Autumn Term 1 -
George's Marvellous Medicine
For the first half of term we are learning about the author Roald Dahl and his book 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. We shall be using the text in guided reading, discovering some fantastic vocabulary and drawing in the style of Quentin Blake, the illustrator of many Roald Dahl books. Our science topic is 'digestion and teeth' where we shall be looking in detail about how each part of the system works, and planning some experiments and observations on the effects of food on enamel and the body.
Here are some website links for our topic:
Draw like Quentin Blake:
Science - digestion and teeth

Autumn 2 - Telling the time
In Maths, we will start off this half term learning about time. The website below will really help you with this and it would be great if you could go onto this at home. If you get an adult to write in your home school diary that you have been practising on this website then you will get 3 smiley faces.
By the end of Year 4 everybody needs to know their multiplication facts up to the 12 times tables.
