This Term


Our theme this term is ROTTEN ROMANS. We will be reading this book as our class read and analysing it during Guided Reading sessions:




In History, we will be exploring the Romans and what impact they have had on modern society. In Science, we will be looking at animals including humans and living things and their habitats. As part of PPA cover, Mr Swale will be teaching the children French, RE and CPSHE. Geography lessons will be focused around locational knowledge and human and physical geography. We will be learning about the shapes of continents and looking at countries within Europe. We will also be exploring changes to the environment and weather patterns. In Art sessions, we will be looking at Roman sculptures and practising our sketching skills. During D&T, we will be making Roman sandals. As part of PE, we will be completing Netball and Dance units. The children will also be given opportunities to sing and perform as part of a group to an audience during our Harvest and Christmas productions. Children will also be taught coding skills as part of their computing lessons. We will be going on a school trip to The Roman Baths' Clore Learning Centre for a workshop about Roman life. The trip will take place on 14th December 2022


We have a very exciting Autumn term ahead of us!

Times Tables

Knowing your times tables up to 12 x 12 is extremely important. The National Curriculum states that all children should know their times tables by the end of Year 4. The children will be sitting a times table test in the Summer Term. Knowing your times tables makes all areas of Maths so much easier! You can practise your times tables by completing mini quizzes, Rainbow Maths, Hit the Button or by using Times Table Rockstars.
