Our topic for the first half of term and the beginning of the second half of term is 'Hail Rackham!' Our work will be based on learning about the Romans with a focus on Roman Britain.  The main text that we will be sharing together  is 'The Thieves of Ostia' by Caroline Lawrence.  We will also be writing our own stories based on 'Spartacus.'

Spellings and Homework 

Each child in Year 3/4 has a pink homework book.  Homework is given out on Friday and a sheet will be stuck into the pink book to explain what the homework is.  Homework should be returned to school by Wednesday each week.  This allows us time to check the books and follow up on any misconceptions or difficulties.  


Spellings will also be sent home on Friday and the spelling test will take place the following Friday.


Copies of spelling and homework activities can be found below.

PE days

Tuesday - Elm (Miss Crawley)

Wednesday - All classes

Friday - Hazel (Mrs Berrett) & Sycamore (Mrs West)


The PE days will be amended once the swimming timetable has been finalised.


Children are expected to have their named PE kits in school for these sessions.  As the days are now quite cold it would be useful if your child could also have a jumper and tracksuit bottoms as well as the usual t-shirt, shorts and trainers.  Children should ensure that long hair is tied back, no jewellery or watches are worn and earrings are removed for any PE sessions.  If children need to remove earrings during the day, then they should be able to do this themselves and have a suitable container to store them in.


We are always happy to answers any queries that you may have but we would request that you come to see us after school via the office rather than the morning, as this is a very busy time of day.
