4K - Excellent Elephants

Our Autumn term takes us on a journey to India, we are looking at and comparing aspects of Derbyshire with that of India. The Magician's shop is our fantasy story that is set in a bazaar in India. We will be writing our own fantasy story thinking about how to add suspense into our story.

Maths looks at Perimeter and rectilinear shapes, we then move onto multiplication and division. We will be securing our times table knowledge to really support our work in maths. 

Reading continues to be very important and we are building a love for reading through our class novels as well as visiting the school library regularly. Our new text is Charlotte's Web and we will be finding out what happens to Wilbur the Pig!

Science explores Sound and looks at how sounds are made and how sounds travel to our ears. We explore pitch and then investigate how we can reduce the sound levels to protect our ears.

Hinduism is the focus of RE and we will be exploring what it is like to be a Hindu living in Britain. 

Our music allows us to develop our musical talents with glockenspiels, we will be composing our own music towards the end of the unit. 

Each week there is an expectation that pupils read daily and complete their reading records when they finish each book. There are spellings to learn, TTRockstars and Maths Whizz. Please encourage your child to complete homework each week so that they continue to build on their skills.
