Over the past 2 weeks, we have been celebrating Heritage Week and exploring what makes our community so special!
We have had such an amazing response! Thank you to all our volunteers and parents for supporting this project.
Ian Smith and Kristie White came in from Doncaster Sheffield Airport to share their roles and responsibilities with us!
The children were so well behaved and eager to learn.
Ian and Kristie informed the children about DSA's 20 Year Masterplan, the many important jobs that people do at the airport, and details of destinations that you can travel to from DSA.
The children created David Hockney style Pop Art, which was inspired by their visit and wrote non-chronological reports using the knowledge that they acquired! WOW!
We were also lucky enough to have another parent visitor, Mrs Oates, who shared her role of working for Doncaster Housing Association, with the children.
Mrs Oates talked about how she helps to serve our community every day and why she loves her job so much! Thank you!
In Maths, the children used fractions and division to work out a recipe for flapjacks! The children used the Captain Collaboration Superpower to work in groups and create their own batches.
They then shared their culinary expertise at the showcase, promoting one of our school rules 'Be Kind'!
Today, the children have been given login details for Purple Mash - a new resource that supports our ICT learning. Please explore with your child and try out the activities.
This term we have been focusing on 1066 - The Battle of Hastings and the Normans!
We wrote diary entries and newspaper reports detailing the gory battle!
We have learnt various facts such as Harold Godwinson's brother Tostig died at the Battle of Stamford Bridge, Harold Godwinson (allegedly) died from an arrow through his eye, and the battle itself was not fought in Hastings....but at a village near Hastings called Battle!

We were lucky enough to have our local author Peter J Murray in again this term to share his new spooky book Poppy Warrior.
Welcome to Owls 2019!
Mrs Tolley, Miss Clark and I are looking forward to meeting our new class in September 2019!
Our mission is to create a secure, fun environment in which we can explore and investigate our learning!
We are resilient! We are the Owls!
Here's something to get you started!
A massive thank you to all parents and children this year! It has been amazing. Mrs Tolley and I have received some wonderful gifts and we really appreciate the thoughtful messages.
Welcome to Owls Class!
In our class, we strive to be the best we can. To help us do this, we collaborate and coach each other to maximise our learning time. We love to explore and share our experiences!
We are resilient! We are the Owls!
Mrs Kirsopp and Mrs Tolley.
Well done to Billy this week for demonstrating our Learning Superpowers whilst out in the community.
You are resilient! You collaborated well! You are an Owl!
A big 'THANK YOU' to Mrs Duru and all our adults for making the Year 4 Enterprise event a great success! We had such a lovely afternoon and the children were very grateful that you all could help.
Raffle prizes are at the office and a message on the main website will follow shortly detailing the winning numbers of prizes that remain unclaimed.
We have been investigating the oceans that surround us and their inhabitants. On a recent trip, Owls researched marine life and how these magical creatures have adapted to their environments.
During Heritage Week, we explored local Yorkshire artist David Hockney. We created Pop Art using a template of what was important to us, repeated it as a print and then used bright colours to enhance it.
In addition to this we investigated the 'Joiners Technique'. The children took their own photographs using the iPad and then 'joined' them together. Here are just a few!
Heritage Week - Pop Art!
Can you create your own David Hockney inspired artwork at home?
In Maths, we have been investigating equivalent fractions with sweets. We had to measure and cut the sweets to create multiple, equivalent fractions.
During the session, we used our Learning Superpowers....Major Resilience and Captain Collaboration.
