Emerald City

Year 3 and 4

Mrs Hunt

Welcome to the Emerald City Class

Autumn 2: In Narnia and Emerald City our topic is “What makes bridges so strong?" 

The topic has a Design and Technology focus. Children will carry out focus pratcical tasks to explore what makes structures stong. They will have the opportunity to research and learn about types of bridges. Children will apply the skills and knowledge they have developed to design and make their own model bridges.

Our science topic is "Sound." Children will find out all about sound; how it travels, pitch and volume. Then investigate materials to see which will provide the best insulation against sound. At the end of our topic they will present their ideas to a famous panel!


Up until Christmas the children in Year 3 and 4 wil go swimming. This takes up their time allocation of PE for the week. However, PE kits should be in school "just in case!" and for any sports clubs. Please ensure PE kit and school clothing is clearly named.


All children have homework books and a task sheet. Each homework task is worth points. Children should aim to complete a total of 20 points each half term. They may choose their homework task for the week from the termly list. Please could alll homework tasks be handed in on a Thursday so we may celebrate homework together on Fridays. Remember to as creative as you wish for each task. See homework link below.


Children have an opportunity to change their reading books everyday. However it is helpful if reading diaries are signed to ensure children are reading, engaging and understanding what they read. Please ensure you listen to your child read regularly and sign their reading diaries.
