Owls

Welcome to OWLS

Owls is a brand new class this year for our youngest children.

Foundation children enjoy a fantastic space to learn and play, with a classroom, decking area and enclosed outside space.

 

Mrs Mason, Mrs Keene and Mrs Lawrie  form the Foundation Stage team. 

Oxford University Press has a free on-line resource called Oxford Owl which has online books and activities that parents can use from home. There are sections on reading, maths, phonics and times tables.


The website is: www.oxfordowl.co.uk

SPRING TERM 

Our topic this term is 

Ingenious Inventions!

 

We will focus on toys - starting with question

Are toys inventions?

 

We will use stories, artifacts and experiences to examine toys and explore how toys have changed or not changed through the past to the present day. 

 

 

Week 1 - The Naughty Bus - a fantastic story about the adventures of a toy bus. The children loved this story and set up all the scenes.

Week 1 - 3D shape cities - the children worked in pairs to build a city for Naughty Bus to visit.

Dolls through time

Robot fun!

Week 2 - exploring different tops through stories and discussion. We also enjoyed another Mystery Reader!

Week 3 - Art - Printing in the style of Andy Warhol. We are proud of the results.

Spring 2 Week 1 Our trip to Milestones Museum - We enjoyed a 'History of Toys' workshop and loved exploring the exhibits on the museum floor.

Using water colour paints to make pictures of toys. The children looked carefully to draw the shapes and choose the right colours.

Forest Friday - Based on the Story Stanley's Stick - fantastic imaginations everyone. Oh and it was just a little muddy!

We created a class book about our sticks

World Book Day - Owls came as characters from Percy the Park Keeper. We had lots of animal fun and created Percy's hut in the reading corner. We also enjoyed a Mystery Reader.

Even at the challenging times before the school closure came - Owls enjoyed playing outside in some long awaited sunshine.

Land art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy - The children had great fun being artists and created some wonderful masterpieces

RE - We read and discussed the Easter story and reflected on the importance of the cross to Christians. During independent learning the children were challenged to create a cross.

The children have settled into school brilliantly and we thoroughly enjoyed our first half term as Owls Class. This half term we will continue with our topic Our Big World exploring day and night and patterns in nature through the stories Night Monkey, Day Monkey and Animal Boogie.

A chilly Forest Friday this week - but we were creative - making mud faces!

Day and Night

We have used the story Night Monkey Day Monkey to compare day and night. We created firework pictures using mixed media and build a day and night display in the corner of the classroom. 

After our Remembrance service at the church Rosie's mummy talked to the children about her medals from when she served in the army. The children were fascinated.

We used Animal Boogie to learn about patterns and animals in our world
