In year 3/4 we have Saturn Class, Earth Class and Mercury Class.

Long Term Plan 2021/2022


This term we will be focusing on place value: ones, tens, hundreds and thousands. We will be looking at numbers using concrete materials at first and then moving onto pictorial and abstract representations.

English - Writing

We use talk for writing in English to teach writing, using various fiction and non-fiction texts. This process goes through several stages, enabling children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic orally, before reading and analysing it, and then writing their own version. 


English - Reading

We use VIPERS in reading lessons and our current book is Tuesday by David Wiesner.

Project - What is the purpose of the Arts?

Art and Music

This term our topic is Art and Music and we are focusing on the big question 'What is the purpose of the Arts?' and linking this to our core values of respect and trust.

We will be looking at the work of Andy Warhol and Georgia O'Keefe in Art and Aretha Franklin, The Chieftains, The Dubliners and Benjamin Britten in Music.
