Welcome 'Wise Owls' to Class 3JW!
I hope that you have had a wonderful summer break and you're looking forward to beginning your first year as a Junior! I can't wait to begin our learning journey together, and I hope that you are just as ready to work hard, have fun and learn with me as well.
See you in September!
Our class theme
The theme for our class this year is 'Wise Owls'. Our class mascot is Otis the Barn Owl, whose wide, emerald green, sparkly eyes will be keeping an eye on your excellent attitude, behaviour and fantastic work that you produce throughout the year. Each week, I will choose a 'Star of the Week' based on the qualities that Oscar is looking for too. If you are Star of the Week, you will have the chance to take Otis home and have a weekend of adventures!
Autumn Term 2017 - 'Stone Age to Roman Britain'
The classroom has been transformed! It is fresh, vibrant and ready for a new set of eager wise owls to come inside and learn. Our reading corner has become an unusual but very inviting area of the classroom and I have no doubt that you will want to spend plenty of time in there this year! We will begin the term with some poetry writing, where the 'Our Poetree' board is ready to display your wonderful, creative poems.
This term, we have a History focus where we will be moving from the Stone Age through to The Romans! To bring this learning to life, we have a very exciting trip planned to 'The Lunt' Roman Fort, where the children will dress up and become Roman soldiers for the day, performing the drills that soldiers would have once carried out. Please keep an eye out for photos of our trip!
Have a look at the Homework Challenge Grids in the folder below for some fantastic opportunities for you to research these two very interesting historical periods even more. I look forward to seeing what creative and interesting pieces of work you produce!
P.E Days: Please remember to bring in your PE kit for PE lessons on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Children with pierced ears must be able to remove their earrings, or come to school without them in. Staff are not permitted to remove them.
If you have any questions or you're unsure about anything, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me.
3JW's visit to Grimm and Co - 13th September 2016
Have a look below at some of the pictures from when we visited Grimm and Co. We were amazed to see what was behind the shelves! We loved it especially when Miss Wells, Mrs McCarthy, Mr Kitchen and Mrs Smith had their creative imaginations dusted and oiled! We wrote a whole class story called 'The Popstar Cat' and then we could write our own endings to the stories. Before we left, and to remember our magical day, we took home our very own copy of our story. Afterwards, we visited the main library in Rotherham.
