Welcome to Hazel Tree - Mr Gawne

Welcome to Year 3/4 - Hazel Tree Class. I hope you have all had a restful Summer break and are ready to return to school, we certainly can not wait to welcome you back. A special welcome to those of you joining us in the juniors / KS2 for the very first time. On this page, you will find some useful information about the term ahead and any key messages that you need to be aware of. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see our class Twitter feed and link to Google Classroom. We love to use Twitter to share some of the excellent things going on in Hazel Tree Class and will use Google Classroom to support learning at home - spellings, homework and useful documents will be uploaded and made available on there. 

We are set to have a great year and have some really exciting things planned and lots of new things to learn about. I'm really looking forward to meeting you and your families over the coming term.

As always, it is important that we continue to work in partnership to ensure the very best for your children. If you have any queries or need some support, please do not hesitate to telephone, arrange an appointment to speak to me through the school office or I am around at the end of each day.

In Geography this term we will be looking at the question 'What Makes the Earth Angry?'.  We will be learning about our planet's natural disasters: earthquakes and volcanoes. We will look at what happens when a natural disaster takes place and why they happen. We will also learn about how some countries have put in measures to protect themselves. 


In History this term, we are looking at the enquiry question 'Who Were The Mayans?' and will focus on what life was like during this time period and their achievements. The child will explore where this time period of history fits in relation to others and look at how aspects of their lives have influenced ours today.

Useful Information:


  • Remember to read for at leat 10 minutes a day.  This can be your school book, own book, newspapers, comics, shopping lists!  

Times Tables: 

  • Children should try to use TTRockstars and https://urbrainy.com/mtc regularly at home to help with their recall of times tables. Children in Y4 are tested on all of their time tables up to 12x12 in a multiplication check at the end of the year. 


In Maths this term, we will be focusing on extending our knowledge of Place Value and Number from last year and looking at using the four written methods of calculation. We will continue to look at applying our knowledge to problem solving questions. In Y3, children extend their place value knowledge of numbers in HTO up to one thousand and in Y4, children extend their knowledge of numbers beyond 1000. 


In English this term, we will continue to extend our knowledge of punctuation and grammar and continue to work on our reading and spelling skills. We like to link our English learning to texts and use these to inspire our writing. One of the texts we will be using this term is The Flower by John Light.
