Autumn 1



In Literacy, wrote a magazine article based on the legend of The Loch Ness Monster for a children's magazine. We then continued our learning by writing an adventure narrative based on the theme of The Loch Ness Monster.


We explored the concept questions of 'Is being part of a COMMUNITY the same for everyone? and Is TRADE necessary?'



As mathematicians, we looked at Place Value and the idea that as we move the position of a digit, it has a different value. We used this knowledge to help us compare and order numbers and use the <   > and = signs. We looked at rounding numbers and then adding and subtracting numbers up to 4 digits using a formal method.

Children use place value counters to represent numbers up to four digits.

Year four worked in groups to explain addition with renaming.



As Theologians we learnt, to retell some of the main parables of Jesus and explained how and why these might be a source of guidance for Christians; how Christians put these teachings in to action in the 21st century. We answered the key question 'What does love your neighbour really mean?' by describing and explaining Christian attitudes about how to treat others. Lastly, we looked at the importance of love for all as part of Christian life, and the ways this might be expressed. Our Key concept question was: 'What does it mean to be a good citizen?'



Children respond to how they think we should live our life’s using parables as a guidance.

In PSHCE, we learnt how to take care of our mental wellbeing, understand how our feelings can change over time, investigating respectful relationships by understanding what personal boundaries are and privacy both personally and online. We then learnt about caring friendships and  further elements respectful relationships by being able to recognise respectful behaviour, understanding what it means to treat other and being treated politely and learning about differences in people.

We focused on the disciplinary concept: What does it mean to be a citizen? And the substantive concept of relationships.

We had a go at chair yoga as a technique for when we might flip our lids.

Invasion Games: Basketball

We will send and receive a basketball using chest and bounce passes. We will move into spaces to receive passes and dribble with a basketball with control. We will use simple tactics to outwit opponents and apply simple attacking principles in an invasion game. We will evaluate and recognise our success.



As Scientist we learnt about animals including humans. We learnt to identify and describe the functions of different human teeth, name and describe the functions of organs in the digestive system and created and used food chains to identify producers, predators and prey.


In this unit, we focused on the substantive concept of nature and answer the question 'Why are food chains important in nature?'

Children having a look at the different types of teeth in their mouth.


As historians, we researched'The Roman Empire'. We found out where Rome is and how it got its name. We learnt about some key people and events from the time of the Romans and find out how they became so important. We found out how the Punic wars helped the Roman Empire to spread

Children explored the life of a Roman soldier.




In computing we have been able to recognise acceptable and unacceptable behaviour using technology and understand what computer networks do including the Internet and how they can provide multiple services.
