Class 4

Welcome to Class 4 with Mrs Thornton and Mrs Andrews. We are a Year 3 class with 30 children. 


This year we are following the new curriculum through exciting topics such as; Predator, Tribal Tales, Mighty Metals, Traders and Raiders, Tremors and Misty Mountains. 

This term we are taking a walk on the wild side in our topic Predator! Find out who's coming to visit...is it an bug-munching lizard or an eagle eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it? We will be writing about our favourite predators through a range of media, using what we know about the best of the beasts to create our own ultimate predators and exploring the food chain. 


Meet the staff ~ Mrs Thornton, Mrs Andrews, Mrs Preston (Monday afternoon), Mrs Bonsall (Tuesday afternoon), Mrs Gilbert (alternate Thursday Afternoons).

Our Learning Environment


Important information


Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. Please make sure that the correct PE kit is in school on these days and that all jewellery has been removed.



Our homework is given out on a Monday and must be handed in on a Friday. There will be Maths and Literacy homework each week, and a Topic Project to be completed throughout this half term.



We will endeavour to hear children read as often as possible to develop and nurture this important skill. Please ensure that reading books come to school every day to help us with this process.
