Life in Horse Chestnut Class

The children in Horse Chestnut class are looking forward to a great year of learning.

We complete Grammar Hammer and Big Maths on a Monday.

Our PE days will vary in the Summer Term.  Your child will require t-shirt, shorts and pumps in their PE Kit. 

We have a focused session on Reading, Writing, Maths and Phonics each day. We also enjoy lots of opportunities to learn about Science, Computing, French, History, Geography, RE, Art, DT and Music each week.

Our Curriculum

At Wimboldsley Primary School we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes excellence. We aim to foster a lifelong love of learning, through delivery a twenty first century education. A cross curricular approach to learning encourages the children to be independent, reflective learners and responsible citizens. We work closely with parents to support children’s learning.

Key skills we will be developing in Year 3 and 4


During this term we will covering a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry work; focussing on the following texts as a class:-

Snowboy and the Last Tree Standing - Hiawym Oram

Seal Surfer - Michael Foreman

Gorilla - Anthony Browne









This term in maths we will be focussing on applying the methods and skills we have previously been learning.  Additionally we will also follow the White Rose Hub documnetation and be working on:-

  • Number: Fractions
  • Number: Decimals
  • Money
  • Statistics
  • Shape and Geometry
  • Capacity and Mass

We will continue to focus on times tables throughout this term. All children have target times tables which we practice in school.






Our Topic

In the Summer Term we are engaging in a whole school curriculum project with Chester Zoo.  We will be answering the question ' What happens when there is no more palm oil?'

Please see our Curriculum Overview at the bottom of the page for more information.

It will be a busy and fun filled year of learning.
