Autumn Term 2015

Welcome to Owls Class!

In Owls' Class our topic for the Autumn term 2015, is ‘Turn Back Time’

The children will be learning about life in Britain when Queen Victoria was on the throne.

We will investigate the similarities and differences between their own lives and the lives of Victorian children. We will also learn about the different jobs that Victorian adults (and children!) had and how these compare with our lives in 2015.

Owls Class will also learn about about significant Victorian people such as the artist William Morris, the scientist Charles Darwin and the musician Arthur Blomfield.

As well as our topic Owls Class will complete a variety of different learning activities during our 'Australia' and 'My Money' themed weeks.

Homework will be set every Thursday and will include an activity linked to our 'Big Talk' and 'Big Write' focus for the week. Please take some time to talk with your child about their learning as this will really help them to get the most out of their Big Writing session on Friday morning. Please speak to Miss Farrow if you need clarification or help with any homework tasks.

PE days in Owl Class are Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make sure your child has their full PE kit in school as these will be needed in order for your child to participate in all activities.

Our Cooking day is Thursday. If your child has a named container with a lid in school they will be able to bring home their tasty treats. With some cooking activities it may be that the children's handiwork is eaten in school on the day for their snack.
We look forward to sharing our learning with you as the term progresses and we add photos of our work to our class page.
