General updates for Autumn 2 

 

Eye Factor

As you may know, this week we have launched the Eye Factor in year 4. Children have been put into groups and we are in the process of selecting songs for all of the children. Within the next few weeks, rehearsals will get under way; the children will have chance to think about choreography, costumes and performing on the night! We look forward to the finished performance which will be held on the evening of Thursday 13th December.

Coming up on Tuesday 27th November we will be visiting Peterborough Museum, as part of our Romans topic. The children will have lots of opportunity to understand the Roman way of life and some of the local history.

Welcome to Dolphins class!

 

I am sure that this is going to be an exciting year for the dolphins and that we are going to learn a lot together!

 

Our first topic in the Autumn term is The Romans. We will be considering why the Romans came to Britain, why they were so powerful and the impact they left on Britain.

 

In Maths we will be using the Maths No Problem curriculum, which they have been used to in previous years. Our first topic will be looking at the place value of numbers.   

 

In our science lessons, we will be looking at teeth and healthy eating.

 

Our geography lessons will link to the Romans; where they came from, where they invaded and where they located their desired resources from.

 

In Art and Design, children will be looking at Roman mosaics and designing and making their own Roman shields.

 

Spanish will continue to be taught in weekly Spanish assemblies.

 

Useful information

 

Our teaching assistant is Mrs Sullivan and we will be sharing her with the Pandas.

 

Please note: Our P.E sessions will be on Mondays, so please remember to bring kit on this day!

 

Any further questions, feel free to ask me and I will do my best to help. Here’s to a fun-filled first half term in Dolphins!
