Y3/4 Overview

At Caen we have two Year 3 and two Year 4 classes. Year 3 are taught by Mr Holker and Mr Fletcher and Year 4 by Miss Mobbs and Mrs Arnold, and, Mrs Smith and Mrs McAuley. The children are also be taught weekly by Mr Harvey for computing and Miss Fogarty for PE. The current learning overviews can be downloaded below.

For maths the school is planning using the White Rose scheme of work (  http://www.whiterosemaths.com ) and teachers also use a variety of other resources such as Nrich ( http://nrich.maths.org ) and the National Centre for the Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics ( http://www.nctem.org.uk ). These sites all have free to download resources and materials should parents be interested and all the White Rose Maths materials are free to download. On the Nrich site you can search by maths topic or age.

For reading we encourage children to challenge themselves with the Pie Corbett Reading Spine. Pie Corbett is recognised as one of the pre-eminent educationalists with regards to literacy and he has selected appropriate books for every age group. These can be found on the Scholastic site here: https://www.scholastic.co.uk/piecorbett/resources . Below we have also included recommended reads for each year group - these are all high quality texts that will give your child a rich and varied diet.

If you would like any further information about the curriculum please make an appointment to see your child's teacher in the first instance.


Maths homework is issued Monday-Thursday and will be based on that day's learning. It will be marked in class the following morning. Spellings will be sent home - these will relate to a rule that is being learnt/ re-capped and there may be some additional spellings to learn as well. We also ask that you hear your children read (daily if possible) and remind them to complete their reading diary. For reading and getting it signed at least five times a week children will recieve a raffle ticket for our reading challenge draw.
