Year 3/4 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 are taught by Mrs McAuley and Mrs Smith, and Mrs Mobbs and Mrs Arnold. The children will also be taught weekly by Mr Harvey for computing and Miss Fogarty for PE. You can download the current term's learning overview below.

For maths the school is planning using the White Rose scheme of work ( https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ ) 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. Furthermore all children have their own Times Table Rock Stars login - please do use daily. We also have access to My Maths ( https://www.mymaths.co.uk/ ). The school login is: Braunton1 and the password is: tangent296. There are lessons and games for all stages and levels - just ensure that the curriculum drop down menu (left-hand side) is set to 'English National Curriuculum'.

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. Oxford Owl have opened up their online reading platform for all here: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/ . Devon Libraries has a a wealth of ebooks and they can be found here: https://librariesunlimited.overdrive.com/ .

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

Year 3/4 Home Learning - School Closure

Please find below various activities for your child to complete in the event of a school closure. 

* UPDATED * Writing - A sequence of work has been added below for the next 5 weeks. 

Reading - Please read every day and record it in your reading journal. At least once a week, write 3 questions for someone to answer about your book. Remember to make a note of interesting vocabulary as well and use a dictionary to look up their meaning. 

Spellings - Work through the lists below, making sure you can spell all of the words correctly before moving on to the next list. You can practise the spellings in different ways such as rainbow writing, pyramid writing, boxes and in sentences. 

Grammar - Work through the weekly sheets below, completing at least one each week. Use the Grammar Crib Sheet to help you if needed. In addition, select an  activity from the "Pick an activity" selection and complete one of these each day. 

Times tables - Log on to TT Rockstars daily and spend at least 15 minutes playing the games (not just in the shop!). Complete a weekly Soundcheck. 

*Updated* Maths - Work through the lessons below.  Try and complete one a day. The White Rose website has additional support if needed. Follow the link below. 

We have put up Powerpoints that cover the entire year's curriculum so far [Autumn 1 until Spring 5] - each slide has a question and involes your child answering and reasoning mathematically. We have also put up a 'Mastery' booklet that has appropriate challenges for the entire curriculum. 

*Updated* History/Geography - Choose a different activity from the Cross Curricular Topic sheet below to do each week. You can use the internet or the attached work book to help you with the knowledge you need to complete the activity. Each activity is worth some points - how many can you accumulate? Year 4 - work through the Rivers workbook

PE - Try and stay active! These are some activities you can do in small spaces or indoors



Joe Wicks also has a range of work out videos for children on his YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3LPrhI0v-w and he will be doing a live PE session on his channel at 9am every weekday morning.
