Creative Curriculum

We all had a fantastic time yesterday with the animals and rangers from Kimmy’s Zoo.  It was incredible to meet some real rainforest creatures face to face and get to ask lots of questions about them……lots of photographs to follow soon. A big thank you for the rangers for helping us link our learning in such a special way.


This week as Scientists we will be sorting animals into different groups using their features.  We will be learning the words “Vertibrates” and “Invertibrates”.

We will continue to investigate how to sort and classify living things using keys to separate them into different groups!


This term we will continue to use Inspire to investigate a range of maths topics.  Our unit of work this week is multiplication. We are learning how to multiply 2 and 3-digit numbers using concrete equipment and pictorial methods, before using the column multiplication method. We will be applying calculations by solving word problems.

Games to play at home.

The Reading Challenge:

Please remember to take part in our weekly reading challenge.  It’s really easy!  All you need to do it to read for 5 minutes, 5 times a week and record it on your reading challenge slip.  Make sure you hand your slip in on Monday morning to be entered into the prize draw to win a book in assembly on Monday afternoons.  Let’s see if all 4 classes in Year 3 and 4 can reach Mrs Ashford’s target of 75% taking part in the challenge.  WE CAN DO IT YEAR 3 AND 4!!!

My Maths!

We are pleased to announce that we will now be using My Maths for our weekly maths homework.  This is an online maths program that means you can access the homework from your own computer or tablet.  Each activity can be tried as many times as you want to improve your score and there are online tutorials if you need extra help.  Last week you took home your special login codes to have a go at your first My Maths activity. Please speak to your class teacher as soon as possible if you have any trouble accessing My Maths at home.


This term the English homework will be focusing on comprehension questions from a range of text types.  Each week there will be different styles of questions to help us fully engage with different types of writing from non-fiction to instructions and stories.  Please try to answer the questions as fully as possible to show your understanding of the text and please see your class teacher as soon as possible if you need any help.
