Term 1

History and Languages

Our topic this term is 'Where in the world?'. During this topic we will be looking closely at Ancient Greeks. In addition, we will be learning Greek which will link closely with our Ancient Greek work. 




To follow on from our 'Where in the World?' topic we will be exploring space in Science. Within this unit of work we will be discussing the sizes of planets and where they are in our solar system. As well as making models in order to show our understanding even further. Such as scale models of the solar system and an Orrery to explain the movement of the Sun, Moon and Earth.




In English, we will be reading 'George's Secret Key to the Universe' by Lucy and Stephen Hawking. While studying this text, the children will have the opportunity to write in a range of different genres. From setting descriptions to writing in a characters perspective. 




Our first focus in Maths will be Place Value and Number. 

Year 4 Objectives:

  • count in multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1,000
  • find 1,000 more or less than a given number
  • count backwards through 0 to include negative numbers
  • recognise the place value of each digit in a four-digit number 
  • order and compare numbers beyond 1,000
  • identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations
  • round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1,000
  • solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above and with increasingly large positive numbers
  • read Roman numerals to 100 (I to C) and know that over time, the numeral system changed to include the concept of 0 and place value


Year 5 Objectives:

  • read, write, order and compare numbers to at least 1,000,000 and determine the value of each digit
  • count forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 for any given number up to 1,000,000
  • interpret negative numbers in context, count forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers, including through 0
  • round any number up to 1,000,000 to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000 and 100,000
  • solve number problems and practical problems that involve all of the above
  • read Roman numerals to 1,000 (M) and recognise years written in Roman numerals
