Autumn 2018

Welcome to 3F's class page.  We hope you have a lovely summer and we look forward to seeing you in September.  The transition days that we had were a great success.  In September, our research topic will be 'Local History and Geography' which will build on the children's learning last year.  We are planning visits to the local Moravian settlement in Droylsden and Clayton Hall later in the term.  
Summer 2018

The Royal Wedding Party

On Friday 18th May, we celebrated the upcoming wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.  We all dressed up in red, white and blue, enjoyed a wonderful feast and played some traditional sports on the field.

Spring 2018

Bramall Hall

This half term, we enjoyed a visit to Bramall Hall near Stockport.  We learned lots of interesting information about what life was like in Tudor Britain.  During the day, we took part in 5 different workshops about Tudor food, religion, clothes, health/hygiene and entertainment.  

Design and Technology

In D&T, we have been designing, making and evaluating our work.  Linked to our science work on habitats, we each chose a habitat (forest, water, desert, tundra or savanna).  We then designed a shoe box habitat.  Also, we researched which animals and plants lived there.  Using a shoe box we then created our habitat.  Look at the slideshow to see our amazing results.


Welcome back to another term.  We hope you had an enjoyable Christmas break.  This half term, our research topic is 'Weather' and in science we will be learning about habitats.  In English our work will also be on the theme of weather where we will be learning to be weather presenters/meteorologists! 

Autumn 2017



In science we have been investigating circuits.  We were given batteries, wires and bulbs and were challenged to make the bulb light up.  After that, we made a mask and included a circuit in the design.  Have a look at the photos to see for yourself!

R.E. and Music

Creswell Crags

On Tuesday 31st of January, we enjoyed a fantastic day out at Creswell Crags as part of our ongoing research topic - From Stone Age to Iron Age.  When we eventually arrived, we were split up into different tribes and then went off to explore.  Dressed in hard hats and lamps, we entered Robin Hood's cave and learned all about what life would have been like during the Stone Age.  We also learned about survival skills,  walked around the fascinating museum and studied cave art.  It was a great day out and the visit has inspired us all.



Happy New Year!  This term, our main research topic is From Stone Age to Iron Age.  We will be learning about what life was like in Stone Age Britain and visiting Creswell Crags to explore how Stone Age people lived.  In science, we will be studying rocks and soils.  We have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned and are really looking forward to learning and being the best that we can be.

Autumn Term 2016

Welcome back to another exciting year at Aldwyn.  Today was the first day back for the children and everyone has had a great day.  This morning we went to our maths and English groups, Mrs Charnock talked to us in assembly and we had an impromptu fire alarm!  During the afternoon we started to look at our science topic where we will be learning about skeletons, muscles, food and nutrition.

This term, our research topic is 'The Local Area'.  We will be finding out about the local canal, the Moravian settlement in Droylsden, religions in the local area and much, much more.    

Clayton Hall - A Victorian Christmas

Click on the link below to look at some of the work that the children in years 3 and 4 have been doing.  Last half term, we worked with Mr Goodier where we learned about lots of interesting and useful features of Google.

English - spellings - Miss Fell's English group

Each week we will put a link on here to the weekly spellings list for Miss Fell's English group. The children will practise the spelling rules and strategies in class during the week and will be assessed each Friday.  

*****No spellings were given out this week (w/b 23.05.16) so there won't be a spelling test on the last Friday of this half term. *********

Spring Term 2016

We hope that you have had a fun filled Christmas holiday and we wish you all a happy new year.

This half term, we are going to be learning about the counties and cities of the United Kingdom and doing lots of work using maps and atlases.  In history, we will be learning about what life was like for children in different periods in the past including the Tudors, the Victorians and during World War II.  Our English work will be based around the theme of 'weather' and we'll be producing and writing weather reports, explaining how the water cycle works and writing stories with weather descriptions.  

Art, French, music, PE and much more will also be covered during the term.

Autumn Term 2015

Welcome to 3/4F's class page.  Keep checking back to this page to find out what we've been learning about in class.  This term, our research topic is Ancient Egypt and in science, we will be learning about the digestive system, teeth and food chains.  Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday so please make sure that your full PE kit is in school on these days.  


In science we have been investigating circuits.  Having successfully created a circuit using a battery, bulb and wires, we made predictions then tested different arrangements of the components.  We really enjoyed it!

In computing we are learning about coding.  


December 3rd 

Today we have been learning how to write code to program a button to make a helicopter move.  Have a go at Hafsa's app!



November 26th

We have created our program to make the plane change direction when different keys are pressed on a keyboard.  Take a look at Jamie's program where he thought really carefully about which keys to use (m for move, u for up, d for down and s for stop).  Can you make the plane loop the loop?

Design and Technology

Having evaluated existing products and planned our own designs, the making process has begun.  We are hoping that our final products will be available for an Egyptian masquerade ball before the end of the autumn term.  These papier mache balloons will eventually be transformed into amazing masks.


In History we have been learning about Ancient Egypt.  Click on the link below to find some great information about different aspects about life in Ancient Egypt.

Maths - Miss Fell's group

On Monday 12th October, Miss Fell's maths group were given a username, password and school code to access the activities on the Active Learning website.  Miss Fell will allocate different activities for the group to carry out at home.  If you click on the link below, then that will take you straight to the website where you can enter your details.  Enjoy!

Click on the link to Interactive Resources where you'll find lots of exciting games which will help you with your maths.  Your child should know the username and password.

Design and Technology

In Design and Technology we are going to be looking at masks.  If you have any masks then we would really appreciate borrowing them in order to evaluate existing products which will then feed in to our own designs.  They could be made of any material including plastic, wood, fabric or card.  Also, we would like to collect newspapers for papier mache.  So, please send them in as soon as possible.  Thanks.



This half term, our class are working with Mr Rose to develop our ball skills.  We have been practising our throwing and catching skills.

Summer Term 2015

End of Year Roman Feast - Wednesday 22nd July

To celebrate the end of this term where we have been learning about Roman Life, and because it's nearly the end of the year, we decided to have Roman morning.  The children dug out their costumes from earlier on in the term and had a fantastic time.

In the morning, we made Roman(ish) biscuits and cakes.  After break we tasted a selection of foods that would have been around during Roman times.  Unfortunately, we couldn't get hold of any stuffed dormice anywhere!
