Year 3/4 Acorns


Welcome to Acorns' Class Page

Welcome to the Acorn's class page.  Here you will find lots of information about what we are doing in school and the different topics that we are learning.  


We are so excited to have you here with us!  A very warm welcome to our new Year 3s. We have got so much fantastic learning to get started on and you can find out more about that below.


Now that restrictions caused by Covid-19 are starting to ease, we are going to be able to start swimming again.  This will take place on a Monday at Dronfield swimming baths. Please remember to bring your swimming costume, towel and optional goggles with you every Monday.



In Literacy this term we are going to be spending some time building up our reading, writing and SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) skills so that we can hit the ground running with our learning.


We will be looking at texts set in Ancient Egypt to fit with our current topic.  Together we will improve our comprehension and inference skills, how word choice is really important, as well as looking at ways that authors write to keep the reader interested.




In Maths we will spend the term investigating Place Value. We will continue our TTRockstars challenge. Who will be our first Rock Legend? Year 4s will be learning about 'it's nothing new' and looking at how number patterns can be used to work out trickier calculations and Year 3s will be challenging themselves to remember all their Fact Families.

Here is one for our Year 4s that goes all the way to the millions

Science and Topic

In Science it is going to be all about Animals and their Habitats. Through our investigations we will learn how animals are sorted by species and how they choose their homes according to what they need! As a class, we will also be making some habitats for the different animals that have our school grounds as their habitats.




In Topic this term we are becoming archaeologists and will be using our deduction skills to find out all about Ancient Egypt.  With Pharaohs, pyramids and sphinxes, there is SO much to discover.


Tutankhamun, Cleopatra, Menes and the scribes, artisans and peasants who helped them to become so successful will all be under investigation.
