Welcome to Kingfishers Class!


Welcome to our class page. Miss Card is our teacher with Mrs Broomhead and Mrs Stansfield supporting throughout the week as Teaching Assistants. We are a mixed class of 17 Year 3/4 children.


Term 6

Well here we are, in the last term of the year. We have covered so much this year but we still have a busy term ahead including our residential to the Ancient Technology Centre to learn more about the Iron Age on 12-13th June. Back in school, we will continue from our trip to find out more about the changes in Prehistoric Britain during the Iron Age leading up to the Roman invasion of Britain in 79AD in our history lessons.


Having learned about habitats, animals and environments last term, science will focus on plants and what they need to survive including the plant life cycle. This will link to our English writing as well through impact of humans on the environment (What a Waste!) and growing different plants in an allotment (The Boy who grew dragons).


RE will focus on the concept of worship including the importance of worships for different religions as well as the practicalities of where and how. 


In PE, Children will be learning to play tennis and well as a little practise for sports day. PE will be on Friday although I would encourage children to keep their PE kits in school all week so we can take advantage of good weather to prepare for sports day.


In PSHE (Tuesdays), Mrs Jennison will be teaching the statutory topic of Relationship, Health and Sex Education information about which has already been sent home detailing the topics covered. 


Children will be consolidating their spelling rules for the year and continuing to learn the Year 3 & 4 target spellings. These can be found below:

Year 3 and 4 Spelling Words











Homework is due in on Monday, and new homework will be set on Wednesday.

Spelling practise game can be found here: 

Making pasta and pasta sauce

Kingfisher class spent the last morning of term making fresh pasta from flour and eggs. They learned that you need 1 egg for every 100 grams of flour. Children experimented making their own pasta including farfalle, tagliatelle and penne! They also made their own sauce using tomatoes, basil, onion and slightly too much garlic.

Thanks to chef Telford and Southern for their help.
