Class 4


Welcome to Class 4

Year 3 display board

In Class 4 you have become part of KS2 and you are expected to set a good example for the children in KS1. You also want to be helpful and friendly to the younger children. In class you should listen carefully to the adults and your classmates so that you know exactly what you need to do. It is important to try your best and ask for help when you need it. You’ll learn to become more independent and take more responsibility for yourself, your work and your belongings. During the year you will learn to join your handwriting, know your 2, 5, 10, 2, 4, 8 times table and always work neatly!

Highlights of the year:

There are many highlights in Year 3 including: Chedworth Roman Villa, Roald Dahl Museum and of course our production. There are lots of opportunities to dress up, try new activities, learn new skills and have fun whilst you are learning. The production gives everyone the opportunity to have a speaking part and we learn to work as a team to produce an exciting, colourful and lively play. At Christmas we join in with the whole school to go to the pantomime in Oxford which is a definite highlight!

Key topics in our class:

During the year we learn about The Romans, Africa, The British Isles as well as lots of other exciting work in the other areas of the curriculum. The Romans are fun to learn about and we have a go at making our own Roman shields. Art covers lots of different areas including painting, mosaics, clay work and mask making which can be particularly messy!

Key documents:

Any important information about trips and other activities will be sent out via “Parentmail”. It is good to check your e-mails every week and make a note of any important dates.

 Useful resources for our class:

Art – old tin soup cans, old shirts for aprons

History – large pieces of cardboard (bigger than A3)

Recommended Books:

In Year 3 we study everything to do with Roald Dahl and his writing, so reading any of his wonderful books is always a good start! We are also encouraged to start reading more chapter books and read these regularly with an adult in school too.

Some of our other favourite authors are:

David Walliams, Enid Blyton, Dav Pilkey, Dick King-Smith, Sally Rippin
