Archived Y3/4 Miss Aird (2019/20)

Welcome to Year 3/4

There are 28 children in the class with Miss Aird and Mrs Neil. Mrs Burgess also works with the children on a Monday and Friday afternoon.


Our P.E days are on a Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon. On these days, children will need to bring full P.E kit including trainers to school.

Home Reading

The children should choose their home reading book once a week.  Please can you listen to your child read for at least 10 minutes every day and sign their yellow reading record.

Times Tables

It is also very important that your child knows their times tables (multiplication and division facts to 12 x 12) as they help with almost every area of maths. They can practice at home on Times Table Rockstars or you can challenge them by asking them out of order.

In June 2020, if your child is in year 4, they will be required to complete a multiplication tables check.


The children will be given spellings on a Monday and we will complete a spelling test on a Friday. Even though we complete lots of spelling activities during the week, the children are still encouraged to practise their spellings when they are at home.

Year 3/4 – What We Are Learning About

During the first week back, we have been reading the book ‘Hansel and Gretel’ by Anthony Browne. We have created lots of writing, including a description of the forest and enjoyed designing our own gingerbread house.

Throughout the year, we will enjoy learning about a range of subjects as part of a varied curriculum, including topics such as Stone Age to Iron Age, UK Discovery, Sound and Textiles. In English, we will be reading and working from a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts. In Maths, we will cover different topics, including Number, Fractions, Measurement, Shape and Statistics.
