Tag Rugby Festival

A few lucky children from Years 3 and 4 were invited to take part in a tag rugby festival. The coaches who run our rugby training on Wednesday afternoons arranged this event to allow the children to use the skills they have now developed. Our children were, as ever, great sportsmen and women and had a great time. 

Here we are getting stuck in!

Welcome to Class 8 - Year 3/4

Class News

Welcome to our webpage for Class 8!

We hope you find our page very informative, interesting and enjoyable.

In class 8 we aim to be the best class in school.

Both indoor and outdoor P.E. kits need to be in school at all times as we aim to teach P.E. twice a week. We do indoor P.E on Tuesdays.

Our 'Author of the Term' is Michael Morpurgo and our class book is 'Alone on a Wide Wide Sea'

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Axon & Mrs Farrell


Y3-4 Sum 2 18(1)


We are aiming to win the Reading Awards trophy this term, therefore it would be great if you could read with your child five times a week to increase our chances of winning.

Spellings homework will be given out each Monday and will be tested on Fridays.

European Languages Day.

Tuesday 26th September was European Languages Day. We celebrated this across the school and learned all about the language, culture and cuisine of three European Countries: France, Spain and Germany.

Trip to Roman Chester (Dewa)

Years 3 and 4 enjoyed a visit to Roman Chester, known as Dewa at the time. Here they took part in a Roman soldier march round this ancient city. The new Roman recruits were trained how to use their Roman shields to defend themselves from a range of enemy attacks. We also visited a museum showing us what Roman life was like and had the opportunity to visit an archeaological site digging down 2.5m through time.

See if you can spot our Gladiators Miss Axon and Mrs Farrell employing different combat styles. Can you guess who faced being beheaded?

Rugby Training.

On Wednesday afternoons all Year 3 and 4 children have been taking part in Rugby Training lessons. These lessons focus on the developing the skills required to play rugby well. Here's class 8 enjoying one of these exciting sessions.

Science Investigation - What helps plants to grow?

Our lower junior children have all been charged with trying to grow a plant. We have been measuring and recording the growth of this plant and putting the information into tables and graphs to help us to interpret it. Here we our in Class 8 measuring our sunflowers.

The Royal Wedding

As you know, the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took place on Saturday 19th May. As a Church of England school the Royal family holds a special place in our hearts and we celebrated this occasion in school of Friday. Across the school children had picnics and completed activities revolving around the Royal Wedding. We were lucky enough to have the weather on our side for a change too!

Here's some photos of the lovely afternoon - as you can see, some children really got into the wedding spirit.

Burwardsley Residential

Years 3 and 4 visited Burwardsley at the start of the term to consolidate their learning on the Stone Age. Here we entered a roundhouse, made our own woven fences, dug for artefacts like archeologists, and made our very own clay coil pots in the Stone Age fashion. We also went on a habitat walk up Willow Hill where we found signs of badgers, foxes, moles, rabbits and squirrels. The children built their own dens and enjoyed hot chocolate around the bonfire in the evening. A jam-packed fun-filled and educational visit was had by all.

Internet Safety Week

Internet Safety Week was the week of the 5th February and during our Poetry Recital we touched upon living with technology at home and how to keep safe online. Below is a powerpoint with key information on internet safety. We hope you find this useful.

Jack and the Beanstalk

What better way to start our second half term than with an energetic, modern pantomime show.  The children (and the teachers) thoroughly enjoyed the interactive performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. As well as being entertained, we were inspired and children across the school are writing their very own version of the tale. Here are some photos from the wonderful morning. See if you can spot two of our teachers putting on a show with the performers...

C'est fantastique!

In Years 3 and 4 we have been really enjoying our French lessons. We have been learning to say the colours, the members of your family, and the shops you might see in a town, in French. Here is some of our fantastic French work.


Children should be able to complete all homework independently as it is often simply a recap of topics covered in school. If your child is genuinly finding the homework difficult don't hesitate to inform their teacher before the homework is due.


Mathletics is a great programme to use in school and at home. It is designed to develop and improve all areas of mathematics from arithmetic to problem solving. It will be targeted to your child's particular year group and ability. Children can access this at home using their own log-in and can earn certificates each week. The maths class with the most points in a week also recieves the Mathletics Trophy.

Reading Plus Online

Do continue to encourage the use of this at home. It is designed to improve reading fluency and comprehension as well as developing inference skills (which are vital skills for the SATs). Children can access this at home using their own log-in and it will contribute towards a reading award as long as it is signed by an adult in school planners.
