Welcome to Year 3/4 Orange Base
Welcome to Y3/4 Orange Base where Mr McArthur, Mrs Duke & Mrs Wolstenholme are your class teachers!
This is our class page, where you will find all the useful information that you will need during your time in our class.
Our day starts at 8.40am when our door will be open for children to come in until 8.50am. Our day ends at 3.10pm.
Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Children need to come to school in their PE kit which is trainers, black shorts/bottoms, a white t-shirt and black zip up jacket. Please make sure your child can remove their own earrings or remove these prior to PE on these days.
Homework is daily reading of either a levelled book or a book from the classroom or library (levelled books are changed each Monday). The aim is to read a minimum of 5 times in a week for 15 minutes each time. This will help your child build fluency in reading. Children will have weekly spellings to learn and will come home with a spelling plan at the beginning of each half term. In addition to this, they will also need to practise key words from Year 3/4 Spelling List. Maths homework involves a huge focus on times tables using the online platform, TT Rockstars.
We also hand out knowledge organisers to learn and set half termly homework projects based upon the upcoming focus in class.
If there is any information that you can't find on our class page, please get in touch with the school office by email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
During half term two, our project is ‘Ancient Egypt.’

Orange Base Visit to Sheffield!
Orange Base loved visiting Sheffield this week (11th October). We enjoyed our tram journey into the city centre where we sketched in the Peace Gardens, before visiting Sheffield Cathedral, where we contributed to their Remembrance Sunday display and learnt about the cathedral’s history.
