Welcome to Hogwarts Class
Welcome to Hogwarts Class. We are a class of Year 3 and Year 4 children. Our teacher is Miss Pearson and on Friday afternoons, Mrs Organ teaches us RE and SMSC. Miss Boulton and Miss Ballard are our fabulous teaching assistants.
A piece of either Maths or English homework goes out once a week on a Friday and is due in the following Friday.
Spellings for the week are also sent home on a Friday, to learn before their spelling test the following Friday. Please help your child with their practise.
Regular reading is invaluable for children. We encourage the children to take their school reading books home and to read to an adult each night. This reading practise must be recorded in their reading records so that they can receive a Dojo point. Once your child is confident with their book, they can then take the quiz on Accelerated Reader. https://ukhosted49.renlearn.co.uk/2250969/
In English, we will be starting the year learning how to write playscripts, using Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl as our inspiration. We will be discussing this book during our Reading lessons as well as reading it as our class text too!
We will be starting the year learning about place value. Year 3 will be learning about 3-digit numbers up to 1,000, whilst Year 4 will be extending their knowledge of 4-digit numbers up to 9,999.
In school we regularly practise our times tables to prepare children for the statutory multiplication assessment in the Summer term of Year 4. It is expected by the end of Year 4, children are able to recall multiplication facts up to 12 x 12.
Everyone in Year 3 and 4 has an account for timestables.co.uk. Each time you practice your times tables on timestables.co.uk, you earn a medal. I wonder how many you can collect?
We will be starting the year learning all about the Mayan Civilisation. This topic will cover a mix of History and Geography content.
Our Topic fact sheets give you some more information about what we will be covering throughout the topic. They can be seen here:
Topic Fact Sheet 1 - Mayans
Our First Science unit will see us learning about rocks, whilst continuing to develop key working scientifically skills.

Thursdays - All Year 3 and 4 pupils will have Swimming lessons at Evesham Leisure centre. Children will need a labelled kit containing swimwear, a towel, and a pair of goggles (not essential).
