Cardinals (Year 3/4)

Welcome to Year 3/4


Our class is called Cardinals.  We are taught by Mr Milbourn (Mon-Weds & Fri) and Miss Ward (Thurs).  We are also supported by Miss Serafin and Mrs Walters. 

PE lessons will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Mr Milbourn or Rising Stars.  Please come into school wearing your PE kit on Tuesday and Thursday.  There is no need to bring a change of clothes.

It is expected that children are reading for a minimum of 10 minutes daily at home and this should be recorded by child or parent in their reading record. Please note only one read per day will go towards the Give Me Ten scheme. If possible, please try to talk to your child about what they have read, exploring characters and storylines. Cardinals class will visit the library on Friday afternoons.

Week 1


We have enjoyed a fantastic first week back in the classroom and the children have worked very hard settling into a new routine and getting used to their new timetable. We have produced some amazing writing, including a recount and diary entries linked to our whole school text 'Lift' by Minh Le and Dan Santat. The children have worked hard practising their place value skills in Maths. We have now learnt about Anglo-Saxon settlement in Britain and the Viking invasion that followed as well as developing some great netball skills in PE. Please take a look at the curriculum newsletter in the above curriculum star for full details of our learning this term. 


Please ensure that all children adhere to the school uniform policy, including PE kit which is to be worn to school on Tuesday and Thursday. 


Unfortunately we said 'Goodbye' to Mrs Serafin this week. She will be missed in class and we wish her well for the future.


Well done Cardinals! Keep up the good work.
