What are we learning?

English

In English, we are reading a very emotive book called  Christoph’s Story by Nick Cornwell. We are going to be looking at emotions within texts, letter writing, and character description. We will look at different reading skills such as inferring and retriving.

Maths

In Maths, we will be continuing our Year 4 maths work, we will be rounding, estimating, adding and finding differences.

Our topic for Autumn 1 is Potions

Potion: a poison, a mixture, an aromatic brew, a vapour, a liquid or sticky goo. Welcome to the amazing magical world of potions and their properties. Now scientists, beware. There are some powerful and deadly potions out there, dangerous, unpredictable or tragic (just ask Romeo and Juliet.) Use what you know about materials and their properties to create incredible potions in Professor Hazard’s Potions class. Feeling sleepy? That orange juice did taste a little strange…

Science

In Science, we are learning about changing states. We will look at solids liquids and gases and how they change from one state to another.

PSHE

In PSHE we are learning about our hopes and dreams and how we can manage expectations and achieve them.

French

In French, we will  look at classroom instructions and the weather.

Etudions le français!
