Summer Term

After a lovely Easter break, summer term has arrived in Holly Class. Children are already busy researching and learning about the Maya Civilisation. Ukulele lessons have gone off to a great start!

This term, children will be looking at forces in Science and cooking healthy snacks in DT. PE will be striking and fielding skills. Our literacy will be a mix of recounts, explanantion texts and narrative (story telling).

In Maths we will be learning about geometry including properites of shape and angles.

Please could we all make a huge effort to help our children to learn the list of year 3/4 spellings located in the back of homework books. I know many of you have made a great start.

Please be reminded that homework is handed out on a Wednesday and must be handed in by the following Monday. PE takes place every Wednesday afternoon.

Spring Term

What a great Spring term! A successful visit to Bristol was enjoyed by the children in Holly and


The term started with a topic titled, Bristol. The children looked at the human and physical features and use of land in Bristol. we looked at Bristol through history and changes that took place. The children studied different land uses in Bristol such as the docks and suspension bridge.

In science we were learning about light and shadows and how light travels in straight lines, bouncing and reflecting off of shiny smooth surfaces. We learned about how dangerous the sun can be and looked at shadows and how and why they change with movement from the light source.

Literacy was a mix of learning about recounts, persuasion and poetry. In maths, children continued to grasp the skills in finding fractions and using money.

DT was such great fun. Children designed and made suspension bridges, evaluating and selling their designs to the rest of the class.



Children created Banksy style graffiti in art lessons.
