Children in year 3/4 will use the platform 'sumdog' to complete their homework. We also use sumdog in school to complete mental maths and punctuation challenges. We would be really grateful if you could support your child with logging onto sumdog and reminding them that they will need to access the internet first. By helping them at home 1:1, this will enable them to become familiar with the 'logging on routine' and allowing more time in lessons to complete the questions.

Can I walk like an Egyptian?
Big Idea: Civilisation
Horrible Histories - Awful Egyptians
We have had a fantastic morning watching Awful Egyptians at the Playhouse. We learned lots of new facts and interesting information and particularly liked joining in with the singing, acting and using 3D glasses to watch the second half of the show.
Project for terms 1 and 2
How did we get from stones to shields?
Chronology and changes over time from the Stone Age to Roman era
Welcome back to a new academic year
Welcome back to a new school year. We hope that you have all had a lovely summer holiday and that you are looking forward to your return to school and meeting your new class. Over the course of this term, our learning will focus on our project 'How did we get from stones to shields?' This project will have a historical focus and will look at the chronology and changes over time from the Stone Age to the Roman era. We are looking forward to our Wow Event in a few weeks time where we will visit Cheddar Caves. This will give us an opportunity to delve deeper into a local historical setting and learn all about 'Cheddar Man'
Raise the Roof
We have had a lovely morning singing our Raise the Roof songs to the year 2 classes. This year the theme was 'cool school'. We sang songs that carry messages such as how to keep safe on the internet and how to be a good friend. We finished the morning with squash and biscuits. A lovely morning was had by all the children.
The Savage Stone Age
Year 3/4 joined in with the Uphill Village Scarecrow festival. This year, the theme was 'Horrible Histories' and we linked our entry to our current topic and chose to make someone from 'The Savage Stone Age'. We think he looks great!
