OWLS

 

Our topic this half term is Owls. The children have already enjoyed sharing their holiday envelopes with us and are now finding out about the Owls in lots of different stories.

 

Our Literacy lessons this term will be based on the stories of Owl babies and The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark.

WIND IN THE WILLOWS AND ROWING

 

Snowy Owls have really been enjoying our new topic. We have been reading the Wind in the Willows book and have got as far as the Wild Wood chapter.

 

We looked in detail at Badger's underground house and thought what it would be like to live underground. We looked at the part in the chapter when Ratty gets a bit claustrophobic from being underground for so long.

 

We took part in a debate- River living Vs Underground living.

 

Here are some pictures.

TOY STORY

 

Our topic this half term is Toy Story. The children really enjoyed our Toy Dress Up Day , we hope you found our doll dance entertaining!

 

Remember Snowy Owls have an opportunity for 'Toy Show and Tell' on Fridays up until the end of this term. Please check your slip that was sent home before half term with yur child's date on.

 

Our Literacy lessons this term will be based on stories with a toy theme. The children have already read Dogger, focusing on using Time Conjunctions to sequence the story. We are now moving onto using the Disney Pixar film Toy Story as a visual literacy prompt for character descriptions.

THERE AND BACK AGAIN

 

Our topic this half term is There and Back Again - Journeys. The children have already enjoyed sharing their holiday journeys with us and are now finding out about the journey James and his Giant Peach took over the Atlantic Ocean in our class story.

 

Our Literacy lessons this term will be based on the story 'Zeraffa giraffa' by Dianne Hofmeyr. This is the astonishing true story of Zeraffa, a giraffe who was sent on an epic journey as a gift from Egypt to France in 1826.

Well Done to one of our Snowy Owls for creating a game and raising £4.20 for Comic Relief!  We all had fun playing the game on Friday and winning a prize!

 

In Art we have been learning about the history of the Faberge Eggs.

 

We created our own Faberge Eggs by painting polystyrene eggs with metallic paint and then dipping in glitter.   Once dried, we decorated with our own selection of jewels that parents kindly donated.   Don't they look amazing!
