SUMMER TERM

We have had a very busy term so far! 

Owls, along with the rest of the school, thoroughly enjoyed the visit from the Raptor Foundation and were able to hold and even stroke some adorable owls. We then witnessed them fly across the hall - and even land on our CleverTouch!

Children have attended two Sports Festivals this year and represented St James' Lower incredibly well, not just with their sporting abilities but also with their teamwork and behaviour.

An enjoyable day was spent in Elstow learning all about the life-path of Bunyon.

Soon, we shall be knee-deep in scripts and rehearsals for our Leavers' Performance as the curtains draw to a close on the Owls' time with us here at St James' Lower. They will all be sorely missed but it has been an absolute pleasure teaching them this year.

 

SPRING TERM

"Wow, what a year we have had so far! Owls have been incredibly busy with various trips including a gymnastics festival, a multi-skills festival, the Wider Opportunities concert, and are very excited about Bikeability and sledging at SnoZone in March!

Having learnt clarineo for twelve weeks, Owls performed very well at the Wider Opportunities concert and did St James' proud. We even have a star in our midst in the form of Alfie who performed live on Radio 2 as part of their 'children doing something new' segment.

"It was fun and entertaining" - Eve.

"I would love to carry on learning how to play the clarineo" - Sophia "Enjoyable" - Ellie "I really enjoyed it, it was fun" - Dylan.

As we head towards Easter we are busy learning our songs and readings for the Easter church service, and hope to see you there!

Now the weather is improving PE is taking place outside once more and the Owls are very excited to be learning tennis skills - watch out Wimbledon!"

 

OWLS STORY TELLING

Owls wrote some short stories in English and had the opportunity to read their stories to groups of Robins and Kingfishers.

AUTUMN TERM

Owls class have really hit the ground running this term!  We've really enjoyed digging in sand for Ancient Egyptian Artefacts, playing sport with the Premier Sports Coach and learning the Clarineo.  We can't wait for our concert on 5th February!

 In the coming weeks we will be practicing for our Harvest Concert in St Albans and St James' Church.  In English we are building up to writing our own stories set in Ancient Egypt.

 Watch this space!

CLARINEO


Owls Class are thoroughly enjoying learning to play the Clarineo.  Here are a few comments of what the children have to say about the Clarineo:

Sofia:

"I enjoy Clarineo because you get to play jazzy music and it sounds cool.  When we play it sometimes, people make the wrong sound and Mr Jones corrects us."

 

Thomas:

“I’m enjoying Clarineo because we get to learn something new that we can play when we are older and when we’re older we can teach little ones.”

 

 

Barn Nativity

On Tuesday 2nd December children from Year 4 went to see the ‘Barn Nativity’ in Clapham. Here are just some of the photo’s of the event.

Eve:

"I like the sound of Clarineo and when everyone tries to play a song that we all know. I also like to annoy my parents with it!"
