Our Planet: Life at Chester Zoo

Why is Chester Zoo important for plants and animals?

In Y3/4 Hedgehogs, that is what we plan to find out this term as we explore the history of Chester Zoo, their work on conservation and tourism at the zoo.

We will be trying to asnwer this question through our science, history, geography, art and design. We will be exploring what plants and animals need in order to survive and how Chester zoo helps with this.

English: This term, we will be exploring non-chronological reports on endangered species as well as explanation texts.

Maths: In maths, we will be looking finishing multiplication and division before moving onto fractions. 

Science: In science, we will be looking at the functions of plants and what they need for survival before moving onto light. 



Year 3/4 Staff:

Mrs Croft: Class teacher. 

Mrs Hislop, Mrs Lawes and Mrs Stephenson: We are really lucky to have a fantastic team of Teaching Assistants who will be supporting and leading children in their learning.

P.E Sessions:

For the Spring term, we ask that children can please come to school in their P.E. kits on P.E. days, which are on  Mondays and Tuesdays. 


Homework Explained

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 be handed out on a Friday and expected in on the following Friday. 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.

Times Tables:

Your child will be given a login for Times Tables Rock stars, an exciting online tool to help them to learn times tables. Your child will have a weekly times tables test on a Friday and we thank you in advance for your support in helping them to prepare for this. 


Your child has a school reading book which is either a colour banded book or a free reading book. They also have an individual reading journal. Please can we encourage as much reading at home as possible and a comment written from you when you can. Thank you.
