Squirrel Class

Welcome to the Squirrel class page 


Squirrel class comprises of Years three and Years four, and covers the Lower Key Stage Two curriculum. Our class teacher is Mr. Turner and we are supported by Mrs. Cutmore and Mrs. Miller. In addition to this, Mrs. Cutmore covers Planning, Preparation and Assessment time (PPA) on Tuesday afternoons.

Sounding Off

In this half-term's topic, a leading role is given to sounds in general and their use in making music in particular. We will look at how different sounds are produced and developed in music and what causes them to look different in science. In our English, we will be researching and producing information reports on musical instruments of our choosing and then exploring, developing and writing our very own poems fit for performance. Drawing whilst listening to sounds and examining what sound waves look like will be a key focus in our art and design, as we prepare to build a mobile sculpture inspired by sound.



Homework for Squirrel class is set each half term in relation to our current topic. The activities included are ideas that you and your child (or children) could complete together. For example, you could select one activity a week or complete a couple over each weekend. The download for this term's ideas will be up shortly.


Times Tables

Squirrel class will have weekly times tables tests. Times tables will be sent home in blocks for children to learn by heart. By the end of year three, children are expected to know their 3s, 4s, 6s and 8s off by heart. By the end of year four, children are expected to know all of their timetables, from 1-12, off by heart.



The file below contains the spelling list that year three and year four children are expected to learn throughout lower key stage two. Contained within the document are several techniques that you and your child could do together to help learn some of the tricky words. 


Roman Shield Making

Squirrel class have been busy towards the end of our Roman's topic creating Roman inspired shields. Just like real Roman shields, the children used Roman myths, real life events and Roman colour schemes to inspire their designs.
