Wesley Methodist Primary School Forth Road, Manchester

Year 3/4

I’m delighted to be teaching in 3/4 and the children have got off to a great start. This half term the topics we will be learning include place value, addition and subtraction in maths, writing a narrative based on Eleanor’s Eyebrows in English, and the children will also be learning about the Stone Age and light.


P.E. is on a Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon. Children must have a full P.E. kit and remove all jewellery.

Reading books

Reading journals are checked daily and new books given out as appropriate. We encourage the children to read as often as possible and bring their reading journals in every day. They will be assessed on their colour band each half term. Children will have their bug  club log in stuck in their reading journals so they can read online too.

Times tables

Year 4s will be sitting the times table test in the spring/summer so they should be fluent, speedy and confident with all of their times table facts to 12x12. In year 3 and 4 we will be doing lots of practise to ensure the children build up this confidence this year, but practising on times table rock stars at home (log in to be found in their reading journals) will help them to be successful in the upcoming test.


Children will have individualised spellings to learn. They will be expected to apply correct spelling rules as taught in class in their writing. They will also have chance to practise their handwriting and can earn a pen licence once they have demonstrated consistently excellent handwriting.


On Fridays one piece of Maths and English homework is handed out, to be returned during the following week.

Children should also try to read a little every day as well as practising their spellings and times tables as often as possible ready for their challenges. There are many dojos up for grabs!

Thank you for your continued support!
