Welcome to Owl Class!

  This year, we are so proud to have been given important roles within school including: House Captains, librarians, play leaders, members of the tech team and Head Boy and Head Girl. Like the owl, we are trying our very best to share our wisdom with other year groups and to continue being role models for our peers. 

   Within our class, we love to learn and always strive to do our best. We understand how important it is to work together and support each other in being the best we can be.

   We are really excited to see what this year brings!

Books we are currently reading in school

This is our text for the spring term. It links to our theme “Extreme Earth” as it is set in Indonesia during the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004. As part of our English lessons, we will write non-chronological reports based around Tsunamis; newspaper reports based on the main character’s story and persuasive arguments around the topic of deforestation and animal capture.

 

 

For the autumn term, our text is Riddle of the Runes, which is a mystery set during the Viking era. We will use this book to write balanced argument based on the life of a Viking child; narrative retelling parts of the story from different viewpoints and a diary entry stepping into the life of Alva, the main character.
