Welcome to Hazel Tree - Mr Gawne


Welcome to Year 3/4 - Hazel Tree Class and Happy New Year! I hope you have all had a restful Christmas break with your family & friends and a big thank you for the generous cards, gifts and messages. They were very much appreciated.  

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. 

We are set to have another great term and have some really exciting things planned and lots of new things to learn.

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 telephone, arrange an appointment to speak to me through the school office or I am around at the end of each day.

In Geography this term we will be looking at the question 'How has Warrington changed over time?'.  We will be learning about our local area, how Warrington has become the town it is today and look at how Chapelford village has been built in place of the old Burtonwood Airbase. This will also support our work in History where we look at Why RAF Burtoonwood is / was important to Warrington. 


In History this term, we are looking at the enquiry question 'Why is RAF Burtonwood so important to Warrington?'. We will study the airbase that was at Burtonwood, the role it played during WWII and the impact of WWII on Warrington.


Useful Information:


  • Remember to read for at leat 10 minutes a day.  This could be your school book, own book, newspapers, comics, shopping lists!  

Times Tables: 

  • Children should try to use TTRockstars and https://urbrainy.com/mtc regularly at home to help with their recall of times tables. Children in Y4 are tested on all of their time tables up to 12x12 in a multiplication check at the end of the year. 


In Maths this term, we will be continuing with our work on the four calculations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and applying these into different problem solving scenarios. Lot of our work on division will be very practical based and will link to work on the times tables also. Later in the term we will be looking at perimeter, area and will begin our work on fractions for the year. 


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 The Lion and The Unicorn by Shirley Hughes that links in nicely with some of our history work to further our understanding of WW2.

In Science this term we will be finishing our work on Electricity before starting our unit of work on States of Matter. This will give us a good chance to retrieve our knowledge of materials and their basic properties / uses from KS1 before our extending our learning by looking at solids, liquids gases and The Water Cycle.
