Welcome to Eagle Owls!

 

Class teacher – Mrs Claire Nicholls & Mrs Angie Harrison

In year 5, the children work very hard improving their maths, literacy and science skills as well as getting involved in studying their topics. They create exciting pieces of art and enjoy making a range of models in design and technology. They have an opportunity to go on a variety of educational visits.

This year’s topics are Roald Dahl in the winter term, ‘Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum’ (coasts, Treasure Island and pirates) in spring and China in summer.

 

Our trip to The Story Museum, Oxford with Elf Owls

 

On Thursday 30th of March 2017 Eagle and Elf Owls went to the Story Museum in Oxford. We loved this school trip as it was a place where you could let your imagination run free.

Our favourite room was Time For Bed which was a large room with a gigantic double bed inside it! First, you had to brush your teeth, then you put a dressing-gown on. Finally, you could go into the bed. After that we had a bedtime story read to us.

We also went into Narnia and rode on the sleigh pretending to be The White Witch. It was so much fun! In Narnia there was snow all over the ground and there were trees and wolves in the forest. We also saw the lamp post that Lucy and Mr Tumnus met at. It was so cold in Narnia so when we left it was lovely to go through the wardrobe with all of the fluffy coats inside it.

We all really enjoyed our time at The Story Museum and loved all of the activities. If we were invited to go again we would definitely go!

 

Our trip to Chessington World of Adventures

On Monday 3rd April, Eagle Owls went to Chessington World of Adventures courtesy of Merlin Entertainments. To earn it the children of Eagle Owls wrote to Merlin to persuade them to build a Roald Dahl theme park. A few months later Merlin replied with an invite to any of their current theme parks! (We chose Chessington!) We had a talk from a director of the theme park and met a parakeet called Mojo. When we were there we all enjoyed rides such as : Rameses Revenge, Scorpion, Vampire, Gruffalo River Ride, Dragon Falls, Zufari, Kobra, Monkey Swings and Tomb Blaster! We had an amazing class experience!

 

The Wizard of Oz production

Please see the photos of our production of the Wizard of Oz! We gave 2 performances for family & friends and a dress rehearsal performance to the rest of the school. Mrs Turnbull came to do our make-up! We looked amazing and loved performing. We hope everyone enjoyed it! Thank you to Mrs Goodes for directing us and keeping us encouraged and confident. I think we have even surprised ourselves with how good we were!

Notice Board

It is now our busy Spring term with our exciting topic inspired from our reading of Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. We are looking forward to learning about pirates and seafaring in the 18th century.
