Year 3/4

Welcome to Year 3 and 4


Teacher: Mrs Hanna


Teaching Assistant: Miss Hillman


This Term:

In the Invasion project, your child will explore the effects of the Roman withdrawal and the chronology and geography of subsequent invasions. They will study the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in detail, examining their reasons for invading, their settlements and their everyday life. Your child will also look at monasteries and the Anglo-Saxon legacy. They will consider how we know about life in this period and investigate the Sutton Hoo ship burial. They will learn about Athelstan, an Anglo-Saxon king, and what happened after his death, before ending the project by learning about the Norman invasion of 1066.


Our key text this term will be The Saga of Eric the Viking by Terry Jones 

All our history, geography and literacy work will be based around this topic. We will also be looking at art projects relating to this as well. 

Our days will also be filled with science, RE, PSHE, PE, computing, phonics/spelling/grammar, music and French! 

I will provide children with all the equipment they need for the classroom, so please do not send in pencil cases.

For those children in year 4, towards the end of the year there will be the Multiplication Tables Check, so we will be making sure that the children are confident with their multiplication and division facts to 12 x 12.

At the moment our PE day is going to be on a Friday, so please make sure you are wearing appropriate clothing to be outside. PE kit should be shorts/joggers/legging in black, dark blue or grey, with a white t-shirt and a jumper/hoody in black, dark blue or grey. For forest school, water proof coats and trousers will be required. Children should be wearing trainers for outside sports and have welly boots for forest school. 


Swimming will be on Wednesday morning. Please ensure your child brings their swim kit to school. They will also require a swimming hat, googles are optional but recommended.

Please make sure that your child has a water bottle in school and an appropriate snack for break time.
