Year 4 - Owls

Welcome to Owls Class page. The teacher is Miss Bryant and our teaching assistants are Mrs Ambrose and Miss Brown. 

Traders and Raiders (Term 4) 

This term the children will be exploring the Dark Ages. They will learn about the Anglo-Saxons, the Vikings and how they changed Britain. Pupils will start the term by taking part in an Anglo-Saxon Day with a specialist teacher. They will then write a recount of the day, showing what they have learnt. The children will then learn about the legend of King Arthur. They will retell this legend in the form of a comic strip. Pupils will then use what they have learnt to write their own legend by creating characters, settings and plot. They will use their research and teamwork skills to gather interesting facts about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings and present these facts to the class. The children will end the term by becoming an Anglo-Saxon or a Viking.

Home learning ideas

Please find attached a list of activities linked to this term's theme that your child could do at home. Pupils will be rewarded with house points for completing some of these tasks. Their work will be displayed near our theme working wall for all the other children to see. Pupils will also be encouraged to share their work with the rest of the class and explain what they have learnt. 


Here are some interesting links you could use at home:

Anglo-Saxon Day 

Roman battle formations. 


The Testudo 

The Repel-Cavalry

The Orb 

Listen to our class song! 

The children have been very busy writing their lyrics for their class song. They used the music from the Jungle Book and counted the number of syllables in each verse to make sure the lyrics matched the original music. They have now officially recorded their song as a single entitled, Us Owls Are Great.

Times Tables 

By the end of Year 4, the children need to know all their times tables, up to the 12 times table. Please encourage your child to practise their times tables by saying them aloud in the car, at the shop – as much as possible to support their mental maths development.
