Owls - Year 4

Autumn 1


Medieval England


Welcome to Owls' class page.


Owls class have a made a busy start to our topic: Medieval England.


In our writing we have been looking at writing a narrative with a focus on description. The children will be focusing on using adjectives and similes to add detail to their stories. Following this we will be writing a biography about a "Great" person from Medieval. We will be writing a biography about King Alfred the Great and seeing if he's as "great" as he is said to be. We will be looking at the features of a biography, what makes a WAGOLL and whether the target audience, children, enjoy reading them and learn something from them.


We have begun our reading lessons by exploring Charlotte's Web - which the children have really enjoyed so far. Throughout all of our reading lessons, we will be focusing on using our VIPERs reading skills. These skills are vocabulary, inference, prediction, explain, retrieve and summarise. 


In maths we will be spending quite a bit of time on place value, and then moving onto addition and subtraction. All the while, we'll be recapping times tables we have learnt in previous years.

French: Getting to know you

PE: Fitness

The children have made a good start and settled nicely and we are all looking forward to the year ahead.
