Our literacy focus for the first four weeks of Autumn will be looking at Historical Novels (Beowulf) and for the last two weeks we will look at Non-Chronological Reports. Historical Novels will be related to our History topic of the Anglo -Saxons.
The children will have an Anglo Saxon visitor coming into school which will be an amazing opportunity for the children to learn about the Anglo- Saxons.
We innovated Beowulf and the Grendel. What do you think of our work?
We will be following the Stoneyholme Maths Scheme and continuing learning basic number skills and calculation.
The children must continue to learn their times tables and their division facts regularly!
In the last week of the Autumn term, we will look at Sound as part of our science topic. The children will have the chance to investigate sound and be introduced to a variety of new vocabulary.
Art / DT
Children will explore different skills in drawing to sketch a variety of Anglo Saxon objects found at Sutton Hoo. They will also use clay to construct a 3D clay pot which would have been used in Anglo-Saxon times.
Living the Faith
We are discussing key words such as friendship, commitment, roles, leaders and community.
Invasion Games and Swimming
We hope many of the Y4 children will gain their 25 and 50 metre certificates.
E-safety and Photo story
The children will use the story of Beowulf to construct a photo story. They will have the opportunity to add pictures, write captions and make transitions between different slides.
We will study Anglo Saxon Settlement.
What a busy and fun filled half term we have planned!!
