Neptune class

Our Year 3 and 4 class

Mrs Burnett, Mrs Barnes and Mrs Riggs are Neptune’s teaching team, alongside Mr Dray for Music, Coach Harry and Ms Massey for PE.

Welcome back to the summer term! We hope you all had a restful and enjoyable Easter break.

Our topic for both term five and term six is Traders and Raiders! This subject falls under the umbrella of our whole school summer term key concept of Movement and People. We will be learning about the Viking invasions of Britain and how they affected those already living in here (the Anglo-Saxons, previously traders and raiders themselves). Our Key Concept Question is ‘How did trade and invasion influence British history?’

In Science, we will be learning all about plants. We will look at Sir Joseph Banks; a controversial yet important figure in botany, plus we will be exploring the functions of different parts of flowering plants, their life cycles, focusing on pollination, fertilisation and seed dispersal.

Year 4 will soon be taking their MTC test (in the first week of June). You can use this website to get a feel for the speed of reading, recalling and responding. Year 3 can use it too. Always good to get a head start!

Homework will be posted onto Seesaw. You will also find weekly spellings uploaded to Seesaw on a termly overview. A piece of homework should be completed each week and spellings will be tested on a Monday or Tuesday (there are a few bank holidays this term).

Please continue to read each night at home with your child; your support with this plays a huge part in your child’s progress. Any reading completed at home can be written in the planner and your child can receive a gold sticker for four consecutive reads.

Planners must come to and from school every day and are checked in school each morning. It is the best way to keep in contact with us so please do use them. Stuck into planners will be passwords/logins for: Seesaw, Mathletics and TT Rockstars. Please check the homework as to when any of these tasks should be completed.

PE and swimming are on a Wednesday this term. Please come in wearing PE kits and bring swimming clothing and a towel in a separate bag.

Mrs Burnett, Mrs Barnes & Mrs Riggs
