Be The B.E.S.T To Achieve Success For All

Welcome to Year 3/4 Orange Base


Miss Libberton and Mrs Wolstenholme welcome you to Year 3 and 4 in Orange Base!

Welcome to our class page, where you will be able to find all the useful information you need for the year and see some of our brilliant learning as well.

If there is any information you cannot see on this page, please come and see us when you pick up your child or contact the school office by email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Our school day starts at 8:40am when our classroom door will be open to welcome your child into school until 8:50am. Our school day ends at 3:10pm.


Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Children need to come to school in their PE kit.

This includes:


Dojo team coloured t-shirt

Black shorts/bottoms

Black zip up/jumper/hoodie

Please come and see me if you are unsure what team your child is in. Be aware your child needs long hair tied back and to be able to remove their own earrings on these days as well.


We love reading books from our year 3/4 reading spine. Regular reading at home really does help your children to become fluent confident readers. Therefore, we ask that they read at home at least 5 times in a week. This could be, for example, a school book, comic, magazine or recipe. We know that finding the time can be tricky but reading regularly at home really does make a difference.  We kindly ask that your child brings their reading book and reading record in a book bag every day.


We learn a new spelling rule each week which is on the termly homework sheet. You can support your child by playing spelling games and practicing writing the spellings - maybe in your fanciest coloured pens! In addition to this, they will also need to practise key words from the Year 3/4 Spelling List.


Regular times-table practise is really beneficial for your child as they progress in year 3 and 4. TTRockstars and Purple Mash is a good place to start: your child will have their own log in.


A new topic is introduced each half term. Your child will receive a Knowledge Organiser of important facts alongside a selection of topic related activities they can complete.


During half term six we will be learning all about 'Rivers'.

Take a look at our most recent learning ...

Tempus Fugit

We had a fantastic visit from Tempus Fugit to help us learn more about the Ancient Egyptians and how they lived as part of our topic.

We learnt about what was kept in tombs and why it was so important to the people buried in them. We even got to try on some clothes that would have been worn by people in the Pharaoh’s court.
