Charlotte weathersWelcome to the Owl Class page. We are a mixed Y4 and Y5 class. Our teacher is Mrs Weathers and our teaching assistants are Mrs Blazer and Mrs Sayer. We are learning French with Madame Brown on Mondays, we have art on Fridays with Mrs Godbold and Mr Colbeck also takes us for PE on Friday mornings. Later on in the year we will be partaking in Samba lessons with Mr Cann.
Throughout the school year we are very busy with lots of exciting opportunities both inside and out of the classroom. We go on trips with the Eagle and Skylark class and enjoy making the most of our school grounds. We have our own outdoor learning area and we participate in outdoor learning lessons. We enjoy partaking in extra-curricular lessons such as choir, recorder lessons and multi-sports lessons.
We are very keen on reading and are constantly updating and improving our class library. We are very excited about this. Throughout the school day, we enjoy reading and listening to a wide range of texts, we recite poetry and love to discuss what we have read. We also work hard on maths. We think it is important to have quick recall of our mental maths facts and practise these regularly. We enjoy writing for a number of different audiences and purposes and are becoming very adept at our knowledge of punctuation and grammar.
In Owl class we are inquisitive and eager to learn about the world around us. We enjoy learning and fully embrace school life and all that it has to offer.

To support our Spring Term topic the children have enjoyed making volcanoes. A fun afternoon was spent making them erupt!!

Early in the Autumn term class Owls, along with Skylarks and Eagles, visited the Castle Museum to support our topic on Egypt. The children met an archeologist who talked about Egyptian artifacts. They were told about mummification and then joined in a “Day in the life of an Egyptian” drama with dressing-up and role play. A craft activity was organised creating Egyptian collars – a vibrant display of these can be seen in the school corridor.

Years 3,4 and 5 recently enjoyed a trip to Norwich Cathedral where the children joined in with a number of activities, including dancing and crafts.
