Welcome to Hazel Tree - Mr Gawne

Happy New Year! Welcome to Year 3/4 - Hazel Tree Class. I hope you have all had a restful Christmas break and are ready to return to school, we certainly can not wait to welcome you back. On this page, you will find some useful information about the term ahead and any key messages that you need to be aware of. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see our class Twitter feed and link to Google Classroom. We love to use Twitter to share some of the excellent things going on in Hazel Tree Class and will use Google Classroom to support learning at home - spellings, homework and useful documents will be uploaded and made available on there. 

I understand that with current guidance and restrictions some of you may have questions or things you'd like to know. As always, it is important that we continue to work in partnership to ensure the very best for your children. If you have any queries or need some support, please do not hesitate to arrange an appointment to speak to me through the school office.

In History this term, we are looking at the question 'What did the Romans ever do for us?' We will explore the legacy of the Roman Empire on Britain including looking at places where the Romans settled local to us and how some place names have derived from the Roman period in history.

Useful Information:


In Maths this term, we will be focusing on extending our knowledge of Place Value and Number from the Autumn term and looking at using the four written methods of calculation. We will continue to look at applying our knowledge to problem solving questions and also look at measurement, length and fractions. 


In English this term, we will continue to extend our knowledge of punctuation and grammar and continue to work on our reading and spelling skills. We like to link our English learning to texts and use these to inspire our writing. One of the texts we will be using this term is Escape From Pompeii where we will be writing setting descriptions and a part of a short story.



In Science this term we will be learning about Light and Shadows and also Plants. We will learn about transparent and opaque objects, how shadows are formed and what plants need to survive; including labelling the different parts of a flower and how pollination can take place.
