Year 3 & 4

Welcome to Year 3/4

Our new topic is...                         A Child's War


A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory.  







Summer Term. Year 3/4 classroom immersive corners based on the popular book 'The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe'

In English, we will be reading and studying a book by C.S.Lewis:
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Immersive Classroom Display


Since the beginning of term we have been immersing ourselves in our class reads.


In each key stage 2 classroom there is an amazing inspirational display that has been taken from each of the texts.  See year 5/6 page for their scene.
