Our P.E. takes place every Thursday afternoon, please ensure that your child has full kit for this day.

Homework will be given out on a Friday to be completed by Wednesday of the following week.  The homework will consist of one piece of Maths and one piece of English (this will change once in a while when children may receive a special homework). 

Spellings will now be sent home on a Friday, giving the children one full week to learn them, ready for a test the following Friday morning.  All homework is to be completed to the standard we expect in school.


Your child should aim to read every day for at least 20 minutes.  See the Literacy page for some top tips!

In the coming weeks the children will be using a short animation called The Blue Umbrella as a stimulus for their writing.  Within these lessons children will be learning the correct use of adjectives, similes, complex sentences, subordinate clauses, adverbs, rhetorical questions, direct speech, alliteration as well as writing about feelings and opinions.  They will build up a collection of sentences over a period of weeks, with the end result being the children writing a narrative story based on the animation.  This will be paired with weekly SPAG lessons and comprehension lessons.



During the Autumn term the children will be exploring two topics.  The first topic is The Bible; here children will learn how to find a Bible reference as well as learning various Bible stories and about the Bible itself.  The second topic will explore putting their Trust in God and the importance of the word trust.



The children will be studying the Romans as their first topic of Year 4.  They will learn about the Roman Invasion of Britain, the Roman army as well as finding out about the Celts led by their fierce leader, Queen Boudicca.



The children will be learning all about the States of Matter.  They will learn to define solids, liquids and gases and explore their properties.  The children will gain an understanding as to who the particles in each are formed and also how states of matter can change in certain materials.
