Welcome to Owls 2022-23!

Open Afternoon

Thank you to all the families who joined us in Owls for our open afternoon. It was lovely to see the children so excited to share their classroom and learning with you all! If you were unable to visit at this time, please see us to come in at another time and your child can share their books with you.

Visit from PCSO Sue

KS1 were fortunate to have a visit from a local PCSO this week. We welcomed Sue to school to talk about the job of being a Police Officer and how they keep us all safe. We listened to the story of PC Ben and discussed all the different jobs police officers do on a daily basis. The children asked some great questions and showed a clear understanding of how the police help us in our lives. Well done Bats and Owls!

Science-Everyday Materials

In our science lessons this term we are studying everyday materials and their properties.

Today Owls thought about the materials that objects in our class are made from and which properties help them do their job. Her are some of the words we used to help us. Can they explain what they mean to you at home?

transparent

opaque

Art in Owls

Over the last couple of weeks we have enjoyed sketching portraits of the Queen. We then used watercolours to paint our pictures.

Week 2

We have had another busy week in Owls class! On Monday morning we found out that a witch had kidnapped Mrs Sterjo! She had managed to tie her up in forest school. In our English lessons we had to write a story explaining how we were going to help her escape! Luckily she did eventually manage to escape. In maths we have been partitioning numbers into tens and ones.

Week 1

What a fantastic week we have had in the Owls! The children have all settled in well and have enjoyed learning about our new routines. We have enjoyed starting our new topic linked to Castles. The children had a wonderful lesson building a class castle and adding all the key elements and people. The children used books to research castle life. We were really impressed with their team work in this lesson and how they used their creativity to make a drawbridge, battlements and even a dungeon!

Well done Owls.

Please can we remind you to ensure that ALL jumpers, cardigans and fleeces are clearly labelled and remind the children to put them in drawers or bags when not wearing them-we have already had various items of clothing go walkabout-thank you!

 

Welcome to our wonderful school!
