 WELCOME TO OTTERS

We are a Year 3/4 class and our teacher is Miss Rachel Oliver. 

Autumn 2 Class News

We have had such a busy half term in Otters Class with so many amazing learning opportunities. We started the half term with a virtual geography experience where we wore a pair of wireless headphones to take part in an exciting story telling experience. The story took us on a journey to explore the four countries of the United Kingdom. Our geography learning followed this with learning about South Wales.

In science, we have looked at forces and magnets and ended the term by making our very own Christmas tree magnet. In DT, we have learnt to use Computer Aided Design (CAD) to create a Christmas gift box. We also enjoyed our visit to Wellington Methodist church to support our RE learning, where we worked closely with Shane from the Archie Project. We all thoroughly enjoyed the ice-cream van visit to school too - thank you to our FOBG for this lovely treat! 

 

 

Autumn 1 Class News

What a busy start to the year!

As scientists, we have started investigating rocks and now know the difference between sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks. We loved finding out which rocks are permeable and which are not and have enjoyed doing a different investigation each week.

Our history topic is 'The Stone Age to Iron Age’. As historians, we have used the internet and non-fiction books to find out about life during these periods of time.

Every Thursday afternoon, Somerset Music have been in to teach us the ukulele. We can now play some notes and are looking forward to performing in front of the school during our harvest assembly in October.  

 

 

Remote Learning

If your child is self-isolating because they are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or they have tested positive for COVID-19, they can still access their learning from home, if they are well enough to do so. All remote learning will be emailed directly to you (it will no longer be uploaded on to the school website).

We appreciate that some children may be feeling unwell, and will therefore not be able to continue with their learning at home.

We hope you find your child's remote learning enjoyable and easy to follow. If you have any problems at all in accessing this learning, please do not hesitate to email your child’s class teacher; we are here to support and guide you. Please photograph and email your child's work to the class email address which is: otters@educ.somerset.gov.uk.
