Autumn 1




Welcome Year 4 to Maple Class. I hope you have had an enjoyable summer holiday. 

We will be starting the year with a topic all about 'Robots'. 

In English, we will be writing an explanation text involving Wallace and Gromit and the 'Snoozatron'.  Also, we will be reading books about Robots and looking at non fiction texts.

Our SMSC question to be discussed in class is, ' Is it possible that Robots could take over the world?'


In science, we will be looking at electricity and investigating, ' How does the number of batteries in a circuit affect how devices work? As well as building our own Robots during DT Sessions.


Our PE days will be Tuesdays and Thursdays, so please ensure you wear your PE  kit in to school on those days. PE will be taking place outside so please ensure correct kit is worn.


Homework will be set on a Friday and check in will happen the following Friday.
