Dosbarth Tryfan - Years 3 & 4

Welcome to Dosbarth Tryfan



This Term our topic is 'The Tudors'. We will be looking at the Tudors through Literacy, Maths and the foundation subjects. We are very excited about our class trip to Ordsall Hall to learn more about Tudor way of life.


In Literacy, we will be focusing on writing a recount of life as a Tudor in the form of a diary, as well as reading ‘The Secret Diary of Thomas Snoop: Tudor Boy Spy.’ by Philip Ardagh. Other topics will also include looking at recounts, instructions and poetry.


In Maths we will be focusing on place value and the 4 operations (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication).


This term in science we will be learning about healthy living and the body.




P.E will take place twice a week; on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. Children will need their full P.E. kit id white t-shirt, white shorts, white socks and trainers. When the weather gets colder children are permitted to wear a tracksuit. Children are not to wear any jewellery for P.E.



Children are asked to read at least 3 times per week and for parents to sign their reading book. Their reading book needs to be in school every day. Learning Logs will be sent home on a Friday to be in the following week. Other homework includes spellings and times tables.
