Year 3/4 - Einstein Class

Welcome to Einstein Class

Our Teacher is Mrs Sahin and our Learning Support Assistant is Mrs Gravestock. 


At the moment, we are learning all about rivers.  This will include identifying some features of a river as well as learning how they grow.  We will also learn about the importance of the water cycle in relation to rivers and their continual flow of water. We are reading ‘A River’ by Marc Martin to support us in our English work and our class novel is The Water Horse by Dick King-Smith

Things that help us learn

We use Timetable Rockstars, Mathletics and Oxford Reading Owl to support our home learning. We have established the use of Google Classroom as our online learning platform in Years 3 and 4.  This is also where homework assignments will be posted.


Our Curriculum Map

In Year 3 and 4, this year, we will learn about Rivers, Saxons & Vikings, Rainforests and a local history study of Farnborough as well as many more exciting things! Take a look at our Curriculum Maps to see what we are going to learn about throughout our journey this year.



This year we are looking to visit Ufton Court to develop understanding of Vikings along with The Living Rainforest.  We are also exploring the possibility of an overnight stay at Runway’s End for our Year 4 children.  We will of course keep you posted of any further developments.

If you have any questions or there is anything urgent that you think I need to know, please contact the School Office either by phone at 01252 548123 or by email at
