Welcome 'Wise Owls' to Class 3JW!
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!
Summer Term 2018 - 'River Deep, Mountain High'
Our topic this term has a Geography focus where we will learn about the water cycle, the features and the journey of a river, the names of rivers within the U.K. and worldwide and the biomes that exist within freshwater and lakes. In our DT project scenario, the aim is to build a bridge structure that will enable a community to cross a river. We will investigate which structures are suitable and work as a team to develop a final product. In Science, the first half of the term will be about Plants and the second half we will learn about Rocks. But that is not all! This term will feature lots of other exciting activities... So, let's hope that the weather will improve so that we can take some of our learning outside!
Thank you for your wonderful pieces of homework that you produced as part of the Homework Challenge Grid last term; I could tell that a lot of thought, time and effort went into making all of your homework and it was very impressive! Please take a look at the new Homework Challenge Grid for this Summer Term below. I look forward to seeing what you produce this term!
Novel Study - Summer Term 2018
As you enter the classroom this term, you will notice that our immersive learning environment has transformed into a 'riot of colour' as we embark upon a new novel and author. We will continue to explore the themes and motifs within this particular text and use drama to create and understand the viewpoints of different characters. Plus, there will be some poems and other reading texts which will definitely stimulate your reading minds!
Please keep an eye out for our future work on these texts.
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.
