Welcome to Owls Class!

Mrs Devereux and Mrs Stoodley


Welcome to the new Owls class page with Mrs Devereux and Mrs Stoodley! It has been great joining this last half term and getting to know the children.

Our Summer term topic is “Is a 21st century child healthier than a stone age child?” We will be learning all about what it was like to live in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, and finding out about how dramatically it has changed. We will experience a day in the life of a stone age child through art, drama and costume. In science we will be looking at plants and animals, focussing in particular at what plants need in order to grow successfully. We will be completing an experiment to investigate this further.

In English, we will be starting the hilarious book “How to wash a woolly mammoth”. From this we will be writing in a range of genres for real life purposes, both fiction and non-fiction. Our Maths focus is to continue with fractions, before going on to geometry and capacity.  It is really important for the children to become faster at their times tables so that they can recall them mentally. Please support them in doing this.

Art this term will continue to be taught by Mrs Morton, and we will also do some stone age drawing to complement our History work. In computing we will be creating a program using Code and learning how to use the internet safely. PE will be taught by Mr Jackson on a Wednesday afternoon and by Mrs Devereux on a Thursday or Friday. Please ensure they have a full PE kit in school.  Homework will continue to be set on a Friday and is due in on the following Thursday.
