Years 3 and 4

The class has a two year curriculum map so that topics will not be repeated during the time the pupils are in this class. As many cross-curricular links are made as possible and often the timetable may change depending on the topics.

The National Strategies for Mathematics and Literacy are followed, and the pupils are regularly assessed against the standards. Targets are then discussed with individual pupils.

The pupils are encouraged to be independent in their learning and take pride in their work.
Homework is set weekly and is mainly linked to Maths or Literacy learning objectives for that week. We expect the pupils to read each evening and to learn spellings and multiplication tables. Often homework may involve research, and support from parents is valued. Pupils who need extra help with their work are supported in the classroom whenever possible.

Sports Annual Review

Posted on July 6th, 2020

Sports 2019/20

We all know it has been a very odd year and obviously it has affected school life greatly, none more so than in sports with several competitions being cancelled prior to school closing. However, we had managed to compete in several competitions in which we did very well and had had lots of fun.  Our first attempt at gymnastics with a year 1 / 2 team proved fruitful, hockey too, along with football, rugby and cross country. The children’s commitment and willingness to learn new things made it very difficult for me to pick teams at times, producing some brilliant performances and enormous smiles.  The netball team was in a good position in the league and we were all looking forward to those competitions along with many others we had entered. Unfortunately it was not to be which was disappointing but we did manage to get the Gold Award for sport based on the events we had taken part in, had entered for the whole year and what we had in place in school. I have to thank the School Sports Council of Oliver, Lilly, Clara, Caitlin, Henry and Elliot W, voted for by the class, who had to organise and run a lunchtime club, speed stacking, which turned out to be quite good fun! That was the difference between Gold and Silver.



Thank you all for your support this year.

Well done everyone!




Miss Leftley

Home Learning Wb 29062020… Keep going, you can do it!

Posted on June 28th, 2020

Good Evening :),

I hope that you have had a lovely weekend despite the unpredictable weather!

I have attached the home learning menu for this week plus some additional resources that may be useful. Hopefully there is something there for everyone as there is much more freedom of choice this week around the topics/themes the children should focus on. I realise that at this stage keeping the momentum going may be proving challenging so the opportunity for the children to learn about things that they are most interested in may help.

As always, I am available to assist with queries or concerns. Don’t hesitate to email me at Or, if you would prefer to call, then contact the school office.

With Kind Regards,

Catherine King
