Autumn Term- What are we learning ?
In our quest to become budding scientists, we will dive deep into the mysteries of the digestive system and teeth, uncovering the incredible mechanisms that keep our bodies running smoothly.
But… that’s not all!
We will also be donning our explorer hats in geography, setting out to explore the diverse landscapes and cultures of the United Kingdom, honing our map skills along the way. As budding artists, we will let our creativity soar as we experiment with colours, brushes, and palettes, drawing inspiration from the renowned artist David Hockney.
Get ready to compose and play musical performances with Mr. Crouch using the enchanting hand chimes – where musical magic awaits. We will also be unleashing our inner engineers to create incredible pneumatics, bringing to life moving monsters that will leave you in awe.
Brace yourselves for a term filled with curiosity, discovery, and creativity. Let’s embark on this incredible learning journey together!
We love to read and together we will be reading a variety of exciting and irresistible books. This term our main texts are; Voices in the Park and other stories by the author Anthony Browne and the incredible classic story of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis.
We have an exciting curriculum; please see our curriculum overview, which shows the curriculum content and the topics for this academic year.

Reading at home
All pupils have a reading folder, containing a reading book and a reading record.
If possible, we would like all children to read at home, at least 3 times per week.
These should be used by parents and pupils to capture the individual child’s reading journey. When you hear your child read, please record this in the reading record.

In Year 4, we encourage all children to take part in homework. All children will receive an Attitude and Achievement stamp for completing all homework on a fortnightly basis. This will be recorded in their Role Model and Citizenship record.
Year 4 children will be expected to complete the following each week:
- Read 3 times a week, using reading their records to evidence and summarise the text.
- Weekly activities set on Sumdog for Maths learning. If you are unable to access online homework, please let the class teacher know and we will make alternative arrangements.
- Practise the spelling and reading of the statutory Y4 words. You will receive a copy of your child’s spelling assessment, which will be updated every half-term.
- In addition, it is wise to consolidate previous years spellings.
This is the core homework expectations for Year. Additionally, personalised homework may be sent out on occasion.
