Ancient Egyptian Day


This term our topic is 'Anglo Saxons'. We will be learning about where why and how the Anglo Saxons came and how lived using a cross curricular approach. Subjects linked are: English, DT, Art and Geography. 

We are hoping to use another History workshop to engage the children this term. We will let you know when we have an update.  



Our topic this term is States of matter. The children will learn about solid, liquids and gases. They will compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases. Observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C). And identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature

Please ensure fully named PE kits are in school.

Useful Websites



Please find your child's log in details in their Reading Record.  If you have any questions, please come and see us.


Purple Mash

https://www.purplemash.com/cranborneen6 can 





This term we are focusing on the following topics:.

  • multiplication 
  • division
  • fractions
  • measures
  • problem solving
  • properties of shape
  • geometry

How can I help my child?

Ask your child to explain to you what they have done during the school day.  Ask your children to pretend to be the teacher and explain the methods that they have learnt in class.  Please look on Purple Mash and Mathletics for tasks that will support your child's learning.  

Mental fluency 

 Helping your child with their mental fluency is the most effective way to improve your children's skills.

Please ensure you are helping your child by asking them questions on the following topics:

  • Rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000
  • Halving numbers - even tricky ones such as 72 
  • Doubling numbers 
  • Adding 
  • Subtracting
  • Telling the time




In the summer term, all children in the UK will be sitting a government timetable test. They will be expected the know all their multiplication facts ( times tables) up to 12 x 12 and recall these at speed. The test will be on the Ipads and they will have 5 seconds to answer the questions.

Please support your child by practicing regularly home. Each week we will be focusing on a different multiplication table and every Friday the children will be doing a test based on their tables they have learnt so far.

We will be sending home the children’s scores so you can continue to support as necessary.


Working from home

If your child is isolating at home, but well enough to complete work, please see below for their work to complete at home.

We suggest that each day your child should complete the following:

Maths (White Rose), English (Oak academy or Bitesize), Independent reading and a Science task..



Choose one of the following

Click on the link for lessons, starting at week 1.



Use the BBC link to pick your lesson from the day. 



You may like to explore these lessons from Oak Academy.




Click on the link to a sequence of lessons all about Instructions.




Make a poster on Solids, Liquids and Gases. Use the following website to help you. 




Welcome to Spring 1!  Our first English unit will be 'Character descriptions'.  We will be using Beowulf as our core text. The children will be using noun phrases and high levelled adjectives to describe the monster in Beowulf. 

The next unit will be persuasive writing. Again this will be linked to Beowulf. 

Well done to those children who have been given their pen licenses.  We are really impressed with the handwriting in Year 4 so far.  Keep up the good work!



Each week we will send home spellings to learn from the Y3/4 common exception words list.  Please support your child in learning to spell these words from memory.


See below for a list of Y3/4 Common Exception words and the Y1/2 lists.




Helping children to develop a love of reading is our passion at Cranborne.  In order to develop their fluency and comprehension skills, pupils are expected to read everyday for at least 10 minutes (from a variety of texts) and have their reading record signed. These will be checked regularly. 

While the library is out of action, we will ensure that your child has appropriate reading material from our class libraries. 

We will continue to use the Accelerate Reader programme and quizzes in school.



Home work will be sent home on Thursday, to be returned on the following Tuesday.  Your child will be complete:

  • Reading comprehension
  • Spellings (to be tested on Tuesdays)
  • Grammar skills activity
  • Maths skills activity

Please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher if you have any further questions.



School closure

In the event of school closure, all work will be set via the school webpage.

If your child is required to self isolate, please inform your child's class teacher and we will provide work for them to complete.
