Owl Class

Welcome to Owl Class
We would like to welcome you to our class where the Year 5 and 6 children learn. Look at our page to see what we have been up to and also keep up to date with the latest news.
Below you will find the Autumn term snapshot and knowledge organiser for your topic sessions. 
We have learned about all 7 countries that make up Central America as part of our work about the Ancient Maya Civilization. 
We made 3D maps using Mod Roc and have decorated them with either the temperature or the terrain. 
Owl Class have been learning all about food as part of their Design & Technology this half term. The children were given the task of creating a Mexican dish that was balanced on the Eatwell plate and would be very delicious. They came up with Quesadillas with a side of Guacamole and Salsa. 
We spent the afternoon dicing, grating, chopping, mashing and squeezing and eventually eating! They were delicious!
We have had the most amazing start to our Roman topic by having a special visit from detectorist, Ryan Wild! He showed us some Roman coins that he had dug up and even we did some searching on the school grounds using his metal detector. Unfortunately we only managed to find a screw and some hot rocks but we are really looking forward to searching again soon!
We have been amazed to find out how much of Europe and Africa the Roman Army took over! We have been developing our map and atlas skills to study the different countries what we ruled by the Romans and how the changes that they made can still be seen today.
We have had a really lovely time learning about the features of a poem using a beautiful book called 'The lost words'. 
We then took what we had learned and created these lovely harvest poems with accompanying art work. We hope that you enjoy them! 
Mrs Martin gave us a challenge this week! The brief was to create a board game which was inspired by the Roman army and their invasions of other countries. The game also had to be informative and needed to be suitable for 6-8 year olds! After a lot of planning, the final products looked amazing. We then tested them out on Fox Class who also had a great time playing them.
Wow! Look how scary this clay art work is of Queen Boudicca. 
We have learned that the Romans liked to create busts after they had died and made themselves look as scary and fierce as possible. As part of our art work, we have been learning how to manipulate and effectively use clay. We took everything that we had learned and made our own clay models of ourselves. Don't we look terrifying?!
