RH Classes Owls2017-18

Welcome to Year 3, the Owls class!

Owls Spring Term

During the spring term, the Owls studied the Romans and Roman Britain. We enjoyed reading ‘Escape from Pompeii’ and a version of Julius Caesar. Mr. Hammond, an archaeologist brought in lots of Roman artefacts for us to study and we finished the day with a Roman ‘banquet’. We tasted lots of different foods which the Romans would have eaten.

Our Enterprise Afternoon was a great success where we sold lots of the things we had made such as clay coil pots and a quiz which we wrote the questions for ourselves. We sold delicious honey cake which was based on a traditional Roman recipe. We finished the afternoon with a dramatisation of ‘Escape from Pompeii’ which we wrote ourselves.

Next term, we will be studying plants and animals and our story book is ‘The Strength of the Wolf is in the Pack’, an adaptation of ‘The Jungle Book’. 

Owls Autumn 

During the autumn term, the Owls studied the Stone Age. We read lots of books about the Stone Age including Stone Age Boy, How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth and Stone Girl, Bone Girl. We carried out lots of activities including fossil sketching, painting of Stone Henge and a visit to The Stone Centre in Wirksworth where we panned for gems and made our own fossils.
In October, during arts Week, we had an ECO day where we upcycled CDs into colourful mobiles and transformed old books into hedgehogs. We also transformed the junior corridor into a beautiful garden.

Our Growth Mindset afternoon was great and lots of parents came into the classroom and had a go at making the best dot they could. This was based on a book called The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds.
We also got the chance to preform our Christmas assembly based on 'Twas the Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore.
Next term we are looking forward to learning about Romans and their impact on Britain.

Owls Summer Term

The summer term was a very busy one for the Owls! We started off the term with a visit from ’Animal Magic’ to introduce our topic on animals. We met a selection of different creatures including a hissing cockroach, a chameleon and sugar gliders. Everyone got the chance to hold the baby meerkats who stole the show.

Another highlight of the term was the Design and Technology week when we used our book ‘James and the Giant Peach’ to inspire us. We built peach transporters and had great fun testing them in the hall. We also enjoyed trying out the go karts built by Year 6.

In Science we were studying healthy eating and designed a healthy sandwich we could take on a journey. Everyone got the chance to make and eat their design!
