Important Class Information

PE Days: Mondays and Wednesdays. Children need to come to school wearing their PE kit.

Reading Books: reading books will be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Lunchtimes: Children will be eating lunch in their houses (Apollo, Endeavour, Galileo and Phoenix), and houses will be rotated regularly. This provides children with the opportunity to mix with other year groups and to make new friends. Feedback from the children to date has been very positive.

This term, our topic will be Geography and Science based but will also include Art, RE, Computing and PSHCE.  Our theme 'Bountiful Biomes' looks at biomes across the world and investigates the different climates, vegetation belts and wildlife as well as the impact on pollution. In science we will be understanding the life cycle of plants and how they have adapted to different biomes. The children will be learning how to stay safe during PSHCE will encourage children to discuss and learn ways to stay safe. In art, children will use their observational skills for drawing and look at how they can make improvements to their drawings. In RE, we will learn about rules in religion, including the Ten Commandments and the Five Pillars of Islam and how these are relevant today.


In English, we will be starting off with a summer recap and some one off writes to understand the childrens' capabilities.  We will also be recapping some of their previous years skills to embed them before moving onto new skills. Our main focus this term will be writing a non-chronological report.


We will be learning about place value, number and rounding. We will also have a strong focus on times tables during each lesson throughout the day. 

We are looking forward to the exciting learning that will take place! 


Reading: Please continue to listen to your child read daily, even for 10 minutes, and complete the reading task in the reading journal. Books should be changed regularly.

Maths Passport: Regular practise of Maths Passport targets helps pupils to retain knowledge and helps them to utilise these facts in other mathematical learning. 

Times Tables: It is important all pupils are learning the times tables up to the 12 times table and know these by the end of year 4.
