Owls - Year 4

Autumn 2

 

During term 2 we will be learning all about Sir Francis Drake and discussing whether he was a hero or a pirate. 

Writing: To begin with we will be using How to Train Your Dragon as inspiration to create a new chapter that includes speech.

Maths: 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. 

Reading: For Whole Class Reading we are currently reading Roald Dahl's classic James and the Giant Peach. Reading for fun at the end of each day we will be reading The Explorer by Katherine Rundell.

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 the legend of King Arthur and creating another legend for Arthur. 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.

 

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