Welcome to our Year 3/4 page

Rowan, Beech and Holly Classes


Autumn Term 2019 in Year 3/4


In the first half-term our theme is 'Vikings and Dragons'.

We will be using the following books as a stimulus for work across the curriculum:

  •  'Tell Me a Dragon' by Jackie Morris
  •  'Krindlekrax' by Philip Ridley
  • 'The Snow Dragon' by Vivian French


In English, we will be exploring and learning to write dragon poetry, fantasy narrative texts and non-chronological reports.

Our D&T project will be designing and making a dragon with moving parts using pneumatics.

Our artwork will be inspired by Jackie Morris's stunning and entrancing illustrations in her book 'Tell Me a Dragon': we will be looking at using different watercolour painting techniques.

Our history topic throughout the whole of the autumn term will be Vikings.

Our science topics will be 'States of matter' and 'Rocks and soils'.


Music (Rattle & Roll), PE (Mr Bingley), RE (Mrs Parkin), Computing (Miss Smith) will be taught on rotation during PPA afternoons (Week A - Tuesday/Week B Thursday)


An additional PE lesson will be taught by the class teacher.

French will be taught by the class teacher.









General notices:

Please ensure your child has a full, named PE kit in school every day. This includes: navy or black shorts or jogging bottoms, a plain white t-shirt and a pair of trainers (not plimsolls)
