Welcome to Year 3/4
Our current topic is ‘The Vikings’
We wish you all a very happy and healthy new year. It has been lovely to welcome the children back for the new term and to see them so enthusiastic about their learning.
Our topic this half term is ‘The Vikings’ and all things Jorvik! We’ve already learned so many new facts about the Vikings; shared the famous Viking Sagas about the Gods Odin, Thor, Loki and Freya and started our new class story: ‘How to train your Dragon’.
This term we will be learning:
- How to write our own Viking quest stories
- Who the Vikings were, and how Jorvik came to be
- About rocks, and what they can tell us about the past
- More about Hinduism as a world faith in RE lessons
Our new home learning projects have been sent home today and we are very excited to share all the new responses in our first home learning gallery.

Planners and Home Learning
Your child should now have a school planner and reading book appropriate to their reading level. In Y3/4, we encourage the children to read regularly (at least 3 times a week) at home and ask that you comment and sign each time you listen to your child read in the spaces provided within their planner. Planners and reading books will also be used in school daily and signed by the class teacher each week. If there is an urgent message that you would like your child’s class teacher to know about, please ask your child to hand their planner in as soon as they arrive in their classroom.
Maths Homework Mats are due in every Monday
Spellings are tested every Wednesday
Home Learning Projects are sent home with dated labels, our ‘home learning galleries’ take place every alternate Friday.
