Good morning Year 4.Today you will complete another reading comprehension from the Oak Academy, and the final lesson in our measures unit. Also, you have the second part in our science unit of plants, all about recording and presenting observations.


Today’s lesson focus is inference. We had practised this quite a bit in class before lockdown. It is where you need to ‘read between the lines’ and work out what the author is telling you. For example if the author wrote: Jenny’s face was crumpled and tear stained. She huddled down under her blanket ,listening to the constant beat of the raindrops on the window pane, and could not face getting up for breakfast.

From these two sentences we already know quite a few things, such as:

How Jenny is feeling

What time of day it is

The author doesn’t specifically tell us this, but we can work it out from the other details.


This is the last in the measures series from the Oak Academy and I hope you have enjoyed the sessions. You should now be comfortable with the different types of measures and converting between them.


The introduction for this session can be found here:

As mentioned in my science lesson the link for the plant experiment can be found here:
