Neptune class

Our Year 3 and 4 class


This is our Y3/4 class. The class teacher is Mr Colin Taylor and the teaching assistants are Mrs Paula Head and Mrs Natasha Sparkes (on two afternoons). Ms Cresswell also teaches on a Thursday morning when Mr Taylor has his PPA time.

PE days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On a Tuesday afternoon it is Swimming and on a Thursday Mr Cotter takes PE with the class.

The topic for Term 6 is: “Beautiful Brabourne”. The topic is closely combined with science this term. We will be continuing to study local habitats and the animals which could be found near by.  Alongside this, the children will be comparing rural and urban areas. In Literacy, the class will be using various texts such as Anthony Browne’s book Zoo and Michael Morpurgo’s story Rainbow Bear to support persuasive writing about the environment and conservation methods. Afterwards, the children will be studying poetry based on Shelly’s To a Skylark where they will be exploring similes and metaphors. In RE, the class will learn about famous characters from the Bible, and stories linked to the school values. While in ICT, the class will be creating an opinion poll or presenting data in different formats.
