Welcome to Owls Class!
Owl Class is taught by Mrs Love. Learning in Owl class is supported by Mrs Feddon, Mrs Carruthers and Mrs Whitfield.
This term our topic is Inventors and Inventions. We're very excited to be learning about urban and rural developments and famous inventors from around the world. This half term we will be taking a trip to the National Railway Museum in York as well as developing an invention to keep an egg safe as it falls.
In our science lessons we are learning all about bodies! We have been learning about endoskeletons and exoskeletons, vertebrates and invertebrates and what the human body needs to stay healthy.
This term our topic is Pop Art. Take a look at our gallery to see what we have been up to while exploring colour and pattern...
We've learned so much together in this first half term. In English, we've written biographies of Alexander Graham Bell, as well as our very own imaginative invention stories! Our inventor characters are all unique, and we were inspired in our planning by our class novel, The Imagination Box by Martyn Ford. We were incredibly excited when Martyn 'retweeted' our Home Made Imagination Boxes to the world! In Maths, we've become experts in addition and subtraction, working really hard to show off our brilliant problem-solving and reasoning skills. As part of our topic learning, we looked at lots of old cameras, ordering them chronologically, and even made our own pinhole cameras too! In our learning reviews for the first half term we reflected on all the successes we've already met with, and then set our sights on where we are heading next... Autumn 2, we are coming for you!
We have PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Please ensure that PE kits are weather appropriate as this half term we will be orienteering in all weathers.
Home learning is set on a Tuesday and due back on a Friday- we love seeing each other's long term and creative tasks, especially when they are edible!
Spellings are given out on a Monday, practiced through the week and tested again the following Monday. Super spelling is rewarded with a Spell-Jitzu Belt and our Speller of the Week Award.
