Y3/4 - 3F

Welcome to Year 3/4:


Meet the team:

Mr. S. Firth - Class Teacher,

Mrs K. Stokes - Learning Support Assistant

Mrs D. Mawdsley - Learning Support Assistant

Our Classroom:

Every class at Pinders Primary School has adopted a class book. In Year 3/4, we have adopted the book Sword In The Stone and have used the ideas in the book to transform our learning environment into the Kingdom of Camelot.


Autumn - Stone Age to the Celts

Spring -  Wider World.

Summer - Ancient Greece.

Home Learning:

Home reading: Your child will be issued with a home reading book and reading record book. This book should be read daily and changed weekly. It is also important that this book is brought to school daily as your child will also read their book with Mr Firth regularly.

Read and Respond: This year, school will be starting Read and Respond lessons. Each week your child will be issued with a chapter of a text to read. It is of critical importance that your child reads this before our Read and Response lesson, otherwise they will be unable to access the lesson.

Times tables:

  • By the end of Year 3 children are expected to know their 3, 4 and 8 times tables along with their 2's, 5's and 10's which they learnt in Year 2.
  • By the end of Year 4 children are expected to have learnt all their times tables from the 2's to the 12's.

Maths and English homework: Homework is given out on a Thursday and is due on back in school by the following Wednesday.

Spellings: Each week children will take home 10 spellings to learn for the following week. They should use their spelling dictionary to learn these words at home.


Children are expected to bring their PE kits on a Monday and take them home on a Friday. Whilst we will have regular PE slots, children should still have their kit in school at all times.
