Autumn Term

Parent/Carer Curriculum Information

Throughout the year we will attach overviews with more information about what your child will be learning in each curriculum area during each term. We cover a variety of exciting topics throughout the year and may ask your child to bring in items from home to support these.

Homework

This half term homework will be reading, times tables and spellings.

Educational Visits:

We enrich our curriculum by arranging the following:

Topic based visits.

Visits to our parish church Holy Apostles and Martyrs.

Visits to our local theatre the Floral Pavilion.

Sports competitions at local schools.

English

We are currently studying the wonderful book 'Counting on Katherine' in our English lessons.

Our 'Class Reader' for Autumn term is 'Alice in Wonderland'

RE - The Bible

“The Scriptures are the living Word of God, written under the guidance of the Holy Spirit received and faithfully handed on within the living Tradition and teaching of the Church.”

Religious Education Curriculum Directory

The children will have the chance to:

• explore how the Bible helps us to pray and experience how God speaks to us in the Bible

• participate in a liturgy and experience a guided meditation on a text from the Bible

At home

You could help your children by:

• reading some of the stories the children have covered in class

Physical Education (PE)

Our P.E day is Wednesday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Wednesday wearing their PE Kit. The PE kit includes black or navy shorts, a white T-shirt and a pair of trainers. As PE lessons will largely be held outside, your child may need something warmer (eg black or navy jogging bottoms and their school sweatshirt or cardigan).For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.

Reading

The children are expected to read independently at home on a regular basis (15 minutes per night). They should keep a record in their diary of what they have read. Please listen to them read out loud  and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.

Spellings

Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 3/4 by the end of Year 4. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home. Click the file below to see the year 3/4 spelling list and practice some of the words at home.

Times Tables

Y4 - By the end of Y4 children are expected to know all of their tables up to 12 x 12 and associated division facts. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.
