Autumn Term 2020
Our first topic in the autumn term is ‘World War 2.’ We will begin the year looking at the books ‘Rose Blanche and Letters from the Lighthouse.’ We will follow the characters’ lives throughout the War and look at how it affected them. In history, we will learn the key facts about the changes in Britain throughout the War, the causes of it and how other countries from across the globe also came to fight alongside Britain. This is one of our favourite units of work and we always look forward to teaching it!
After a couple of weeks, we will move onto our science unit, Light. We will build on the work on light from year 3, exploring the way that light behaves, including light sources, reflection and shadows. We will also explore the human eye, labelling the parts of the eye and their functions.
In maths, we will begin the year looking at number and place value: reading, writing and ordering numbers up to 10,000000. We will then progress onto using the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Ensuring children can recall basic number bonds and times table knowledge to support them in using written methods when calculating. Each lesson will begin with ‘Fluent in 5’ this allows the children to become used to answering questions in a given amount of time.
