On Monday 28th November Year 3/4 were all cast back into Ancient Greek times. We learnt all out the Ancient Greek Empire, played a game which is believed to be the first version of Chess, solved a maths problem from the famous Archimedes, fought in a Trojan war and retold the story of Theseus and the Minotaur in a Greek Theater.  We had lots of fun!CIMG7009 CIMG7017 CIMG7021 CIMG7062 CIMG7063 CIMG7068

In Year 3/4 DH this term we have been learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.

We began our topic with an exciting launch day where we were cast back into 449AD. Our guide, Edward, told us all about what life was like as an Anglo-Saxon and he even shared the story of Beowulf! We then learnt how to combat as a Viking warrior and gave a war hero a proper burial.

This term our numeracy topic is based around number and place value; in particular, understanding Th H T and O. We are trying really hard to spot patterns and apply our reasoning in our problem solving. Let’s keep practising our times tables at home and school – they are so important!

We are really enjoying reading our class book this term – ‘How to train your dragon’. In particular, we have really enjoyed learning about different sentences and all of their wonderful, yet important, ingredients! We are all trying really hard to ensure we don’t forget these in our writing.

During the term we will be focusing on team work and friendships. We’ve had a great start and lots of hard work is already evident!

3/4 DH Summer half term 1 newsletter

3/4 DH have been very busy this half term and have all worked very hard.


We launched our topic, Extreme Earth, with a day of crafts. We looked at the structure of the Earth and built collages of the layers.


We then explored volcanoes and how and why they erupt.



Here we are building our own volcanoes and erupting them with bicarbonate of soda and vinegar – very messy!



A big thank you to everyone who created something for our homework project – here are just a few of the amazing things we’ve received.IMG_20170531_083358Feel free to drop in on Reading Mornings if you want to have a look at anything on our display.IMG_20170531_083348IMG_20170531_083409IMG_20170531_083335

Also as part of our topic work, we’ve looked at natural disasters and linked this to our unit of English work on explanation texts.

The children have all been very busy researching how to prepare for a natural disaster and planning how to stay safe during one. They have written some brilliant guides for how to stay safe in the fictional town of Chewandswallow from our reading book, ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’.

We’ll certainly all be ready if there’s suddenly a tsunami of syrup or a tomato tornado in Sutton!

We have also been building our journalism skills and learning about how to write like a reporter for a newspaper. Here are some excerpts of our reports from when a giant pancake crushed Hillocks…

In maths this half term, we’ve begun our unit of work on measures. The children have been applying the skills they’ve developed over the year to measure length accurately and then convert between mm, cm, m and even km.

We’ve also been working hard to learn how to tell the time accurately on an analogue clock – even on clocks with Roman numerals! – and change this into 24 digital time.

Don’t forget to keep practising with clocks at home!

Y3 have enjoyed their first half term of trumpet lessons in music, while the Y4s have been working on their teamwork skills with Mark in PE.

Lots of us have made fantastic progress in swimming, which will carry on into the next half term.

With lots to look forward to in June and July, let’s hope next half term is as brilliant as this one has been!

Year 3/4 Homework!


Try to practise your times tables once a day. Looking for some more interesting ways to do it? Why not make a times tables game? What about a poster of a times table you’re finding tricky?


Try to read something each day. This can be a school book, newspaper, any book at home, or a magazine. Fancy a challenge? Maybe you could write some quiz questions, draw a picture of a scene from the book, or write a summary of what you’ve read. Don’t forget the ‘Fantastic Four’ reading journal!

Reading Journal


Every week, there will be spellings sent home. Please practise and learn these ready for the weekly quizzes.

Year 3/4 Superhero Training Day

Capes and masks at the ready!


We all had a fab time at the Mill Adventure Base testing our climbing, tunnelling, flying and teamwork skills.

The weather was terrible, but it’ll take more than a bit of rain to defeat these superheroes!
