Please have a look at our Curriculum Pathway
We are so happy to be back in school with a class full of enthusiastic, eager and energetic children. Please keep checking our page for updates all about our learning and what we’ve been up to.
Our unit in Computing is Multimedia. We have been working on taking photos and videos of a close up mystery object and then editing a video in iMovie to pull it all together. We have worked on soundtracks, titles and transitions so far. We will upload the finished ones soon!
As a whole school initiative, we have been completing the Golden Mile. At least 3 times a week, we spend 3 minutes running, jogging or walking around the playground. We are totaling up our laps each week and have already improved our lap counts this term.
We had a great last day of term, linking it all to Easter! We enjoyed writing diary entries as Disciples, an Easter Maths Investigation and some Easter Art both on paper and the iPads. We hope you all have a happy, safe break and we can’t wait to welcome you back to start the summer term.
We waited until everyone came back to school to celebrate World Book Day. We had a day based on the book ‘The Colour Monster’ and wrote diary extracts, did scavenger hunts, listened to stories (in class and on Teams) and collected some data about the class’s favourite colour. We also dressed as our favourite book character. It was a great day!
We practise our spellings in various ways. Today, we worked on spelling out loud whilst catching a tennis ball and creating our spellings in a variety of handwriting.
We had a great time creating Canopic Jars. They were used to store the body parts during mummification. We made ours using a coffee cup 🙂
At the moment, we have three Teams meetings a week where we just have a catch up. Today was saw Theo’s guinea pigs, Beatrice’s garden and Kaden’s Lego model…. I can’t wait to see all your lovely faces again next week!
This week, we’ve started our new Talk for Writing unit, as a task the children had to retell the story using puppets. They could use paper puppets or an app on the iPads to create the story. Here are some examples.
What a start to 2021! We hope you’ve had a restful break and are enjoying home learning and accessing all the lovely resources and activities that we are creating for you to do. We are mirroring the work you are doing at home, in school. We worked hard on our elicitation activity about Ancient Egypt, then we painted some pyramids for our class display. Hopefully you all will see it soon, in person or on Teams!
Well done Owl Class for working so hard until the end of term. We have done so many activities and so much learning that we all deserved a good, fun Christmas Break. Thank you for all our lovely gifts, cards and well wishes… we can’t wait to see you all in 2021!
We worked in our Year 3/4 bubble for a Science / DT afternoon to design and create a Toilet Roll Torch. We worked in pairs to list ideas, resources, draw diagrams before creating them using our knowledge of circuits.
Our science topic this half term is Electricity, so we started off with an investigation to see if we could create a circuit to make the bulb light up. We tried a lot of batteries and wires, but we got there in the end!
To remember the brave soldiers, we created a class wreath and displayed it at the War Memorial. We also listened to The Last Post and paid our respects with a 2 minute silence.
We have a termly reading raffle for excellent reading records. The Reading Records are checked weekly and children are rewarded a raffle ticket for 5 entries with meaningful comments. These were this term’s lucky winners.
During computing, we have been working on Programming. We are using the program Scratch to code our own cartoons. So far, we have created code scripts to allow the sprites to talk to each other.
Using perseverance, Oscar got his pen license this week… well done!
We’ve been looking at clothes in French this week, we can now ask What’s in the wardrobe? and give an array of answers. We can also label our school uniform in French.
Here is the latest batch of Owl Class who have gain their pen licenses. Keep up the good work!
As part of our Light, Sound and Circuits topic, we had a great Science lesson where we created our own telephone devices using plastic cups and strings. We tested them out in the school field to see how far the sound could travel.
We combined Harvest Season and National Poetry Day by performing some Harvest Poems. We talked about the importance of Harvest and why we celebrate it.
As part of our Light, Sound and Circuits Topic, we have been looking at different Inventors and Scientists. We transferred our knowledge of them in to our sketch books and used our sketching and observation skills to create these masterpieces!
We are working really hard on our presentation and handwriting. If we can consistently join with limited mistakes, we are awarded our Pen Licenses. Here are the children who have achieved them this week.
We really enjoyed getting back in to school routines with an exciting Mark Making Week. We used a theme of ‘Ruler Art’ to create different pieces of art, including bookmarks and images on the iPad.
We also produced some fantastic writing, including some poems and an informative ‘All About Me’ booklet, accompanied by some Silhouette Portraits.
