About Year 3/4
Year 3—The Christian Family
“The Church is the family of God, the people that God gathers in the whole world.
The children will develop their understanding that the Church is the family of God and know that we join this family when we receive the Sacrament of Baptism. They will learn what happens at Baptism and learn about the signs used and why they are used. They will learn about the promises made by parents and godparents at Baptism and develop their understanding of the Sacrament of Baptism.
You could help your children by:
- reflect on what it means to be part of a family
- reflect on what it means to be part of the Christian family
Year 4—The Bible
"The Scriptures are the living Word of God, written under the guidance of the Holy Spirit received and faithfully handed on within the living Tradition and teaching of the Church.”
Religious Education Curriculum Directory
Year 4 will learn that Peter was chosen by Jesus to play a special role in the Church and that Jesus gave his followers a mission – to spread the Good News to others. They will learn that Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to help his followers and that Pentecost was the beginning of the Church. They will learn about the missions of Peter and Paul and about Stephen the first martyr of the Christian faith.
The children will learn that the Bible is a story of God’s love and concern for us. They will learn that the Bible is a living book through which God speaks to us and tells us about himself. They will learn that the Bible is one story told through many different books and they will learn about Moses, David and Jonah as well as learning how to find a Bible reference.
The children will have the chance to:
- explore how the Bible helps us to pray and experience how God speaks to us in the Bible
- participate in a liturgy and experience a guided meditation on a text from the Bible
You could help your children by:
- reading some of the stories the children have covered in class
We will be studying the exciting book 'Seen and Not Heard' in our English lessons.
We enrich our curriculum by arranging the following:
Topic based visits.
Visits to our parish church Holy Apostles and Martyrs.
Visits to our local theatre the Floral Pavilion.
Sports competitions at local schools.
Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.
Please label ALL clothing and belongings.
Physical Education (PE)
Our P.E day is Wednesday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Wednesday wearing their PE Kit. The PE kit includes black or navy shorts, a white T-shirt and a pair of trainers. As PE lessons will largely be held outside, your child may need something warmer (eg black or navy jogging bottoms and their school sweatshirt or cardigan) in cooler weather. For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.
This half term homework will be reading, spellings, times tables and arithmetic.
Y3 - By the end of Y3 children are expected to know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 times tables and associated division facts. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.
Y4 - By the end of Y4 children are expected to know all of their tables up to 12 x 12 and associated division facts. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.
The children are expected to read independently at home on a regular basis (15 minutes per night). They should keep a record in their diary of what they have read. Please listen to them read out loud and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.
Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 3/4 by the end of Year 4. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home. Click the file below to see the year 3/4 spelling list and practice some of the words at home. We have also added the Year 2 spelling list that some children still need to practise.
