Happy New Year 2020
Welcome to Owls Class
Mrs Goodwin, Mrs Barker and Mrs McHugh wish you a warm welcome to Owls Class website. Throughout this year, we will be updating this page with all the latest pictures and information. We hope that you all enjoyed our Christmas production, Children of the World. The children had a great time learning their lines and really enjoyed performing in front of an audience. We are sure you were equally as proud of the children as we were.
In our English lessons this half term we shall be reading The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo this will take us to the velds of Africa.
Our topic for this term is Volcanoes.
Part of our Volcano topic will be looking at tectonic plates and how volcanoes are formed. We shall be attempting to make our own working models.
In year 4 we will be spending lots of time learning all our times table in preparation for the National test all our children will take in the summer. TT Rocks is a great way to challenge yourself and compete against each other. Remember you can access this from home too!
By the end of Year 4 we want everyone to be a times table expert. Good Luck
Cooking Club has been a great success...
Music on Wednesday
This week we are being creative. The children were making their own tunes with the glokenspiels.
Year 4 visited Holdenby House on Tuesday 15th October 2019. The children took their gas mask boxes and identity cards. They were put into 3 groups and experienced a cooking session along with a practical session on repairing clothing, they used scraps to make rugs and wool to make pom poms. The major gave instructions and took us to and underground shelter, he explained how gas masks work for a baby and the children practised hiding under the table.
Black History Month
On Monday 14th October we had a local artist Anne-Marie visiting us to make African inspired coil pots. The children had great fun building up the coils and designing their individual styled faces. Take a look at them working.
We had a visit from Sue to help us set up our hydro veg. Gardening club is already looking forward to the first crop. Both KS1 & KS2 cooking clubs will be using these ingredients to source some of their recipes.
