Year 3 and 4 - Blwyddyn 3 a 4

Welcome to our Class Page!
Croeso i'n Tudalen Dosbarth!

Summer Term 2024 | Tymor yr Haf 2024


It’s time to take a walk on the wild side! Blwyddyn 3&4 will be exploring everything from creepy crocs and amazing alligators to poisonous plants and bold beasts, as we begin our new topic...

Some things we will be engaging with during the summer term: 

  • Writing stories based on predators and prey.

  • Creating newspaper articles about endangered animals.

  • Debating the argument of whether animals should be left in the wild or kept in captivity.

  • Creating 3D models of predators using a range of recycled materials.

  • Exploring predators around their world and their place of origin.

  • Taking part in different sporting challenges, such as running, jumping, throwing and catching, then comparing our performance to different predators.

  • Exploring food chains, using ICT to produce flow diagrams of different food chains.

  • Focusing on plants and the environment and taking part in our own growing and planting.

  • Investigating how water travels through plants in science, and if temperature has an effect on this.

  • Creating animations to accompany our stories using green screens.

  • A focus on division, time, shape, symmetry and fractions in maths, as well as on-going times-tables practise. 

  • Exploring different animal habitats around the world, looking at different continents. 

  • Engaging in coding using microbits.

Further Information


  • Homework tasks will be set weekly and will be sent home in homework books every Friday. Homework is to be returned the following Wednesday.

  • Termly spelling words will also be sent home at the start of each half-term for a test every Friday.

  • Times table tests will take place every Friday and learners are encouraged to continuously practise their times tables at home.

Reading Books

  • Reading books and records can be brought to school daily and will be returned home every evening. Reading records need to be signed and dated when learners have read.

  • Learners have the opportunity to read independently every day in school and with an adult throughout the week. Learners are encouraged to read every evening (even just for 10 minutes) as this will have a great impact on their progress.



  • PE will take place every Monday. Pupils are asked to arrive to school wearing their PE clothes.


  • Learners are encouraged to bring water bottles (containing only water) to drink throughout the day and a healthy snack, such as fruit, for breaktime.
