Autumn -  the spider and the fly

This term we will be basing our learning around the book and poem The Spider and the Fly by the author Mary Howitt


These are the outcomes children are expected to meet this half term:

  • To organise their writing appropriately.
  • To use appropriate language choices.
  • Use semi colons, colons and dashes.
  • To use hyphens.
  • To understand how to use passive voice.
  • To develop a bank of noun phrases.


Children will be learning skills in place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division. 

These are the outcomes children are expected to meet:

  • Read numbers up to 10 000 000
  • Use negative numbers in context and calculate intervals across zero.
  • Write numbers up to 10 000 000
  • Read Roman numerals to 1000 (M) and recognise years written in Roman numerals.
  • Order and compare numbers up to 10 000 000 
  • Round any whole number to a required degree of accuracy.
  • Determine the value of each digit in any number.
  • Solve multi-step addition and subtraction problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.
  • Add and subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits, including using formal written methods. (columnar addition and subtraction)
  • Add and subtract numbers mentally with increasingly large numbers.
  • Add and subtract negative integers.
  • Solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and a combination of these, including understanding the meaning of the equals sign.
  • Use knowledge of the order of operations to carry out calculations involving the four operations.
  • Solve problems involving multiplication and division, including scaling by simple fractions and problems involving simple rates.
  • Multiply multi-digit numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication.
  • Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions, or by rounding, as appropriate for the context.
  • Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit number using the formal written method of short division where appropriate, interpreting remainders according to the context.
  • Perform mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers.
  • Establish whether a number up to 100 is prime and recall prime numbers up to 19.
  • Recognise and use square numbers and cube numbers, and the notation for squared (2) and cubed (3).


Children will be learning about different seasonal changes within the year 

These are the outcomes children are expected to meet:

  • Plan enquiries, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary.
  • Take measurements, using a range of scientific equipment, with increasing accuracy and precision.
  • Record data and results of increasing complexity using scientific diagrams and labels, classification keys, tables, bar and line graphs, and models.
  • Use test results to make predictions to set up further comparative and fair tests.
  • Present findings in written form, displays and other presentations.
  • Use simple models to describe scientific ideas, identifying scientific evidence that has been used to support or refute ideas or arguments.
