Year 3/4 - Arctic Wolves

Article Thumbnail Image

Welcome to our mixed Y3/4 Arctic Wolves class! 

Hello, I’m Helen and I am currently to be teaching Arctic Wolves class, along with Amber, at Parklands Educate Together.

In Year 3/4,  we want the children to take ownership for their learning and so our curriculum is active, meaningful and enriching. The children will learn through a series of well-planned and sequenced lessons to engage them in a broad range of learning opportunities.

This year in Arctic Wolves, we are covering a variety of fascinating topics including:

·         Term 1: Respecting Rainforests

·         Term 2: Rotten Roman Britain

·         Term 3: Coastal Cousins

·         Term 4: A Tale of Three Piers

·         Term 5: Wild Weather

·         Term 6: Angry Aztecs

Please feel free to look at our topic web as it details the key learning points and vocabulary for our topics this term.

I teach the Year 3’s for maths this year along with Melody and Amber, while Naomi teaches all of the Year 4’s. Splitting the year groups last year was a big success and we look forward to working this way with your children this year.

Our PE slots will be Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child brings in/wears PE appropriate clothing to school.

Home learning is focused on spellings, developing a love for reading, independent research on our topic of the term, diary and creative writing independently, and times tables practices.  They will receive their new spellings on a Friday and have one week to practice these before a test the following Friday.

All children have Times Tables Rockstars logins for them to practice at home.  This website, along with, allows them to be able to practice and improve their knowledge, accuracy and speed when working with times tables.  This will ultimately help them when working through their maths topics in class.

Year 4 have their times tables test in June so we advise practicing those times tables as frequently as possible!
