Autumn 2017

20th November

Owls Class had a fantastic day at Peterborough Museum today. The children were all Roman slaves and had to work hard preparing for a feast. They went shopping at the market to buy food, then prepared it in the kitchen. They also got the chance to be archaeologists, handling pottery that was 2000 years old. They also made clay faces the same way the Romans would have done. 


Putting on a toga correctly is very tricky!

Since half term we have been learning about the Romans. We have used different sources to investigate what life was like in Ancient Rome and have started looking at why and when the Romans invaded Britain. We are looking forward to our trip to Peterborough Museum on Monday 20th November.

In maths we are working on multiplication and division. We have been using arrays to help us and have discovered that there are arrays all around us. Perhaps you can find some more at home.

Today Owls’ Class had their first recorder lesson. They will be learning to play the recorder and read music during class music lessons up until Christmas. They can use the school recorder they came home with today to practice at home but will need it in school every Wednesday. They will need to return it at the end of term if they decide not to continue learning.

Hopefully all the children will enjoy having a new challenge and this could be a first step towards them learning another instrument as they get older. I will start a lunchtime recorder club after Christmas for those who wish to continue learning. This week at home they should practice holding it correctly and producing a nice, even sounding B note. They have all learnt to do this today and have promised not to make loud squeaking noises at home! 


Welcome to Owls’ class page.

We hope that you have all had a lovely summer. Owls have had a great start to the year. They have settled into their new class very well and are already working hard. It has been great to hear all about their adventures over the summer. We have also been sharing the fantastic home learning they did over the summer and are in the process of displaying it in the classroom.
