Autumn 2



In our English lessons we will be using Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to write a first-person diary account. 


We are learning how to use first and second person in our writing as well as working on our handwriting to earn our pen licences! smiley 


Spellings for Autumn 2

Spellings are glued into planners on a Monday to be tested the following Monday. Please encourage the children to learn the letter patterns and practise their handwriting at the same time.


Guided Reading


In Guided Reading this half term, we are studying the novel Matilda. We will be looking at characters and inference in the book, but also answering comprehension questions based on these using our VIPERS scheme. 


In our maths lessons this half term we are learning about:


  • Addition and Subtraction
  • Multiplication ad Division 


In Year 4, we work very hard on learning our times tables ready for the multiplication check in the summer term. So, it is very important that we know every times table fact fluently.

Our times tables for Autumn 2 are: 3x, 4x and 6x.





In Science, we are studying States of Matter. The children are learning about solids, liquids and gases as well as their properties and how one can change into another.




In Geography, we are learning all about Migration and Hemispheres/Tropics. We are studying lots of tricky vocabulary and learning about: types of migration, why people migrate, advantages and disadvantages and all about the hemispheres and tropics of Planet Earth.
