Acer Class (Year 3/4)

Welcome to Acer Class

We have an exciting year ahead of us exploring the themes planned. There will be many opportunities for the children to use a number of resources to investigate the themes, each with a different curriculum focus. 

We will continue to work hard on developing our collaboration, reasoning and problem-solving skills.

We will complete the homework set, practise our multiplication tables and find time to read for pleasure every day.

Our themes for 2020-2021 are:

Out of this World – learning about Space.

Tomb raiders – learning about the Egyptians.

Wild Waters – learning about Rivers and Oceans.

This term, children need to have their PE kit on a Monday. Spellings will be set on Friday for a test the following Friday. 

What can you do to support your child?

All children should read for at least 20 minutes every day – this will be recorded in their planners by you or your child.

Times tables also need to be revised to ensure that maths recall is finger-tip quick. Children can continue to progress through their Total Recall badges to ensure that these skills continue to be embedded. :

Here are some useful websites to support your child with their home learning:

Maths (all children have a log in)

SPaG (all children should have a log in)


A couple of good websites that will need parental registration are

There are also many apps and strategies that we use to enhance the learning experience of the children, below is a list of some of the apps we use regularly in class.

Morfo: bringing to life characters both fictional and historical
Puppet Pals: Creating scenes and scenarios to support children’s understanding of historical events
iMovies: Creating and editing movies and clips to record and document their learning
Scratch: Using coding to explore algorithms
