Welcome back Harriers!  My name is Mrs Desai and I am your class teacher for Year 3/4. 

Mrs Tegland also supports us in class.   

In Science, we have been looking at plants this term. Lots of Oracy discussion taking place.

We have been using our number beads and counters to help us with our division.

In Art, we have been exploring primary colours and making new shades of colours. We have discovered adding black or white to our paints to create different tints to our colours.

This Autumn Term, we have also been looking at description writing.


We have been very busy all year developing our reading, writing and comprehension skills in English. Here are some photographs of some of our learning. 


We have been working hard in maths and have found lots of useful methods to problem solve using base 10, counters, cubes and hundred squares. Below are some pictures of us hard at work. 


As part of our Science we are carrying out longitudinal studies throughout the year. We will be observing the changes that we can see in the park such as habitats, plants and flowers and even animals that we may see when we are out. 

Design Technology

This half term we have been looking at recycling. Over the last few weeks, we have been saving our milk bottles to create our very own 3d recycled elephants which we have decorated. Have a look below at some of our amazing creations. 

In DT this half term, we have been studying the Ted Hughes book The Ironman and have created a 3D model of a robot. The children have learnt the DT skills required to make a model independently. The children have also been reading the book The Ironman in Guided Reading lessons.


This week we have been using scratch pads to create our own version of The Iron Man to go alongside our learning in English. 


“We have far more in common with each other than that which divides us”. This week every child in school has been thinking about this quote and what it means to them. Thinking specifically about equality and diversity. The children have created some fantastic pieces of artwork independently to show what the quote means to them. The teachers of Frenchwood are so proud of some of the conversations that have been had in school as well as the amazing artwork produced.
