Welcome to Owls
On this page you can see some of the fantastic things we do in class. As the new term starts, see some of our activities of last year's Owls Class.
Build A Better Holbeach
This term the Owl’s class has been studying the local town of Holbeach. The children started the topic with a 4 mile walk around Holbeach looking at the different types of housing there is and the businesses in the town. They were asked to identify what they saw into housing, business, leisure and public services.
They used their map skills to create their own maps of Holbeach. Following this they decided what they liked and disliked about the town. They then designed a ‘New Holbeach’ with all the amenities they thought were need for the people living in the town.
In DT the children have been looking at how to design and make structures. They used lego to make cuboids and cubes and looked at how to make the structures stable.
They have designed their own buildings which are being made from art straws and card.
Anglo Saxons. Autumn Term
The children are learning about the Anglo Saxons. They will be finding out where the Saxons came from and why they invaded as well as finding out about their life.
The children researched houses and homes and made detailed drawings. They made clay pots and braided wool to make belts.
Outside in the Forest area the children used natural materials to weave and make useful baskets like the Anglo Saxon people would have made.
Coasts. Autumn Term 1
The children in Owls have had a wonderful time learning about coasts in Britain. The highlight of their topic was an amazing field trip to Hunstanton.
On the day the children had a rid on the ‘Wash Monster’ to observe the cliff formation at Old Hunstanton. It was a brilliant ride which the children really enjoyed.
After a ride on the ‘Wash Monster’ the children then made observational drawings of the cliffs and lloked at the different layers of rock.
Then they experience rock pooling on the beach and found a variety of marine life including a range of crabs, small fish and star fish. For some children this was their first time of hunting in rock pools and was the most enjoyable experience for them.
Finally an ice cream from the shop on our walk home!
In geography the children studied the coastlines of Britain and looked at how coasts are formed. They found out that coasts are made by erosion. They produced a range of diagrams and flow charts to demonstrate their knowledge.
In Literacy the children used the book ‘Flotsam’ as a stimulus for creative writing. The whole topic was a huge success.
