Welcome to Class 9 - Year 3/4

Welcome to our new Web page.

Our Class Team:

Class Teacher - Mrs Dakin

Classroom Support - Mrs Pollard

Class 9 strive to be the best class in the school!  We are always excited to learn and to be inspirational global citizens.


Maths and English homework is set on Fridays and should be returned by the following Tuesday. 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 genuinely finding the homework difficult don't hesitate to inform their teacher before the homework is due.

Children should read, practise their spelling using the handwriting sheet and learn their times tables every night.  Handwriting sheets should be handed in on Thursdays.

Reading Awards

Reading awards assemblies are held at the end of each half term. To earn a bronze certificate children need to read a minimum of five times each week. Platinums are awarded to children who go above and beyond and even read in the holidays! Help class 9 to win the trophy and read lots at home.

Author of the Term

This term’s author is David Walliams. We are enjoying his story Gangsta Granny in class.

Knowledge Organisers

Below you can see our Year 3/4 knowledge organisers. Here you can find out all about what we'll be learning in our lessons this half term. These will be updated regularly.

Y3-4 Planet KO Winter 19(2)Y4 Animals KO Winter 19(2)


This Term in School

Our current theme this term is the 'How dangerous is our planet?' which we have started by looking at the tectonic plates beneath the Earth's crust and how they can create volcanoes.

We will also be learning about our teeth, including how important it is to keep them healthy.

In Art we have begun to look at how to use tone in our sketches.

With Mr Mullan and our Enterprise project we are looking at the plants of Bangladesh. We will be growing chillies along with our onions and hope to make a curry at the end of the project!

An Extra Member of Our Class

Class 9 have an unusual additional pupil this year. He is rather small and goes by the name of 'Nibbles'. Unlike his human companions, Nibbles is a hamster and is enjoying Class 9 as much as they enjoy him. 

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.
