Autumn 2017

English Maths RE       Science Topic PE      

For the first half of the Autumn term we will be looking at 'The Tempest', rewriting the first chapter in our own words and then creating our own adventure stories.  We will create a toolkit for our writing as a class and use this to support our writing to help us to include key features. 

 

In Maths, we will be covering the year 4 mathematics curriculum starting with number sense for three weeks, followed by additive reasoning where we will be learning different methods for addition and subtraction.  Within this unit we will also visit fractions, data handling and statistics.

 

There will continue to be a weekly times tables based challenge/test to help support the learning of basic key number skills. 

Our RE topic is 'The Bible' We will be looking at how God and Jesus' word are spread through the stories of The Bible.  

 

Our science topic this term is 'Digestion'. In this unit the children will learn about the structure of the mouth and about how to care for their teeth.  The investigation for this unit will be which drink stains your teeth the most and potentially causes the most decay.
