We’re the Owls!
Welcome to our class
We’re freewheeling flyers, hard working and wise.
We aim high and believe we can achieve!
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose”.
Oh the Places You’ll Go! - Dr. Seuss
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
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!
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.
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.
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."
