This Summer term we will be starting a new topic about the Vikings, which follows on from our learning about the Anglo Saxons.


As part of our guided reading programme, we are continuing to share a wonderful book called 'The Wild Robot' by Peter Brown. Read the overview from the book below, you will be hooked!


'When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island. She has no idea how she got there or what her purpose is - but she knows she needs to survive.

But as Roz slowly befriends the animals, the island starts to feel like home - until, one day, her mysterious past comes back to haunt her.'


What to expect in Year 3

Welcome to Year 3! In schools in England, Year 3 is for children 7–8 years old, and is the first year of Key Stage 2.  There will be less of a focus on phonics and more emphasis on understanding and learning spelling rules. In maths, your child will start to use the column method and will learn their 3, 4, and 8 times tables.


What to expect in Year 4

Congratulations! Your child is in Year 4. This can be a year which teaches nurture and encourage the feelings of independent thinking, learning and decision making. So just what can you expect if you have a child in Year 4?

They already know the routines for KS2; they have already realised that they have to do homework; they already understand that they are expected to learn a lot in a year; they can dress themselves (mostly!).
