Year 3 and 4

Summer Term 2020


Welcome back to an extremely unusual time of year. Throughout this term we encourage our children to continue to complete all of their home learning activities. You can find these here on our year page and on our online learning platforms. Please do not hesitate to contact school if you have any concerns.





As the school term develops, we will post information and examples of the children’s work on the Year 3 and 4 pages of the school website or our school Twitter account.



The units we will be studying this half term are:





We continue to teach from our new ‘Read, Write Inc’ spelling scheme’ which has been specifically created to meet the higher demands of the new curriculum spelling requirements. The children take part in daily 15 minute spelling lessons. Please continue to support your child in learning their words of the week at home based on the spelling  patterns being taught in class.




End of year 4 expectations for English.

Þ I can spell most words correctly. (Please speak to your child’s class teacher about the Y3 and Y4 National Curriculum spelling lists)

Þ I can write neatly, legibly and accurately, maintaining a joined style.

Þ I can use paragraphs to organise my writing although may not always be accurate

Þ I can use fronted adverbials and use a comma afterwards.

Þ I can evaluate and edit by proposing changes to grammar and vocabulary to improve consistency, including the accurate use of pronouns in sentences.

Þ I can extend the range of sentences with more than one clause by using a wider range of conjunctions, including when, if, because, although.

Þ I can use sophisticated conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions to express time and cause.

Þ I can use the present perfect form of verbs in contrast to the past tense. Present perfect tense is used for activities that started in the past but are still true now, or have an effect on what is happening now. My friend Kashaan has lived in this town for five years. We have been best friends all that time

Þ I can use inverted commas accurately.

Þ I can use the possessive apostrophe accurately in words with regular and irregular plurals e.g. girls’, boys’, children’s.



Author Study

Each term we will be focusing on a famous children’s Author. Our Key Author this term is Roald Dahl







Some of the Year 4 represented our school at Bishop Ullathorne in a History competition. They gave a presentation on Boudicca and won a gift voucher as a prize.

We enjoyed sewing today. We also made some Roman coin purses.
