Important days

  • Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be returned by Wednesday. If your child needs help with their homework, please speak with their class teacher before the return day.
  • Outdoor games is on a Wednesday. Children need to bring PE kit and trainers. Indoor PE is on a Thursday (both classes) and swimming is on a Tuesday (4Y) and Wednesday (4B). We recommend that PE kit is brought in each Monday and that it stays in school until Friday, in case PE day changes for any reason. 

Topic

Our topic for Autumn 2 is Italy.  We will be using maps, atlases, globes and digital mapping to locate Italy and will look closely at geographical features such as mountains and rivers. As well as this, we will find out key facts about Italian culture, focusing on people, places and language. 

In maths, we will be looking at different units of measure, including time, and completing a unit on multiplication and division. By the end of Year 4, children are expected to know every times table fact up to 12 x 12, so we will continue to focus on these ‘Learn Its’ in CLIC; please encourage your child to practise their tables at home.

In DT, we will learn how to prepare a healthy sandwich, including all of the food groups. As well as this, we will learn skills such as slicing and chopping.

Our science topic will be states of matter, where we will investigate solids, liquids and gases.

In music, we will continue to rehearse for our Young Voices concert as well as learning how to play the recorder.

Our outdoor games sport this half term will be hockey and we will continue to enhance our gymnastics and dance skills in PE lessons.

Linked to our work in topic and DT, 4Y children will be visiting Pizza Express to make their own pizza.
