Puffins - Year 3 and 4

Welcome to Puffin Class!


Hello, my name is Mrs. Palfrey and I am Puffins class teacher!


Our teaching assistants are Mrs. McDowell, Mrs. Merchant and Mr. Jones teaches us P.E. on a Thursday.


In English, we are writing our own non-chronological reports, learning how to write a formal letter and  exploring mystery and suspense stories. 

In maths, we are looking at multiplication and division and measurement 

 This term in science we will be learning about living things and their habitats. We will be exploring a variety of ways to identify, sort, group and classify living things. We will learn how animals are split into 'vertebrates' and 'invertebrates' and begin to consider the differences between living things within these classifications. We will use and create classification keys to group, identify and name living things from the local habitat and beyond. This unit also introduces us to the idea that environments are subject to human-made and natural changes, and that these changes can have a significant impact on living things. Throughout the unit we will work scientifically by gathering, recording and presenting information in different ways.

In history this term we will be learning about The Romans. We will learn about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain at the time and the legacy it left us.

PSHE/RSE: Dreams and Goals

R.E.: What do Christians learn from the creation story?

Homework will be set on a Friday and will include weekly spellings and an additional learning task. Spellings and K.I.R.F.S will need to be learnt weekly and the tasks completed and handed in by Friday of the following week at the latest.  

Additionally, children need to be reading frequently (ideally daily) and consolidating their mathematical skills on Times Table Rock Stars and Mathletics each week. Please have a look in the weekly home communication section for details of each week's homework.     

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Kind regards,


Mrs. Palfrey
