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.

English - We are currently looking at 'Pebble in My Pocket' by Meredith Hooper. The children are really enjoying exploring the text which involves the journey of a pebble - from volcano to beach. They have used their drama skills to bring the book to life. We have also incorporated art and music into the sessions.
 
Topic
 
Geography - The children have identified the seven continents of the world, and are investigating countries within the northern hemisphere, equator and southern hemisphere.
 
Science - The children have been learning about forces needed to change shape, finding suitable materials for a variety of everyday uses and will be going on to investigate magnets and forces.
 
ART - Banksy and Keith Haring are the famous artists who inspiring us to produce a collaborative piece of artwork to decorate the cloakroom.
