Owls Class

 
Owls are our oldest children in the school with a mix of Year 4 and Year 5 children. They are taught by Miss Megan Kearn with support from Mrs Jade Jones. They have always been our oldest children in school as many started when the school opened and they are fantastic trailblazers!

A busy few weeks!

The children have been working incredibly hard over a busy few weeks. We have been learning about Alexander the Great and then looking at the Battle of Marathon. The children have already written a letter as Alexander the Great and have also role played the Battle of Marathon. 
In science we have been learning about electricity and have had a go at building circuits including a variety of switches, some have been more complicated than others!
In maths we have been looking at finding the area and perimeter of different buildings on their Greek islands. We have now moved onto multiplication and division where they have been great at explaining what happens when you multiply by 10, 100 and 1000. 
In forest school they all made fires in small groups, they realised that building and keeping a fire going is actually quite challenging, so we will continue practising this next week. 

Marvellous Myths

posted 1 Oct 2017, 12:13 by Megan Kearn

The children have written some amazing myths this week, where they thought really carefully about making them interesting for the reader. They also supported one another to improve at edit each others. 
We had a very muddy forest school session with some very tasty welsh cakes made on the fire. Thank you to all the adults that came to help, we really appreciate it. 

If there are any adults that would like to volunteer either at forest school or to listen to some readers then please come and speak to me.

Thank you for everyone who helped to practise the six times tables last week, lots of the children got stickers for their efforts. This week please can you practise the seven times tables. 

Pots, myths and more

Where did that week go? The children have all been working hard this week planning some brilliant Greek myths and I am looking forward to reading them once they are completed. During forest school the children created some brilliant Labyrinths in groups. There was a lot of team work involved and the designs were really carefully thought out. In maths we have continued to look at place value of numbers and this week we had fun drawing on the carpets to order numbers. 

Please remember to practise this weeks spellings and the six times tables. 

Greek day, dance and RSPB

posted 17 Sep 2017, 07:53 by Megan Kearn

We have had an extremely busy week this week but it has been lots of fun. The class amazed our visitor with their amazing dance skills, looking at choreographing an Olympic themed dance. They were all really enthusiastic and willing to have a go! We also had Adrian visiting us as Archimedes and a Greek soldier. We learnt loads of information about all of Archimedes inventions and had a go at using the Archimedes Screw. The children also had a go at reenacting the battle between the Persians and the Spartans. The children also amazed the RSPB visitor with all their knowledge of habitats and animals. 
In English they performed some Greek myths and were brilliant at taking on their roles confidently as well as adding humour to them. 

Next week we are going to be focussing on the four times table so please try to practise this ready for Friday. 



Welcome to Owls

posted 11 Sep 2017, 00:14 by Megan Kearn

We had a great first week in Owls where the class were really enthusiastic about their learning. We began learning about the Ancient Greeks, looking at the Gods and Greek Mythology. The children created some brilliant collages showing a selection of different Gods. 
In maths we played a Roman numeral game and I was very impressed with some of the children being able to make numbers over one thousand. We also played a rounding game using dice. You can find the rules and sheets on this link: https://nrich.maths.org/10945.
All the children were sent home with a new home learning book this week with the terms homework and their spellings for the rest of this half term. 
Remember if you have any questions or suggestions then please come in and see me.
