Year 3/4 - Miss C. Howard


Welcome to Ospreys class! I'm Miss Howard and I’s the class teacher. Mrs Rogers, Miss Frowen and Miss Davies also work in Ospreys class.


We will start the Autumn term by spending two weeks focusing on British Values. We will be reading the book ‘Atticus Claw breaks the Law’ to understand the rule of law and then discuss the school rules and how they help keep us safe and happy. We will learn that we need to take responsibly for our own behaviour and except the consequences if we behave poorly. We will also discuss how it feels to be angry and how we can learn to control this emotion.


Our topic for the Autumn Term is ‘Rotten Romans’. We will begin the topic with an exciting hook day, where we will be making Roman shields and learning Roman chants in preparation for ‘The Battle of the Classes!’

Throughout this term we will be developing our historical skills and knowledge about the Roman Empire. During this topic, we will be visiting the Roman Fortress and Baths in Caerleon.


In Science, we will be looking at different states of matter. We will be identifying solids, liquids and gases and observing how materials can change state. We will develop our Growth Mindset approach by focussing on resilience. In Computing, we will be developing our key skills and understanding of what a computer network is.


In the Autumn term, our P.E days will be Monday and Friday. It is a good idea if children keep their P.E kits in school at all times as P.E lessons may change due to weather and school commitments.
