"The History Man" - Thursday 30th November (in school). Please pay via Arbor by Friday 24th November.


AUTUMN 2 - take a look at our learning!

In English, we are learning to write biographies. We have had lots of discussions about inspirational people and spent time reading books from the "Little People, Big Dreams" collection.


We created poppies to represent remembrance day. 


Well done everyone in Year 4 for an amazing piece of writing based on Hogwarts castle! Please read Beth's beautiful setting description below.


In reading, we enjoyed studying a poem with an autumn focus. It was lovely that the children had the opportunity to read and perform the poem outside.


Our current science topic is 'Electricity'. The children have enjoyed getting practical with wires, cells, bulbs, motors and buzzers to create different circuits. 


In Year 4, we challenged the children to create their own maths games. We have been learning about comparing numbers. We are so proud of everybody's effort and the creativity shown by all the children. 

We have had a fantastic start to the autumn term!

The children were asked what their favourite activities have been so far - here is what they said!

  • Roman mosaics
  • Earthquake drill
  • Times tables rockstars 
  • Writing kenning poetry
  • Creating our own circuit games in PE.

Our topic for the autumn term is "Shake, Rattle & Roll!" The main focus for this term are earthquakes and The Iron Man - Ted Hughes. We will also learn about the Romans (we have booked "The History Man" to provide the children with an incredible experience).
