On Wednesday we had our sharing assembly that was all about how the Traditional circus had changed from the Circus Maximus that used a lot of speed and skill in their chariot races, brave and fearless hunters capturing wild beasts and animals that were used for entertainment, and clowns performing very funny balancing tricks.
For the Modern Circus our performers showed a range of beautiful and very graceful skills using hula hoops, poise and ribbons.
We were all really excited (and a little bit nervous) to show our friends and family as we had all worked incredibly hard to get our lines and performances just right.
Lastly, we would like to say a really big thank you to our wonderful parents/carers and friends for helping us learn our lines, reminding us to bring our costumes to school, coming to see us perform and visiting our classroom to have a look at our work. You are all stars!
Please take a look at our fantastic photos...you might even spot yourself!
Owl Class Circus Skills Workshop
This week the circus skills workshop came to Isleworth Town school and we learned a number of awesome and very tricky skills that would usually take a grown up weeks to learn, however Owl Class learned our fantastic skills in one morning! Take a look at some of our photos of us learning how to balance, juggle and most of all having fun.
World Religion Day
Last week we worked with Year 5 Jaguars, who are our buddy class, to plan and design colourful and eye catching posters to recognise World Religion Day. We decided to focus on treating others as we would like to be treated, which is very common in many world religions. We were split into small groups, to discus our ideas and planned our designs. We were allowed to be as creative as we liked and used paint, glitter paint, glitter, colouring pens, colouring pencils and laptops to create our unique designs. We had an absolute amazing time working with Jaguar Class and were very impressed with how grown up and sensible they all were. In fact, we are looking forward to working with them again very soon.
Please have a look at our photo's of Owls and Jaguars working really well together

Owl Class really missed having Miss.Haws watching us but the Gospel Angels did their best and got their wiggle on

The Great Fire of London
This term we learned all about the Great Fire of London, in Pudding Lane on the 2nd September 1666. We found out that the Great Fire was started by a baker named Thomas Farynor because an oven had been left on overnight. In Art we painted boxes and made Tudor houses to recreate our very own Great Fire of London on the field. Year One came to watch London burn and it was amazing!
