Mrs Duffy and Mrs Long's Class



                         to Y4

We are looking forward to a great year!

It was lovely to see so many parents at 'Meet the Teacher'. For those unable to attend, we have attached a Powerpoint at the bottom of this page containing useful information. If you have any further queries, either pop into school to see us or email:                        


Our topic for Terms 1 & 2 is Tomb Raiders and we will be learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. There are lots of exciting activities planned to support our learning - look out for the pictures in our photo album.




During terms 3 and 4, our topic will be Journey of a Raindrop. We will be learning all about rivers and the journey water makes. This will also include the main features in the water cycle. 

Our school trip this term will be to Wessex Water Treatment Plant on 20th and 21st of March and letters will be sent out closer to the date.

Please see the Curriculum Jigsaw in the documents section at the bottom of the page for the other areas of the curriculum that will be covered this term.



This term our new topic is Britain in Stone. The children will learn all about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age and the impact it had on Britain.

During Term 6, the children will have the opportunity to visit the Iron Age round house at St. Fagans as well as viewing a range of different buildings through time. This will give the children the opportunity to make comparisons between different time periods.


Our Collective Worship reflection topic for this term is Courage.



As well as the fortnightly spelling lists that the children will bring home, we are also focusing each term on10-12 of the Statutory Y3/4 Spellings.

For Term 5 the words are:

occasion occasionally naughty knowledge experiment experience accident accidentally various strength possess possession

Activities to practise these words can be found on the attachment below.
