Year 3/4 Staff:

We are very lucky in the Y3/4 class to have the following staff to support and help the children in their learning:

Mr Goodwin and Mrs Agnew: Y3/4 Teachers.

Mrs Lycett: We are really lucky to have to have Mrs Lycett who will be supporting and leading children in their learning. I know she will be a fantastic addition to the team!

Mrs Craven: It will be brilliant to have Mrs Craven in on a Wednesday afternoon. She will be teaching the children French.

Miss Dudley: We are fortunate to have Miss Dudley with us in Autumn and Summer terms this year during her Schools Direct Training.


P.E Sessions:

During the winter months children will need to make sure they have the right clothes and footwear for all weather. It is likely they will still be outside in the lead up to Christmas and will need to bring appropriate footwear. PE kits are to be brought into school on a Monday and left in class for the whole week in case PE sessions change due to the weather. 

Wednesday PM:

With NWSportsCoaching and include a variety of different team sports during the Autumn term.

Monday PM:

A mixture of team sports and indoor and outdoor games with Mr Goodwin (weather dependent)


We are lucky as we will now be having weekly ‘P type’ (Plastic) brass lessons which will now take place on a Friday morning. It is essential that the children bring in their instruments every week on a Friday and practise their brass instruments at home every week ready for the next session.

Homework Explained!

Creative Learning Projects:

These will be ‘creative project’ based on topic work taking place in the classroom and will be handed out every two – three weeks to give children enough time to do a good job! These missions are aimed to give children more time and more say in how they present their homework. Each child will be given a personalised Learning log that will include their mission brief, options on how they can present their homework and the date it is due in. We will NOT be writing corrections or comments over their homework in order not to ruin their beautifully presented work, however, will write comments and award merits on a ‘mission de-brief sheet’ in the back of their learning log.

In my experience, children seem to prefer these types of homework and henceforth produce some high quality work.

Literacy Homework:

SPAG based homework based on what they have been learning in class. This will involve a focus on either punctuation or grammar sentence / word level activities.

Weekly Spellings:

10 spellings handed out weekly on a Friday and expected back in on the following Friday showing they have practised at least 4 times during the week. These spellings will be tested on a Friday.


Maths Homework:

This will also be handed out on a Friday and expected in the following Wednesday. This might be a worksheet type activity or problem-solving question related to maths work they have been undertaking in class. In addition, the children in Y3/4 class are expected to be regularly logging onto Mathletics and ideally achieving 1,000 points per week – this equates to roughly 30 minutes work.

Homework Club:

We know how busy home life can often be and how hard it is to squeeze time into complete homework each week. Because of this, we will run a weekly lunchtime homework club on a Friday in the Year 5/6 class with Miss Ramage for children who need extra time and/or support in completing their homework.
