3M ~ Owls

We’re the Owls!

Welcome to our class

 

We’re freewheeling flyers, hard working and wise.

We aim high and believe we can achieve!

Hello, we are the Owls class. We have all made a fantastic start to the school year in our new class and new school! We are all getting used to the new routines and expectations at the Juniors and are looking forward to a busy and exciting year ahead. In November we will be going on our first school visit with all the children in Year 3 and 4 to watch the movie 'Boss Baby' at Harrogate Odeon Cinema.

Playground Rules Competition

Miss Weir encouraged all children to enter a competition at the start of the new term in 2018 to design posters showing our playground rules at Oatlands. We have a fantastic playground and grounds outside and the rules help to ensure that everyone plays safely and carefully.

The two winners in Owls class were:

Florence Williams and Daisy O'Connell

Christmas Activities

We've had lots of fun preparing for Christmas, from eating our tasty Christmas dinner last week to making cards and calendars and also buying a gift for someone special from the PTA Christmas Gift Shop.

We are very excited about our Christmas party tomorrow. Watch this space!

Spelling Rules with 6G

Year 6 pupils in Mrs Gerry's English group brought their homework to share with children in 3M. The Y6 pupils had been asked to design a poster or leaflet to explain certain tricky spelling rules. Children in 3M enjoyed the Y6 pupils explaining and testing them on the rules!

It’s A Wrap!

In Design Technology today 3M were very busy making their own wraps inspired by healthy eating and ingredients grown, farmed and sourced from the Mediterranean. Children developed their own recipes for their wraps after taking part in a wrap tasting session last week. After a talk on food hygiene and demonstrations on safety using utensils to chop, grate and assemble wraps, children creatively made their own wraps before evaluating them on taste and appearance.

SMSC

Cultural and Spiritual 

 

We look at and sample a range of ingredients from different cultures as well as developing an understanding of the importance of healthy eating. We also understand dietary beliefs in religion, vegan and vegetarian choices and expand our creativity by exploring how ingredients from different cultures can be used in modern food.

Christmas Displays - They’re interactive !

Picture 1

The Owls were busy last week creating pieces for the Christmas displays with the help of India our Arts Committee member and thinking about what they would like their future Christmas wish to be.  Our theme for our board was food and we all decided  our future wish would be no one in the world would go hungry.  Using Design and Technology we have used mechanisms on our board including moving children and oranges that reveal future wishes.

 

A great team effort Owls!

SMSC with British Values

In our future nobody will go hungry, everybody counts, is respected and valued equally.

Violin Concert - Monday 20th November

Violin Concert - Monday 20th November 1
Violin Concert - Monday 20th November 2

On Monday 20th November, all of the children in 3M performed in a Violin Concert for their parents and carers. The children have all been learning how to play the violin since September. Mr Jackman, a specialist Music teacher from Harrogate Grammar School has been teaching the children, as well as the Music curriculum. The children performed eight pieces and answered numerous technical questions with confidence. We are all extremely proud of their achievements. 

Below are some of the thoughts from the children in 3M:

 

"I have really enjoyed learning to play the violin and don't want to stop!"

 

"I think it's really good that we learn to play an instrument at our new school."

 

"It was brilliant seeing our mums and dads watching us. I felt very proud!"

 

"At first when I played it was really screechy. Now I am much better."
