The Owls visit our school

This week, we had a visit from some very speical guests which included Winnie, Willow, Wally and Mr Wilson. The children from all year groups were fascinated by these amazing and beautiful creatures. They were able to touch and stroke them, feeling how very soft their feathers were and some children were also even able to have a hold of them.

Using an apostrophe to show possession

Using an apostrophe to show possession

Today in English, Year 4 reminded themselves how to use an apostrophe to show singular (belonging to one person) and plural (belonging to more than one person) possession. They practised lots of sentences on their whiteboards and discussed the rules together as talk partners. Finally, everyone looked at plural nouns such as children and men and  how we would use the apostrophe to show possession when using these words.
