Science - Light

For the first half of the Autumn term we will be looking at Light.

We will be considering questions such as:

Can we see things without light?

Are all materials reflective?

How do I see myself in a mirror?

Is it dangerous to look at the sun?

Why do shadows change?


Please encourage the children to access the TT Rockstars websure as much as possible. They will be primarily focusing on their 3, 4 and 8 times tables and related division facts. It is imperative that they get a good understanding of mental multiplication to help them in their maths journey at Dallam Primary.


Autumn Project

Our project question is...

Who were our prehistoric ancestors?

This Autumn we will be looking at The Stone Age to the Iron Age and The Romans invasion of Britain.


Each Monday your child will be bringing home some new spellings that they need to practice in school as well as at home. Some children will focus on patterns and some weeks there will be a spelling from the year 3/4 spelling list as set out in the National Curriculum.

Online Safety

The staff at Dallam are huge advocates of what an amazing tool the big wide web is. We are showing the children in Maple class how to use features such as email and blogging in a safe and controlled environment. However, we know that there is much more at their fingertips. Please have a read through the links below that the Maple team have put together for you. If you need any advice or to discuss matters further please see us any day at hometime.
