Year 3 Owls

We're the Owls!


We're freewheeling flyers, hard working and wise. We aim high and believe we can achieve!


"You have brains in you head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose."

Hello, My name is Mrs McNerney and I am the Owls' class teacher. What a fabulous start to the Junior School all the children have made! It's been lovely to have fewer COVID restrictions in the classroom for our start of year, being able to sit in groups and work with partners and play with other children outside at breaktimes! The children are enjoying having their lunch at OJS, choosing and ordering every morning what they would like via CYPAD then collecting their choice in the dining room and eating in the main hall. 

I am excited and looking forward to the year ahead! 



Class novel

We have started to read 'Danny, the Champion of the World' by Roald Dahl. 

Harvest assembly with Reverend Kim

It was lovely to welcome Reverend Kim from St. Mark's Church back into school and listen to her special harvest assembly. She thanked everyone for the fantastic contributions of food, which will be given to the Harrogate Homeless Project. 

Fire Service Assembly

Harrogate firefighters Ian and Mark visited school to speak to us all about how they help people and how we can keep safe at home. They asked us all to:

  • Check that we have smoke alarms on each floor at home
  • Press the button to check they work, once a week
  • Be aware of how fire can start e.g. appliances in the kitchen, candles, matches, lighters, discarded cigarettes and overloaded electrical devices. 

National Poetry Day

This week we decided to extend National Poetry Day so that it lasted all week! In year 3, everyone enjoyed reading 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright. We enjoyed illustrating his poem and then added another verse with our own ideas, using the power of three to describe more vividly. Below are some examples of our work:
