Hello and welcome back!
Owls have impressed us with how they have settled and begun their time in Year 4. Keep it up Owls!
For our topic this term we are looking at Sir Francis Drake. We will be looking at some of his accomplishments and whether they make him a good guy, a bad guy or something else altogether? Yes he was successful, but at what cost?
Writing: To begin with we will be writing stories with a warning with the main character ignoring the warning. What happens next? Will they learn their lesson the easy way or the hard way? After that we will be moving onto poetry and creating our own Christmas/ Festive poems.
: We are continuing to look at addition and subtraction, with us moving onto length and perimeter afterwards. We will also, time permitting, start looking at multiplication and division.
: For Whole Class Reading we are currently reading Roald Dahl's classic James and the Giant Peach. We are continuing our class book of "I know what you did last Wednesday!"
: States of Matter
: Tag Rugby
: All About Me
PSHE: Think Positive
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.
