Welcome to Owls' Class Page

Teaching Assistant:

Autumn Term 2021


The topic this term is ‘Animal Magic!’ we will use a variety of methods (e.g. maps, Google earth, globes and internet research) to find out about animals and zoos all over the world. We will explore the climate in different places and learn that animals’ physical appearance reflects their habitat. We will learn the seven continents of the world. Later we will learn about Bonfire Night by learning about The Gunpowder Plot. In Music, we will learn songs about animals and will experiment with changing rhymes and songs. In Art, we will create a sketchbook and practise using a range of media to explore animal patterns. To   enhance the children’s learning, we plan to visit Chester Zoo. In art, we will look at famous artists such as Henri Rousseau, Franz Marc and Pablo Picasso. In Design Technology, we will explore moving books and will design, make and evaluate our own animal themed book. The children will regularly use computers and will learn how to stay safe when using the internet.





Spellzone - to help encourage spellings, we have set the children up on a programme called ‘Spell Zone.’ This is a fantastic resource, which helps children with their spellings. There are lots of different games on spell zone that are set to your child’s ability. Their login and password has been given to them. Please let us know if you have not received it.
