OWLS CLASS

Welcome to Owls Class 
 
Owls is the home of Year 3 and Year 4. Miss Wakefield teaches on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Piper on Thursdays and Fridays. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Hart, Mrs Kelso and Mrs Barnes.
 
We've got an exciting half term planned for Owls, with our lessons and activities based around the book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers. We've chosen this particular text because it has cross -curricular links which will provide the children with opportunities to address any concerns they have about the world around us (particularly during this difficult time).
 
As a team, we work hard to ensure that a happy, safe and welcoming environment is provided for the children, in which they can learn and grown positively.
 
If you have any concerns, please contact us via the school office.

In Owls this week the children have started to read two brand new books - The wonder garden with Miss Wakefield-and at the end of the week Flotsam with me. Both books have amazing illustrations and I was very impressed on Thursday and Friday with the amount of detailed, descriptive writing the children produced. The Flotsam text seems to really have inspired them!
 
In science with me the children have been learning about animals including humans. This week our focus was on the digestive system. The children really enjoyed our experiment which showed how the digestive system works from mouth to bowels. The experiment was a little messy but great fun. Please follow the link below to watch a scientist do the same experiment. The children should be able to tell you about what happens as the food travels through our systems. Enjoy!
