Welcome to Otters Class
Our learning Term 3 


Miss Gough

Class Teacher

Mrs Martin

Teaching Assistant


In Geography we will explore and understand the location and place knowledge of the world's tropical rainforests. As well as, explore the Place, Space, Environment, Scale and Change of the world's tropical rainforests. We will look closely at South America and The Amazon Rainforest. 


Our topic is 'states of matter'. 

We will learn  to- 

  • Compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases.
  • Observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C)
  • Identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature. 


The Year 4 Multiplication check will take place in the Summer term. 

Below is an overview of when we will be learning each times table. 

Please support your child at home with regular practice. Ideally this would be 5 minutes each day. 

Regular practice can be completed on Times Table Rockstars (TTRS), listening to Times Table songs and regular recall. 

We would recommend to check your child's heat map on TTRS so you can support them with their recall on specific tables.

If earrings are removed, please ensure that your child has a small pot or safe place to keep them in.


On Wednesday afternoons, I am out of the classroom for Planning, Preparation and Administration time. The class will be covered by Mrs Gates for RE, Music and Spanish.
