Mrs Owlett is the class teacher for the Innovators.  

Autumn 2021

Children will develop their confidence in using multiplication tables, ready for their Multiplication test in June 2022. 

We love Reading 

September 2021

This autumn the children have started the year by reading the book, "Journey " by Aaron Becker. They have found it has been a great stimulus for reflecting on how they feel and for creating imaginative pieces of writing. 

In the autumn term we will read Varjak Paw, by S.F Said as it linked to our study of Egypt's history and geography. In the spring term we will be reading "The Great Kapok Tree " by Lynne Cherry. 

RE Curriculum Year Four 

We wholeheartedly follow the Bexley Agreed Syllabus as this reflects that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions presented in Great Britain. This agreed syllabus expects schools as a minimum to provide opportunities for pupils to be taught about Christianity and the five recognised world faiths and also explore the secular world view.  We support this inclusive approach. Read about the Year Four RE curriculum here. 

Below are some documents you may find useful regarding the Explorers' learning.
