Autumn Term 

The Ancient Egyptians

This term we are learning about The Ancient Egyptians. We have already enjoyed a fun and informative trip to The Manchester Museum. We handled real artifacts from Ancient Egypt, deciding which would be most useful in the afterlife. We also constructed a model of a pyramid. Our excellent teamwork skills meant that we were able to complete this task in a record breaking 2 minutes and 4 seconds! 

  The Bible

Our R.E. topic for this half term will be The Bible. We will learn how to use book and verse references, study well known stories such as David and Goliath and also learn about the differences and common themes of The Old Testament and  The New Testament.


In year 4 we get our homework on Wednesday and need to hand it in the following Tuesday.

Spellings are also tested on Tuesdays.

Our class are now working towards our target of knowing all our times tables up to 12 by the end of the autumn term. Congratulations to the three children who have already achieved gold.Their speed and accuracy will be of great help as they progress through their school life.

Swimming and P.E. are on a Tuesday.
