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 'Tell Me a Dragon'.

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

  •  'Tell Me a Dragon' by Jackie Morris
  •  'The Egg' by M.P. Robertson 
  • 'The Snow Dragon' by Vivian French
  • 'How to train your dragon' by Cressida Cowell 


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 The Vikings: Heroes or Villains?

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)
