Owls Class

Welcome to Owls Class!

We have already enjoyed a lovely first week back to school with the new children being brilliantly behaved and very brave. As another new year begins I look forward to sharing lots of exciting moments from our class with you all, so make sure to keep an eye out for updates. Also, if you ever have any concerns or need a chat please let me know so that I can make an appointment to see you after school.        

 

Our first few weeks at school!   

We have had a very busy start to the Autumn Term in Owls Class. Here a few pictures of us and what we have been doing.

 

The Great Fire of London

We really enjoyed our topic on The Great Fire of London and have made our very own 'Tudor' style houses out of shoe boxes. We learned about where the fire started in Pudding Lane and why the fire spread so quickly! The Year 1`s have been very busy writing their own pet adventure stories in response to our class story Sammy the Street dog who watched the fire happen. Below are some pictures of our Great Fire of London homework heroes! 

 

This week we have been learning the story of The Little Red Hen using Talk for Writing, the children have been using signs during the story telling to help them remember the story. In response to the story we also had a go at making our own bread and talked about whether if the children were the Little Red Hen would they have shared the bread even though the other animals didn`t help!
