Spring Term Topic

Key Question: Who were the Romans and what did they do for us?

Hello everyone, we hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break and are all looking forward to an action packed spring term in Year 3 and 4. This term our topic is focussing on the Romans.

Writing: This half term our book in English is called 'Escape From Pompeii'. This is an exciting book,  that allows the children to explore natural disasters, whilst learning to describe, infer and build tension in their writing!

Reading: We will check your child's reading record and give them the opportunity to change their reading book every Friday.

If Children still take part in Phonic Lessons, this will be done on a Tuesday.

Spellings: We will give new spellings out, and have our spelling quiz, each Friday.


Throughout this term, in Maths, the children will be focusing on mutliplication and division, measure, statistics and fractions.


Our school promotes life in all it's fullness through the acromyn TRAIN

T is for Theology – Christian teaching as a faith school is rooted in the Bible, the teachings, and the life of Jesus supported by the Heartsmart principles and our Christian values.

R is for relationships, those we have with each other in school and our families.  The relationship we have with God through faith and our understanding of the trinity. (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit)

A is for aspirations and attitude, a desire for children and adults in school to experience life in all its fullness both academically and emotionally and socially, with an understanding of Gods purpose for us through his teaching in the bible.  Attitudes that are positive so that children and adults can be successful in all that they hope to achieve.

I is for inspire!  How do we, can we, should we, inspire each other every day to be the best that we can be in all our interactions and endeavours? 

N is for next steps on our journey – whatever that may be for children and adults -  that the experiences at Wharton CE have prepared them to take any next step with confidence and a secure foundation rooted in proverbs 22 v 6.


Mr Sear, Miss Preston and Miss Manton.
