Exploring Shape

This half term Owls have been honing their geometry skills across different areas of the curriculum. In our Maths work, we have learnt the names of different 2D and 3D shapes and are able to classify them according to their properties. We have used this knowledge to help us with different areas of our topic work such as drawing 3D buildings in our 'Lowry inspired' art work and we had a go at programming the ipads to draw some 2D and 3Dshapes of our own,

Adventure Club

 

Adventure Club has proved immensely popular this term, mostly with Owls Class. We have been busy exploring the local area and have developed our map work skills and understanding of compass directions. We have also found different animal tracks and the homes of different animals and learnt some of their name as well as having an opportunity to simply play and enjoy the great outdoors! We look forward to more explorations next half term!

Owls Saxon Villages

We had some fantastic model Saxon Villages brought in which the children had clearly made a huge effort with. Many thanks to all parents, grandparents who got involved in the building process!

 

 

 

 

Sandfield Farm Visit

 Owls had a fabulous visit to Sandfield Farm last Wednesday despite the wet and wintery conditions. We enjoyed lots of topic related activities such as designing and building our own Saxon houses, grinding corn to make flour and even churning some milk to make butter!

Literature Festival

Owls had a fantastic time at Cheltenham Literature Festival where we saw the poet Matt Goodfellow perform. We have all been thoroughly inspired by his engaging and fun delivery of his poems. The children are now working hard on creating some of our own poems based on Matt's originals.
