Autumn Term – First half

Mrs Leake, Mrs Hover and Mrs Finch hope you have all had a lovely summer and you are looking forward to starting Year 4! We can’t wait to see you all and we have been busy getting the classroom ready and planning lots of exciting new activities for your first term!

Read on to find out a little bit about some of these activities:

In English, we will be looking at Anthony Browne's book, 'Gorilla'.  We will read the story and look carefully at his clever and puzzling illustrations. To help us find out more about gorillas, we will also look at some at non-fiction books including 'Gorilla Journal' by Caroline Franklin and 'Ape' by Martin Jenkins.  We will watch film clips and learn about the brilliant charities that are helping to protect wildlife too.

Linking with this theme, we will be looking at 'Living things and their habitats' in Science.  This includes looking at how environments can change and how this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.

In History and Art, we will be learning all about the ‘Ancient Greeks’ and in RE, we will be looking at how Jesus taught about God and values through the parables.

During this half term, we will be focusing on the following themes in Maths: Number and Place Value and Addition and Subtraction.

Our class library is stocked full of books and we have a big box of new books for Guided Reading waiting for you! Remember to keep reading and start practising your times tables, using ‘Times Table Rockstars’.  Please see Year 4’s Maths Class Page (above) for further games and activities.


Associate Teacher: Mr Sloan has joined the Year 4 team and he will be working with us during the Autumn and Summer Term!



  • Please bring in a waterproof coat as we will be encouraging the children to go outside lots!
  • PE this half term will be on a Friday so the children will need to come to school dressed in their PE kits (joggers and leggings can be worn along with a pair of trainers).
