Mrs Tesoriere, Mrs Curtis and Mrs Bullock would like to welcome you to Owl Class!

We hope you enjoy following all the friendships we make and the fun and learning we will experience over the year.

Reminders:  PE will be on Tuesdays and Fridays  

Christmas Inspire Morning 

We would like to thank everyone that came to our inspire morning.  We were so excited to see our parents in school with us.  We had lots of Christmas activities to do all based around Christmas Books that we have been reading in class.  

The Santa Trap

We think the Santa Trap is a hilarious book.  Bradley is a very naughty boy who keeps trying to trap Father Christmas.  We thought we would try to teach him a lesson by making a Bradley trap.  We had to design it and then make it out of recycled materials.  Mrs Tesoriere was delighted to find out that some children carried on working on them when they got home and even painted them.  

Dear Santa

In this book, Santa sends lots of presents but they are all wrong.  We thought it would be a good idea which paper was the best to use.  We checked whether they were waterproof, see- through, or strong.  We then ordered the paper from best to worst.  

The Jolly Postman's Christmas Biscuits

We felt very sorry for the jolly postman, it is always a very busy time for him during the Christmas period.  We therefore thought it would be very kind of us if we made some biscuits for him to keep him going.  We had to weigh the ingredients and use skills such as stirring, blending and kneading.  The trickiest part was breaking the boiled sweets for the decoration.  

Eric the Reindeer Decorations 

We have loved the story of Eric the Reindeer in class, and so Mrs Tesoriere thought we would like to make Reindeer decorations and gift tags.  We used our thumb prints to make little reindeer and then illustrated them with red noses and antlers.  We were all able to decorate a bauble each.

We also made paper chains.  We showed our parents how amazing we are at making complicated repeating patters.  

The Nativity 

We have been learning the story of the first Christmas, ready for our nativity play.  For this activity we had to use the i pad to illustrate a scene or character from the first Christmas.  We could then explore some of the Christmas Apps Mrs Tesoriere had found for us.  After our star rating we have found out that Xmas Booth was the app we would most like to recommend.  Mrs Tesoriere also reminded the adults how important it is that we talk about what we should and shouldn't view at our age.  

Christmas Characters

We have been looking at different Christmas books with Christmas characters in, these have consisted of books entitled:  That's Not My Angel!; The Snowman; Sssh Santa; The Last Christmas Tree and many more.  We created different cone characters based on these characters.  

26.10.18

We have had yet another busy and fun packed week.  We had a visit from a fire officer, an open studio afternoon, celebrations for the forthcoming Diwali festival and a class visit to Victoria Park.  

Botanical Gardens in Victoria Park

We used all our senses to explore the beautiful plants in the gardens.

Exploring the gardens- they were so beautiful

We had a mid morning snack and went for a walk around the park before eating our lunch.

Having fun in the leaves - we even played leaf angels

Fun and Friendship

We had such a great time playing with our friends in the park.

Open Studio and Sculpture Trail

Thank you to all the adult who came to see our open studio in our classroom and our class sculpture along the trail.  We were so pleased so see so many people looking at our work inspired by Paul Klee and felt very proud of all the lovely comments we received.

Diwali, the festival of lights 

We have learnt how people celebrate Diwali and about the story of Rama and Sita.  We completed different activities such as making diwa lamps, listening to Indian music and making our own and dancing.  

We used our fingers and thumbs to shape the clay into the diwa lamps.

Fire Safety 

We had a visit from a fire officer who told us important information that we needed to know about how to avoid fires and what to do if we are involved in a fire.  We learnt all about phoning 999 and stop, drop and roll.  As we were so well behaved we were allowed to go and see the fire vehicle and see the blue flashing lights and how noisy the siren is.

21.10.18

What a busy two weeks we have had, we have had visitors learnt about special occasions and being part of a community project and learning about our seasons, especially Autumn.  

 Autumn leaves are falling! 

 

We have been learning about different seasons, and in particular Autumn.  We went on an autumn walk to find signs of autumn.  We found beautiful leaves of all shapes and colours but our particular favourite was the sycamore seeds- otherwise known as helicopters.

We had a practise visit to a local park with our buddies. Our buddies showed us how to walk along and cross roads safely and how to play on some of the equipment

Our buddies joined us for lunch. They showed us the routines, they opened packets and helped us to cut up food, but mostly we enjoyed having a catch up.
