My name is Miss Gratton and I am the Owls class teacher. Mrs Golden is the Teaching Assistant in our class. We work closely together to provide an engaging and safe learning environment. In the Owls class we try really hard to encourage and develop, mutual respect, tolerance and an independent working style.
This term we are going to be learning all about Fire! We will be delving into the past to research The Great Fire of London. We are going to be reading extracts from Samuel Pepys diary and trying to write our own. Writing a news paper report as if we were reporting on the Great Fire and looking at how fire safety has changed since 1666. We are going to use maps to explore how to fire spread and then we're going to have a go at building our own 1666 Tudor houses using the materials they used. What better way to test these materials, to look at their properties than have our own Miniature Fire of London. If you have an information books or things you would like to bring in to show us for this topic please feel free.
For more information on our topic please read our class newsletter below.
This is a healthy competition in a supportive environment to support children with their mental maths fluency and rapid recall of number facts.
We've done loads of different activities for Healthy Living Week. We've done extra forest school sessions, had visits and talks by the Fire service and the PDSA, we've had a day of Zumba finished with a danceathon. We've taken part in cross country and learnt how to play rugby and finally we've baked a healthy apply crumble. Yum, Yum!
Wow what a busy week!
We had a very special treat this week, when a member of our class brought his bird into class for show and tell. We had a great time asking questions about the bird, which was called Batman!
We have show and tell every Friday afternoon, so if there is anything your child would like to bring in please feel free to let them bring it.
