Daisy Class - Year 3 & 4

Welcome to Daisy class with Mrs Mullett and Mrs Timmins. 


Key days

PE Days: Children will need their PE kit on Wednesdays and swimming kit on Fridays.



  • Reading -please hear your child read aloud daily at home; this is just as important as independent reading. Remember to sign your child's reading diary.
  • Maths is set on Thursdays and due in the following Tuesday
  • Spellings are set every Thursday and are tested on a Thursday

Summer Term Project

In the Emperors and Empires project, your child will learn about the growth and decline of the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. They will discover the absolute power of the Roman emperors and study the hierarchies of Roman society and the Roman army. They will study the first invasions of Britain in 55 and 54 BC and the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 43. They will learn about Boudicca’s rebellion, Hadrian’s Wall and the Romanisation of Britain, including how Christianity came to Britain and investigate the legacy of Roman Britain in their local area.


Summer Term 1 Science

In the Plant Nutrition and Reproduction project, your child will learn to link plant structure to function and identify plant parts associated with water transport and reproduction. They will build on prior learning, naming and describing the function of different parts of flowering plants, including the roots, stems, leaves and flowers. Your child will observe fibrous roots and taproots and investigate how water and nutrients are transported in plants. Your child will create the life cycle of a flowering plant and learn the parts and functions of flower parts. They will ask scientific questions about pollination and research to find the answers. They will learn about seed formation and dispersal and identify how the structure of seeds aid dispersal.


Summer Term 2 Science

In the Light and Shadows project, your child will learn that light is a form of energy essential to life on Earth. They will learn that dark is the absence of light and that the Sun is Earth's main source of light and heat. They will identify light sources and reflectors and discuss their differences. They will investigate materials to discover which are reflective and which are non-reflective. They will use their results to identify the qualities of reflective and non-reflective materials and discuss the need for reflective materials in everyday life. They will learn the importance of staying safe in the Sun and investigate sun creams. They will learn about shadows and how they change shape when a light source moves. They will investigate whether transparent, translucent and opaque materials cast shadows and discuss their uses. They will ask scientific questions about light, reflectors and shadows and research to find the answers. They will complete their learning by investigating how shadows change during the day.

Spring Term Project 

In the Rocks, Relics and Rumbles project, the children learnt about the different layers of the Earth, including plate tectonics and their potential effects on the Earth's surface. They investigated different types of rock to learn about their uses and properties. They also learnt about the formation of fossils and about the work of Mary Anning. They had the opportunity to use maps to learn about the lines of latitude and longitude and a compass to learn about the cardinal and intercardinal points, they even had a go at making their own compasses in science! They also learnt about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis and the long and short-term consequences that these can have. 


Spring Term Science 

In the Forces and Magnets project, the children learnt what forces are and what they do. They learnt about pushing and pulling forces and sorted different actions into pushes and pulls. They also identified and explained contact forces (friction) and non-contact forces (magnetism). The children found out about magnetic attraction, repulsion and magnetic fields and investigated which objects were magnetic, which helped them understand magnetic properties. To end our science project, the children had a go at making a compass and were amazed to see the needle point north! In addition, for British Science Week in March, the children researched what happened to the dinosaurs and created amazing double page spreads using the information they found, which linked to our learning about fossils in project. 

Autumn Term 1 Project

In our Through the Ages project, your child will learn about three different periods of British prehistory: the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. They will discover terminology relating to time and sequence dates to make a timeline. They explore the changes to people, homes and lifestyle throughout the different periods and investigate examples of prehistoric settlements, monuments, burials and artefacts in detail. They will also study how technology improved over time, including how the discovery of different metals changed the way that people lived.
