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.  


It is a slightly different return to school this year because of the time that we have had apart due to Covid 19.  However, Mrs O'Hara and Mrs Ruddiforth, Mrs Hinde and Mrs Adams are so excited to have you back in school and are ready to get going on our learning journey!


We are looking forward to getting our teeth in the Forest Schools ethos as the weather improves.  Mrs Hinde and Mrs O'Hara have had their Level 3 training and we have been fortunate enough to gain access to an area of woodland that is perfect for practising our forest school skills.



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 some Roald Dahl texts together, particularly The Twits, The Magic Finger and The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me. He is a fantastic author with so many writing skills that we can investigate




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 Forces and Magnets! We will be looking at how magnets work, forces and friction and how magnets can help us to be planet protectors!



In Topic this term we will be working hard to get ourselves back into the swing of school.  We will be working in teams, looking at how to solve problems and building our independence and resilience through Forest School activities and our Jigsaw sessions.
