How we learn


In year 3 and 4, we enjoy learning through a wide and varied curriculum. Within our lessons, we  value the importance of both indoor and outdoor learning and ensure activities are designed to develop and challenge the children at their own levels. We realise the importance of trips, visitors and hands-on days within the school and always seek to provide the best experiences to enhance the children's understanding of the topics. 

In order to further develop learning characteristics, we are hoping to run a three day residential at Hill End for the year 4 children in April.


Our school day 

In the morning, children take part in guided reading, English and maths activities with the afternoon being used to focus on the foundation subjects. We also use Times Tables Rock Stars to help with our times table recall and class Dojo to share our learning.

We are time travellers 

This term we have been learning about Women who Changed the World. 

We have found out about lots of interesting people who showed great determination to make a difference. Some of the people we found out about were: Wangari Maathai, Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole, Rosa Parks, Emmeline Pankhurst and Jane Goodall. 


We also shared our learning with our parents in our first Year 3 and 4 assembly. 


In Design and Technology we made our own Christmas stockings. We were very proud of them!

We are invaders 

This term we have been learning all about the Vikings and how we know about them. We were very lucky to have a visit from History Off the Page and found out about all the different things that Viking people did and believed. We also had a go at being an archaeologist and found artefacts from the Viking time.
