Happy New Year from Owl Class!
Our first three days back in school were very busy learning all about penguins and creating some fantastic artwork which is displayed in the school entrance.
The children are now very excited about our new cross curricular theme this half term -
‘All the Way to Buckingham Palace…’ and ‘A Step Back in Time…’
We will be focussing on London as our capital city to begin with and exploring all of the well-known landmarks that can be found there. We will be practising our geographical skills by studying maps and plans and devising our own maps with keys. We will need to test out our geographical skills in the classroom, around the school grounds and will soon begin to compare the village of Steeple Morden with the city of London!
We will create a Tourist Information desk in our classroom and the children are looking forward to learning all about the role of a ‘Tour Guide.’
After half term our focus will move to a historical one when we travel back in time and explore what life was like in London at the time of the Great Fire of London of 1666. We will explore the different ways we can find out about life in the past (within our living memory and beyond). We will be looking at the life and works of significant figures in our history as part of this research. More information will follow about this later in the term.
‘A Walk on the Wild Side...’ is our cross curricular theme this term and we will be travelling around the world to find out about how different animals have adapted to different habitats.
We have begun to find out a little bit more about owls to begin with……
Barn Owls are under threat in the wild …. you can find out more information about this by visiting the following website…
We had a fantastic time at Woburn Safari Park!
We saw such an amazing variety of animals on our ‘Road Safari’ and later on our ‘Foot Safari.’ We really enjoyed our session in the ‘Outdoor Classroom’ with our Park Ranger who shared lots of information with us about giraffes and elephants and answered lots of our questions. She was very impressed with the children’s knowledge of animal habitats and adaptations – well done Owl Class!
Here are some of the highlights of our very busy day!
‘A Voyage to the Bottom of the Deep Blue Sea …’
After our learning journey to London last term, we will be travelling a little further afield this term to explore our oceans. This will involve meeting creatures and discussing how this particular habitat is under threat and exploring all the ways that we can help to protect the oceans for future generations.
We are looking to use our geographical and scientific skills and also explore a whole range of art and technology techniques to bring this ‘watery world’ to life!
Please take a moment to look at our ‘topic web’ for this term which will give you more detail.
