Watch this space for regular updates to find out about our amazing learning!


This half-term our topic is...



During this topic, we will be learning about all things musical. In English, we will be reading The Bear and The Piano, a beautiful picture book by David Litchfield and the children will write there own narratives from the Bear's perspective. We shall also be looking at poetry, song lyrics, posters and information leaflets.  In Maths, we will be consolidating our place value knowledge and our addition and subtraction skills. We shall also begin to develop our statistic skills exploring pictograms, tally and bar charts, as well as line graphs. In this topic, the children will be creating great musical inspired pieces of art, learning songs in different languages, and of course learning all about the history of music and how sound is formed. The children will also continue to learn to play the violin.

The National Curriculum outlines the spelling rules that children will learn in Year 3 and Year 4:

  • Use further prefixes and suffixes and understand how to add them (such as dis– and –sure)
  • Spell further homophones (such as except/accept)
  • Spell words that are often misspelt 
  • Use the possessive apostrophe accurately (plurals)
  • Use the first two or three letters of a word to check its spelling in a dictionary




Please see Year 3 and 4 spelling list below.
