Class Dojo   

At Abingdon Primary School we use a commucation app called Class Dojo.  We use this to engage parents by sharing photos and videos of exciting moments in the classroom. It is also an effective way for teachers and parents to communicate.

Please contact me on Class Dojo with any concerns or messages.

Follow us on Twitter @AbingdonPrimary

We will be learning Spanish using Languagenut.



At Abingdon we use Times Tables Rock Stars. Children are encouraged to play at home to improve their speed and scores. Certificates will be awarded for various achievements. 

Important Messages

PE will take place every Tuesday and Friday morning. Please can you ensure children are coming to school wearing their PE kit eon these days. PE kit must be a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps/trainers.

Creative Curriculum

At Abingdon we follow a creative curriculum. This is split into 2 cycles. Cycle A and Cycle B. Due to 3/4 Kites being a mixed age class, coverage of the entire year 3 and 4 curriculum is met over a 2 year period through completion of the 2 cycles.

Times Tables 

The children are expected to learn their times tables. We will help them do this in school but they are also expected to practise at home. They can use Times Table Rock Stars at home and in school to help them. In Year 4, children will be completeing a Times Table Check, so we are really eager to get all children prepared for this in Year 3!


Year 3/4 Statutory Spellings

Below is a list of all spellings that all year 3/4 children should know how to read and write by the end of year 4. Please practice these where possible. All will be sent throughout the year as weekly spelling practice and repeated to store them to memory.
