Welcome to Year 3 and 4!
We have five classes in Lower Key Stage 2 and our teachers are Mrs Allin, Mrs Watson, Mr Blake, Mrs Pearce and Mrs Jones.
You will find us situated on either side of our fabulous library, enjoying our learning; having fun, exploring new things and developing as life-long learners. Throughout the year we will be investigating the rampaging Romans, Shackleton’s Antarctica and enterprising Egyptians. It's an action packed journey filled with exciting and memorable learning opportunities.

To see the planning for this year group, please look at ‘curriculum’ in the information pages of this site.
Year 3 / 4 started continued their Egyptian topic by having a visit from Sir Teachalot today. He did as he said he would and taught us a lot! We learnt about when and how the Ancient Egyptians were discovered, where they built their pyramids and investigated what artefacts they left behind.
Did you know that although films show slaves building the pyramids, it was actually the farmers who built them during the 3 months of the year that they couldn't farm the land?
Thank you for the fantastic costumes that were seen. It was a great day had by all and those who didn't think so are just in de'nile'...
Year 3 got off to a stunning start last week with their Ancient Egyptian topic. After understanding where, who, when and why, they dressed like an Egyptian and made collars fit for Kings (or Queens!).
Classes also calculated like an Egyptian by solving the pyramid problem to introduce the idea of square numbers.
Finally, Friday was for feasting like an Egyptian where classes made bread, hummus and tabouli before ending the day with everyone's favourite Tiger Nut Sweets!
After learning how to measure and convert metric measurements this week, Year 3 took to the playground to mark out the real lengths of polar animals. They worked out the conversions before mapping out the animals in groups.
Once they were all drawn, we compared them to our own length by lying along side them.
Did you know you can fit two and half 'Josh's in a walrus!
Year 3 are studying the Iron Man by Ted Hughes as part of guided reading this term. This week we used charcoal and chalk pastels to create the Iron Man from the text description.
Hopefully you can see them when you pop in at the topic celebration evening...
