Welcome back Owls

Welcome back Owl class; we hope that you have had a wonderful break and are ready for the new school year.

We have busy and exciting term ahead of us.  Firstly, we are going to study our local area in a combined History and Geography topic.  We will be finding out about how Ruyton XI Towns became a settlement originally and how it has changed over the years by looking at lots of different sources of information such as photographs, maps and census documents.  If anyone has any resources that they feel would be interesting, please send them into school.  In Science, we will be focusing on light for the first half of term and forces for the second half.  Our art topic this term is ‘People in action’ during which we will be drawing and sculpting people moving.  During our RE lessons for the first half of term, we will be finding out about how a mosque can help us to understand the Muslim faith whilst in the second half, we will be reflecting on incarnation.  Through our PSHE sessions, we will be discussing health and wellbeing as well as beginning to look at our relationships with others and how we should live in the wider world.  Our computing time will be spent initially discussing the importance of e-safety then moving onto designing an interactive game and code cracking.  PE sessions with Mr Hughes remain on a Wednesday afternoon and Mrs Henney will teach dance or gymnastics on a Friday.  Homework will continue to be given out on a Friday and bought back into school by Wednesday. Spellings will be given out and tested on a Friday also.

Enjoy the term and welcome back everyone!
