It was  Kindness Week this week and Owls Class have been busy thinking of different ways to be extra kind both at school and at home. They played Kindness Bingo, ticking off kindness activities each day. These included actions such as helping out more at home, sharing more with brothers and sisters, as well as being kind and helpful in school.They also decided to write little messages and pop them inside some of their favourite books in the AR library. Some of the notes wished the reader a happy day, others encouraged them to read the book and enjoy it.

 On Monday Karen England, a professional opera singer came to work with the children. As well as singing to the children and introducing them to opera music, she also taught them some fun vocal exercises andthey learnt how to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in Italian.

Mrs David, our sports coach has also been working with the children again, this time teachng them skills needed for ball games. 

We have also been out and about collecting leaves and looking at the colourful leaves that are still on the trees. The children have created some amazing poems and art work.

  Owls and Kestrels enjoyed an action-packed Roman Day on Wednesday. They all looked amazing in their costumes and took part in a variety of different activities organised by History Off the Page. The activities included: making mosaic tiles, squeezing their own oil from olives,  using traditional Roman cures to heal patients and making  their own wax tablets. They also learnt how to train as a soldier in the Roman Army and had a  feast in the afternoon.

Friday 20th September

The children are enjoying their weekly Dance sessions with our visiting sports coach Mrs David. They are working on producing a dance routine that portrays friendship.

Welcome to Owls' web page. We hope you all had a great summer.  It has been lovely getting to know the children and we are very pleased with how well they are settling into Year 3. 

 The children have all got off to a super start with their reading and are already quizzing on their books. In Key Stage 2 the children read their AR books every day for 20 minutes after lunch. This means that they do need their reading book and reading diary in school every day. 

This term our PE days are Mondayand Wednesday. However we would like PE kits to be brought in on a Monday and left in school until Friday as sometimes we do need to change the day. They also need their trainers everyday for The Daily Mile.
