Welcome to Year 3 and 4
We have three mixed age classes in Year 3/4; Tigers, Lions and Leopards.
Year 3/4 are lower Key Stage 2. Teachers liaise closely with Year 2 staff in the Summer term to ensure a smooth transition into the KS2.
Below you can find the newsletters for year 3/4. It may be a good idea to print the latest newsletter and place it somewhere safe so you can check current information.
Homework and Home Activities
Homework is set weekly, one week online and the following week paper based. It is always best if homework is completed in a quiet environment, away from the television.
Below you will also find some key links to the websites homework is set on. If your child has forgotten their login details please get in touch.
The curriculum runs on a 2 year cycle meaning all of the year 3 and 4 objectives are covered over the two years that children are in the y3/4 department.

At Scargill we want to ensure all children have a love of reading. ERIS (Everyone Reads In Scargill) takes place daily, shared reading happens three times a week and children have plenty of opportunity to read for pleasure.
All children have a reading record which parents are expected to complete each time their child reads at home. Below is a link to recommended reads for Y3 and Y4.
School Trips and Visitors
We value the importance of having visitors in school and the opportunity to go on school trips and residentials here at Scargill. In Year 4 children have the opportunity to go on a residential to Edale. Each year the children (and staff) love this time as it offers a chance to further develop their cultural capital whereby they put their team work skills to the test, build their resilience and develop their independence.
Below is a link to the website, where you can find out a little more about what adventures take place there.
