St Nicholas CE Primary School

Year 3/4: Maple Tree

Isolation Work

We appreciate that, especially in the first day or two of isolation, it can be difficult to complete work as you speak with NHS Track and Trace etc. and if your child is unwell, please do not feel that you need to complete the work set, but we wanted to provide our children with meaningful work whilst they isolate so that they are still able to work on the key skills they are currently developing in class.


Here is our suggested timetable for the morning:


9.00 - 9.30: Reading

9.30 - 10.30: Literacy

10:30 - 11.00: Brain Break & Snack

11.00 - 12.00: Maths

12.00 - 12.15: Spelling Practice

12.15 - 12.30: Times Table Practice

Year 3-4: Maple Tree


Welcome to our Year 3-4 Maple

Class Page!


Welcome to Term 4!


Welcome back to another exciting term here at St Nicholas!


In Year 3 Science this term we will be focusing on 'Animals including humans'. We will be learning all about nutrition, the various food groups and what a healthy diet might look like! We will also be learning about skeletons and muscles and why we have them.


In Year 4 Science we will be learning all about 'Living things and their habitats'. Our unit will focus on using classification keys and we will be spending lots of time outside, exploring our local environment and identifying plants and animals that we come across!  


In RE, we will be focusing on the Easter story and answering the following big question: Why do Christians call the day Jesus died 'Good Friday'?


In Geography, we will be answering the big question: What should Cottesmore look like in 5 years' time? We will be learning how to use ordinance survey maps, considering different types of land use and developing our understanding of why settlements change over time. Our final task will be to design our own ordinance survey map of what Cottesmore might look like in 5 years' time and present our ideas!


Our whole-school focus will be on being 'responsible' and our Christian Value is 'loyalty' for this term.


Our PE sessions this term will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays with Mr Alfieri and Mr Thompson. Please send the children to school in their PE kit, prepared for outdoor PE on both days.


For more details on the rest of our learning, please see the knowledge organisers below!


As always, please feel free to get in touch via Class Dojo if you have any queries.


Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Jennings and the Maple class team.
