Autumn Term 2022



Our topic this term is 'Vicious Vikings'!


This topic will look at the history and geography of the Viking invasion of Britain, what impact they had on Britain, and how they fit in to a timeline from Romans and Anglo-Saxons to the Normans.




First half term

Our first unit of work will focus on imaginative story-telling using the book 'Gorilla' by Anthony Browne.




















Second half term

After half-term we will be exploring magical description of setting using the book 'Leon & The Place Between' by Grahame Baker-Smith.





This term the pupils will be working on 'place value' - looking at how numbers are constructed and how different digits carry different values. They will also be looking at column methods for addition and subtraction. 


Year 4 Multiplication Check


In late June the Year 4s will be doing their 'Multiplication Check'. They are given 6 seconds to answer timestables questions up to 12 x 12.


It is therefore really important to try to find time at home for your child to practise their timestables as practising them frequently is the only way to establish fluency in this area.


We are of course practicing these in school, but time and resources are limited and so individual practice at home is crucial.  


I have linked to some resources at the bottom of this page which can be used to practise times tables fluency at home.

P.E. - Mondays

During the Autumn term our P.E. day will be Mondays. We will also have swimming lessons each Tuesday afternoon, starting from the 20th September and then throughout the rest of the autumn term.
