Class Project

I would like you to create a project on Ancient Greece that you can share with the class when we return. It could be about anything that interests you and presented in anyway you like. Use books and the internet to find out all about life in ancient Greece. You could focus on: Greek buildings, Greek democracy, Greek jobs, what life was like for children during ancient Greece or something else that captures your interest. There are many ways you can present your project. It could be a poster, Powerpoint presentation, leaflet or model. If you can try and do some writing to explain what you have done or a story that will go alongside.



  • Continue reading widely at home
  • Discuss what they have read


Do some writing inspired by ancient Greece. It could be a story or factual leaflet all about what life was like. You could imagine you went back in time, what would be different or similar? How would you cope?

Look at some of the year 3/4 spelling words to learn and practise at home.


Continue to learn the 3, 4, 8, 2, 5, 10 times tables (including division facts) 

Help your child be able to tell the time

Continue to practise calculations with the four operations (+ - x ÷ )

3 digit number + 3 digit number (eg 276 + 335)

3 digit number – 3 digit number (eg 736 – 276)

2 digit number x 1 digit number using the 2, 5, 10, 4 or 8 times tables (eg 34 x 8)

2 digit number ÷ 1 digit number using the 2, 5, 10, 4 or 8 times tables (eg 64 ÷ 4)

Our topics for the year are:

Term 1 and 2 - Underneath. During this topic we will be exploring what is underneath us. We will begin by becoming expert archaeologists and exploring how we can find out about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages by looking at what is left behind in the ground. As scientists we will look at rocks and soils before looking at light and shadows. Later on we will begin to look at other things we can find underneath us: from animals that burrow, the importance of worms to the layers of the earth and how the tectonic plates form mountains and volcanoes and cause earthquakes. 

Term 3 and 4 -  European Pioneers. We will learn about the continent of Europe this term. Exploring the countries through the artists and inventors who lived around the continent. 

Term 5 and 6 - Wild. In our final term we will study plants and think about how we can look after our environment. Through looking at fauna in different habitats we will learn about the importance of bees in England and compare habitats in our country to those in rainforests. We will think about the threats to these incredible, essential places and think about ways we can make a difference.
