’s full understanding. Home school communication books must be in school each day so records of reading can be written in.



Year 3 and 4 High Frequency word list and list of recommended reading books below.

Autumn Term 1 2019

This terms topic is 'I am Warrior'.



History/ Geography

We will be delving into history and looking at the history of the UK  and Italy during the time of the Romans and their invasion of Britain. We shall be concentrating on the Roman army, gladiators and other aspects of Roman life.  We shall also look at the geographical similarities and differences between Britain and Italy and finally what the Romans brought to Britain.



For the first part of the Autumn term we will be looking at both formal and informal letter writing.  As part of this topic we will be familiarizing ourselves with persuasive writing, the use of commas and embedded clauses.  We shall then move on to historical narratives practising our character and scene setting writing skills.



For the first half of the Autumn term, we will be concentrating on number place value, addition and subtraction methods .  We shall become confident in recognising numbers represented in many different formats and we shall be securing our knowledge of a chosen method for addition and subtraction.




This half term we shall be taking advantage of late Summer/Autumn nature with our topic 'Our Changing World'. We will be looking at different types of leaves, and their functions, deciduous and evergreen trees, flowers and their parts, seeds and berries.  We will be using keys to classify different types of leaves, berries and seeds.



This term we will be learning about how to create a Power point presentation.


Art and Design

This half-term as part of our Roman history topic we shall be exploring the history of mosaic.  We shall be looking at some examples of Roman mosaic art and then having a go ourselves with an autumn theme and symmetrical patterns.



In outdoor games we will be doing team games. In indoor PE we will be doing dance.  We shall be looking at the life at an amphitheatre and recreating the power of the gladiatorial battles through the medium of dance.




In this unit of work the children will have the opportunity to contribute to creating a safe and happy classroom.  They will build positive relationships within the classroom and they will develop skills to enable them to comfortably access help and support for themselves and to help others.



We will be looking at our wonderful world, its creation and fall.  We shall be considering what God must be like to have created such an amazing world and what rules we should live by to look after it.
