The Owl Class are beginning the term with the topic ‘Volcanoes’. The children are already very excited. This will be linked with science where they will learn about rock formations and fossils. Tied in the volcanoes is a brief look at dinosaurs and how volcanoes may or may not have affected their time on the planet. The children are then off on a trip to the Queens theatre to watch ‘Dinosaur live’
Our English story for the first half of the term is Jack and the Beanstalk. A great story with so much learning that surrounds it. We will learn the story and really get to know what makes it great because for innovating our own story as a class. The final outcome will be a ‘quest’ story written by themselves.
It is set to be a great term. Have a look at other planning documents for a closer look at the Owls learning.
