What are we learning about?
Curriculum Information Autumn Term 1 – September 2019


This half term, the children will be exploring the theme ‘Heroes and Villains’. We will be carrying out a local history study about Hereward the Wake and the impact he had on Ely’s history. We will be learning about forces and magnets in our Science and investigating how to make a car travel faster. For our design and technology project, the children will have the challenge of making a strong bridge. They will need to select appropriate tools and equipment whilst considering how to strengthen the structure of the bridge.


In English, we will be focusing on warning stories and using talk for writing to help us learn the structure of these. We will also have spelling and grammar sessions each week to support our writing. Later this half term, we will be learning how to write explanation texts. There will also be regular guided reading sessions to support their comprehension skills.


We are starting the year by learning about place value and consolidating our understanding of numbers. The children will be learning how to partition numbers up to 4-digits; ordering numbers; and rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. We will also be learning how to write Roman numerals.


With All4Sport, the children will be learning how to play tag rugby this half term. They will be developing their throwing and catching skills as well as how to work as a team to score points.


This half term, we will be learning about Sikhism and their key beliefs.


Year 4 will be continuing with their recorder lessons on Friday afternoons. Please ensure that these are in school on Fridays.

Home Learning

Please read regularly with your child and encourage them to read independently too. The children all have bookmarks with questions that you can ask them to support their comprehension skills. We would also appreciate if children could practise their times tables at home.
