Robin Year 3/4



Have a fantastic day with your family and friends today! Who will get the most snow? Measure the snow when you go outside (in centimetres), bring in the measurement on Monday and we'll see who has had the most. Here are some ideas to keep you busy today whilst you're playing in the snow:

- Who can make the biggest snowball?

- Can you make a sculpture of your favourite animal?

- Who can throw the furthest snowball?

- Build a snow fort/den/igloo to hide in


Once you've done playing outside, curl up inside and enjoy a nice book. 


Have fun, enjoy your day and don't forget, your home learning is due in on Monday!

Welcome to Robin Class.

Miss Corner, Mrs Bowes and Mrs Langrell are delighted to welcome you to our class page!

Robin Class Information



There will also be a Topic piece of Home Learning that will be given to the children to do at the start of the topic and this will be due in the week before the end of the topic. This will be a larger piece of work that the children are encouraged to do creatively and spend a long time working on.



Throughout the year, children in Robin Class will be tested on 200 High Frequency Words (these are the common words that children will frequently come across in books and day-to-day conversation) and the year 3/4 spelling list. The words that children find difficult will be sent home as well as being looked at in class. We are adopting a range of strategies for learning spellings at school and children should hopefully be able to transfer some of these ideas to home practice.



PE will be on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. This may change at times or extra sessions could be added to the week so it is always best to have PE kits in school all week. Please ensure that children have their PE kits named and that they are weather appropriate i.e. tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts in the colder weather/ shorts and t-shirts etc in the warmer weather. 


Reading Records

We encourage the children to read every day. When you have listened to your child read, please ensure you write this down in their reading records as these are collected in and checked once a week.  We understand that in Robin Class, not all children want to read to an adult but please still ask them questions about their book to practise their comprehension skills and note down these conversations in their reading records as well. If children are reading alone, we encourage them to record this in their reading records themselves.


Children are expected to read often to develop fluency and we aim to listen to every child read at least once a week so they need to have their reading book and reading record in school every day. In order to develop independence, the children are expected to take responsibility for changing their own reading books during registration time.

Throughout this year, we are having a whole class focus on times tables as children need to confidently know up to 12x12 by the end of year 4. If you would like to help your child with this, please find the multiplication challenge sheet (and answers), which we use in class, below.

Attached is a list of all the spellings that children need to be able to confidently read and write by the end of year 4. There are lots of different ways of practising spellings, I have attached some strategies that can be used to help and keep spelling practice exciting. Please let me know if you would like any additional support with this.
