‘Aiming Higher’

Year 3 and Year 4

Welcome to year 3/4


We had an exciting start to our term this year as we received a letter from a museum asking us to create our own! The children had to complete a maths treasure hunt in order to find clues. Each clue represented part of the topic. Once we had all of the image clues we discovered our topic was the Stone Age.


Each week we will travel to the past from as far back as the Stone Age to the Iron and Bronze Age. We will find out about tools, weapons, clothing, housing, farming and how life has changed through the ages. This will include history lessons as well as literacy, maths, ICT and art activities. Also in Science the children will be learning about rocks and completing investigations and research. 


At the end of the topic the children will create and host their own museum afternoon for parents and carers to come along and learn all about our Topic. We look forward to seeing you there!

What makes a good museum?

COLLECTION FROM AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION - All after school clubs collections will be from outside the main school entrance so please turn up at the collection time for your child (to avoid having lots of people waiting around outside of the building). The only access point will be through the front gates for safeguarding reasons. No other external gates will be open (e.g. the gates to the line) - this is because our afterschool childcare children have supervised access to our yard and field and it would not be safe to leave other gates open. Please remember to wear a face mask on site where possible and, unless your child is in Y6 and has permission to walk home, we will expect an adult to collect every child. Thank you for your support with this so that we can ensure safety for all.
