Welcome to Year 3/4 - Owls!
Welcome to the Owls!
Owls is a mixed Year 3/4 class full of children who all work extremely hard, enjoy learning and have lots of fun!
I am Miss Ashton and I am the class teacher. Mrs Gillibrand works with us in the mornings.
The children enjoy a varied curriculum which encourages them to be enthusiastic and motivated learners.
Reading, Writing and Mathematics are taught every morning.
The Creative Curriculum, Science, Religious Education, PE, PSHEE and Music take place at other times during the school week.
These are the topics that we are learning about in our class this year:
Human Body (Skeleton)
Electricity & Circuits
Habitats & Minibeasts
Solids & Liquids
Creative Curriculum –
R.E.- Harvest including Sukkot
Light and Hanukka
God, David and the Psalms
Lent, exploring Easter around the World
Sacred places of worship: Mosque; Gurdwara; Buddhist Temple/Mandir
P.E – Gymnastics, Dance and Games.
The Year 4 children also start to learn to swim at Darwen Leisure Centre. This happens each Thursday afternoon and is great fun as well as teaching them a very useful life skill.
The children are given homework every Friday which has to be completed and returned on the following Tuesday.
The Homework activities can be Literacy, Mathematics or Science based, with children sometimes being asked to find out information about a topic by doing personal research.
Reading books are also taken home nightly, with parents being encouraged to listen to their child read at least 3 times a week. Library books are chosen from the school library every Thursday.
As you can see we are a very busy bunch! Keep checking our class page to find out what’s happening in the Owls.
