Autumn Term


Hello and welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term, I hope you are all well and had an enjoyable half term break.


We have a busy few weeks ahead in the run up to Christmas with non-uniform days, the Christmas Fayre, parties, concerts, the Pantomime visit and also our class trip to Caerleon on Friday 7th December; newletter to follow shortly.


In maths this term we are focusing on mulitplication and division, so plenty of times table practice at home is really beneficial for the children, they are expected to know all tables from 2-12 by the spring term of year 4. 


In english we will be looking at 'The Firework Makers Daughter' using this text to support our writing. 

We will also be reading 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes as a class during Guided Reading, focusing on our comprehension of the text and vocabulary. 


Our topic will continue to be The Romans, which myself and the children are really enjoying.


In science, we are looking at sound, including learning to:

  • Identify how sounds are made, associating some of them with something vibrating
  • Recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear
  • Find patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produced it
  • Find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it


In music we continue to learn the Toot, which the children are doing really well with.


Miss Brown will  be teaching handwriting, SPAG, maths and RE/PSHE on a Wednesday, 


I am really looking forward to an enjoyable term with the children.


Kind Regards,

Miss Lee
