Autumn term

Welcome back! We hope you've had a lovely summer and are ready to learn! This term we will be learning about poetry and story writing in literacy, number and place value in maths, mountains, rivers and costs in topic, states of matter in science and landscapes in art. Please see our Curriculum Overview below for an in depth look at what your child will be learning this term. Also, please remember to read at home every night and to go on TT Rock Stars and Mathletics as often as you can. Thank you!

General Notices

The children will receive 3 pieces of home work each Friday. They will need to complete maths, literacy and spellings over the weekend and return it by the following Wednesday.

P.E - The class will participate in sessions on a Thursday afternoon. They will require full P.E kit with appropriate footwear. For the first half term the children will be swimming, and therefore require a costume and towel. A reminder that children must not wear ear rings on swimming days and that any ear rings that are worn must be studs.. 

          Our new topic for the Spring term is...

The Romans!

We are looking forward to finding out more about this amazing civilization and comparing how they lived to how we lived in Britain at the same point in history. 

Please look at our knowledge organiser for more information :)


Year 4 started their new topic by exploring the spread of the Roman Empire - do you know how many countries were part of it?

Year 4 enjoyed their first recorder lesson of the year.
