Owls

Welcome to Owl Class!

 

 

We are a Year 3 class. In our class we have two adults; our teacher is Miss Nash. Mrs Pullen is our fantastic teaching assistant. We are a friendly, hard working class who love working and learning together! 

Owls have been participating in The Kingfisher Award Scheme (KAS) in the summer term. This provides children with the opportunity to go onto farms to explore the natural world.

We have been creating project work to display in an upcoming competition.... more coming soon!

We had a visit from Warburtons recently. The children learnt about the different food groups and made healthy sandwiches. They also received a special certificate for taking part and took home a goody bag!

Owls Class

Welcome to term 3! This term looks like it is going to be an interesting one.

Already this term, the class have been to 'Forest School' where they had great fun toasting marshmallows and building dens.

We have been practising our spellings; each week the children will be taught a new rule and then have a chance to practise it in class and apply the new spellings into their writing.

Our topic for this term is 'dinosaurs' and we have been researching using the laptops and tablets to find out all about them. We will be using this information to create our own 'non-chronological reports in English.

As part of 'Science',  this term we will be making our own fossils as we are learning about 'rocks' and we will become 'Paleontologists' to dig for dinosaur bones.

The children are learning about 'time' and are using analogue and digital clocks. Please support your child at home with telling the time.

Welcome back everyone!

 

What a busy start to the year we have had. I have been so impressed with the children's effort in class so far this year and their dedication to their home learning- well done.

 

Just a quick reminder to parents and carers that every Friday children need to bring in their warm outside clothes for Forest School and always need their P.E kits on Wednesdays unless otherwise told.
