St Barnabas C of E Primary School

Aspire, Believe - Together Achieve

Inspired by Great Britain's Tim Peake and his successful space mission, we've decided to name our classes after space rockets and launchers.  In the words of Buzz Lightyear, 'to infinity and beyond' - at St Barnabas this is where we take our learning!

We are APOLLO class welcome to our class page.

In Years 3 and 4 we build on the solid foundations of learning we have gained throughout Key Stage 1.  We focus on developing our independence at home, in school and in our learning.  We will be encouraged to take responsibility for always doing our best and challenging ourselves to be the best that we can possibly be.

This year we will be working closely with Liberty and Discovery classes, with lots of exciting topics to immerse ourselves in.  We will be encouraged to discover why things happen, explore how things change and to question everything!  Through creative, practical activities every child in our class will have the opportunity to succeed in a fun, supportive atmosphere.  There is nothing to stop us reaching for the moon!

Please read the three documents below. They outline the curriculum for Reading, Writing and Maths in Year 3 and 4. At St.Barnabas we use these documents to assess your children's depth of understanding throughout the academic year.

Pick 'n' Mix Homework Ancient Egypt Term 2

 Term 1 Activities

On Friday Liberty, Apollo and Discovery classes completed a maths challenge activity outside.  The children were challenged to make their way over the flooded River Nile (the playground) by earning stepping stones (PE equipment).  They earned equipment by completing maths challenges linked to this term's learning.  Challenges involved teamwork and problem solving skills being applied in order to be successful.  They were awesome! 


Term 2 Activities

 Rugby Coach Visit

The children had a fantastic time working with the rugby coaches.


 River Nile Investigations!


We were investigating the impact of the River Nile flooding.  We learnt how the Nile floods allowed crops to grow close to the river as this land became fertile whilst the rest of the land would not allow anything else to grow.
