Welcome to Tawny Owls! (Year 4)

Welcome to Tawny Owls! Mr Gray here, I am really looking forward to the Autumn term and meeting the children. We have some fascinating topics to uncover!

I have provided a list of topics below that we will be completing for Class 4!

Literacy –  We will be reading How To Train your Dragon and completing activities about this. Writing genres will include a character description and an explanation text, 

Science – Animals including humans/teeth

Geography – Scandinavia and UK

Computing – Coding with Scratch

Design and Technology - Adapting a recipe (food)


Modern Foreign Language - French

Art - Formal elements of art (shading and toning)

Music - Developing singing technique (vikings)

I would very much appreciate your support with any homework that is set. Homework will currently be set on a Friday and it will consist of online learning using apps such as TT rockstars. Please email me if your child does not have their logins for any websites.

Your child will complete weekly spelling tests. They can practise these spellings using Spelling Frame as I will be adding spelling lists so that they match those practised in class. These will be set every Friday along with homework. Their test will be the following Friday.

Every Wednesday your child will participate in an outdoor learning/PE day which will require them to wear outdoor clothing and outdoor footwear. This will be starting on Wednesday 8th September 2021.

Please contact me via email (jgray@harworth.snmat.org.uk) if you have any queries or questions surrounding your child's learning This email will not be monitored during the day due to teaching therefore in case of emergency, please contact school directly.

Thanks for your support,

Mr Gray
