Maths

In Autumn 1, we will be looking at Number and Place Value. We will recap areas missed in year 3 due to COVID-19 and work with four-digit numbers – representing in different ways, partitioning, rounding, ordering and comparing. We will also learn about Roman Numerals and negative numbers.

Literacy 

Our first text is ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. We will focus on poetry and letter writing as well as discuss and support the children’s emotional well-being after lockdown. The next text will be ‘Wolves’ by Emily Gravett. This text will focus on writing non-chronological reports, other non-fiction texts, creative writing and poetry.

History

We will be looking at the Romans- how they fit into Britain’s historical timeline, why they invaded Britain and the impact they had on British history.

Science

We will be investigating States of Matter and conducting simple experiments to explain some simple processes.

Please look out for Knowledge Organisers for each topic once school resumes. We encourage parents to use read and share them with their children so you are informed about the children’s learning in school.
