Owls Y3 & Y4

Welcome Owls!


I am so excited to see you all on September 3rd! Our classroom is decorated and ready to go. Waiting for each of you on your tables are brand new pencil cases filled with everything you need.

This half term we will become time travelling historians! We will travel back to approximately 9500AD and learn all about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. We will explore how the people of those times lived, what jobs they had, what they invented and so much more!. We will get the chance to make leaflets, design cave paintings, pottery and our own Stonehenge, to name but a few.

Please complete the highlighted task and one other (2 in total). For the highlighted task of writing a diary, I have attached a document with some writing frames and an example to help generate some ideas. This homework is due on the last Wednesday of term (21.10.20).


Please ensure spellings and timetables are practiced regularly. 

Spellings are uploaded every Friday on Spelling Shed and are available until the following Friday (the day of the test). The spellings have also been attached below. 


Below I have also attached some other useful information such as knowledge organisers and a copy of the Year 3 and 4 statutory spellings. 


Welcome to our class page!


Our class page will be updated regularly with class routines, topics, reminders and key information so don't forget to check in regularly!


Miss Grigg will be your class teacher and Mrs Claxton will be the teaching assistant. 


Remember to also follow @walton_primary on twitter for updates from the classrooms.

Before we come back.

We are all so excited to have you back and to welcome some new children into our school.


Myself and Mrs Claxton would love it if you could send us a postcard telling us about everything you have done, how you are feeling about coming back and if you have any questions. I have attached a template for a postcard which you can print and write on. Alternatively, you can make your own or buy one its up to you! Just add a stamp and send it to school. 


We will share these on the first few days so everybody has a chance to share and have their questions answered. 


We cannot wait for you to see the classroom and to just have you back. Stay safe and see you soon.
