Year 3/4 St Theresa Class Page
Welcome to St Theresa’s Class Page. Mrs Humphries is the Class Teacher and Mrs Grady and Miss Casey are the Teaching Assistants.
Information for this half term:
What a lovely week we have had! Whilst some of our friends have been enjoying the residential, we have had fun learning about Sikhism, Islam and Hinduism with a bit of World War II dancing thrown in as well.
We learned about the five pillars of Islam, made divas for Diwali and designed Mendhi for a Sikh celebration:
To finish off our week, Miss Pitt taught us a dance to ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’ and we even added our own choreography into the routine.
We have made a fantastic start to the summer term and are really enjoying learning about World War Two. The children have written some brilliant diary entries based on Anne Frank. Please continue to learn the facts from the Knowledge Organisers.
We had a chance to look at some WWII artefacts brought in by Regan and Scarlett:
We are really pleased with our Times Table Rock Stars progress. Make sure to keep practicing at home so we can improve our scores!
If any parents would be willing to help with our Summer Fair, please come and see Mrs Humphries. Thank you!
What a brilliant morning we have had! All of the children put in a great effort and have begun to learn some new skills with skipping ropes…some of us even managed to do skipping with a partner.
World Book Day
Well done to everyone for their effort on World Book Day. We had fun pretending to be our characters in our book using a green screen. Here are a few of our photos:
Well, we have made a super start to this half term. We have been looking at ‘The Tyger’ by William Blake which was written over 200 years ago! The children really enjoyed looking at the language within the poem. Next week, they will be writing their own poem in this style about Tigger.
Keep going with the Times Table Challenge – there’s two weeks left!

What a fantastic half term we have had! It has been really interesting learning about the Industrial Revolution and the children have written some absolutely brilliant stories. We hope you enjoyed seeing their inventions when they brought them home.
We hope you have a restful week and look forward to beginning another exciting half term. Keep going with your Times Table Challenge!
We have had a brilliant week. The children have been busy using their strategies for division to find the quotient – you can ask them to show you! In English we’ve been innovating our own stories and thinking of some very interesting characters.
Next week, Miss Moriani’s Times Table Challenge begins again so look out for the packs coming home on Monday. We are also looking forward to seeing your homework projects on Friday. A letter has gone home today but you can also check our Curriculum Newsletter on the website.
We have made a great start to the Spring Term. Our PE day is now on a Tuesday and we have swimming on Thursdays. We are currently changing to a new way of practicing our spellings and will soon be sending home some information about this.
Well done to all of the children for participating in Miss Moriani’s Times Table Challenge! We will be starting a new challenge in the Spring Term, and have sent home the children’s packs so they can continue to practice if they would like to. Our new maths homework will be online until then and the children will have their My Maths log-ins sent home next week. Keep going with the Times Tables Rock Stars! If you do not have a Times Tables Rock Stars log-in, please come and speak to me and I will help sort one out for you.
We are really enjoying this time of Advent and preparing for the Christmas season. Our class Jesse Tree is reminding us of the events of the Bible leading up to Jesus’s birth. We have also been saying the Act of Sorrow every day in preparation for Christmas.
Roman Trip to Alcester Heritage Centre:
Both Year 3 and Year 4 had a fantastic time on the trip even though we went on separate days. We found out lots of information about how Alcester was a Roman market town and even saw some red lines that marked out where a real Roman Villa used to stand. One of our favourite parts of the trip was dressing up as a Roman soldier with armour and weapons!
Well done to all the children for planning, preparing and leading the school’s Harvest Mass. It was a lovely service and all the children read and sang beautifully.
What a fantastic start to the school year! The children have settled in superbly and we have really enjoyed getting to know our new class.
We have PE on Thursday and Friday, and our spelling test takes place on Monday. Please send bookbags into school everyday.
