Pegasus Class (Year 3 and 4)

Welcome back to a fresh new term, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Below is our weekly time table of what we will be learning about. 

Weekly time table 8th January


In maths our main focus is:

  • Statistics
  • Multiplication and Division
  • Measurement

In addition to this, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday each child completes five questions on our four operations in 5-A-Day. On Thursday the children do Big Maths, which they love. They have 90 second to answer as many addition and multiplication questions as they can, trying to beat their previous score. Lastly, every Friday we have our times table test. 


In English our main focus this term is around the book, 'The Ice Palace' by Robert Liddell. We will be using this text to write in different genres of writing.


In topic this term we are going to be exploring the theme ' The rainforest'. 


This term in Science we are going to be learning about States of Matter. This includes:

  • Sorting and describing materials as solids, liquids and gases.
  • Exploring each state and investigate how materials change states.
  • To investigate evaporation and condensation.
  • Understand and explaining the different stages of the water cycle. 


Your child will receive a homework task board at the beginning of each term. They will need to do at least one piece from the task board every week. They should also do at least one piece from every subject area. Homework will be handed in every Monday to be checked and handed back out on Tuesday. They will also need to read three times a week and practise their times tables.

In Pegasus Class we aim to listen to every child read at least once a week and change their books when needed. We recommend that children read at home to an adult at least three times a week, as this is part of their homework. This could be a magazine, newspaper, recipe etc. Please can you sign your child's reading record so we can celebrate in class when your child has been reading at home.

Your child will recieve spellings at the beginning of each term. They will be given an opportunity each day to practise them and we also recommend that your child regular practises them at home to ensure spelling rules are embedded. We also advise that if your child is unsure of the meaning of a word, that they look it up.  This will help them develop their vocabulary and extend their writing.


Pegasus class will be having PE every Wednesday morning at 9:30 am with Andy, our PE Teacher. This will cover a range of sports which is rotated weekly, designed to fit around the expectations of the National Curriculum. We suggest as the weather becomes cooler that your child has access to tracksuit bottoms, as well as shorts, t-shirt, suitable jumper and trainers in their PE kit. 

If you have any questions about your child's learning, please don't hesitate to come and see me.  Let's have a fantastic spring term and I cannot wait to see what we achieve over the upcoming weeks.

Miss Tallett.
