“Every morning, when I enter the classroom, it is so pleasant seeing the amazing smiles and feeling the positivity from everyone. It is always so exciting learning something new, from spellings to something you didn’t even know existed. Having teachers that always believe in you and knowing that you can always count on them to help you is awesome!”
Welcome to Owls
Owls’ class is taught by Mrs Scothern (Mon-Tue) and Mrs Haq (Wed-Fri). At certain times of the week, we are also supported by Mrs Allen or Mrs Fogg. Children in Owls’ class work hard and are always happy to help each other.
Reading – Your child will take a STAR Reader test each term which will determine which colour book-band they are on. We ask that they bring their school reading book home each day and that they spend time reading at home. When your child has finished a book, they will be able to take an Accelerated Reader quiz.
Spellings: Children in Year 2-6 have been given an assessment which will be repeated termly. This gives us a clear indication of strengths and weaknesses and specific areas that need more support. As part of our on-going teaching of spelling patterns and spelling rules, these will be addressed and taught in class. This will give us the opportunity to focus on individual gaps and any common misconceptions. We will provide feedback at parents meetings on specific areas of weakness and any specific spelling patterns/rules that your child needs support with.
PE (PE kit)
PE days are changeable, therefore it’s best to make sure PE kit (including outdoor clothing and trainers)are in school every day. Kit is sent home for washing every Friday and should be returned to school on Monday morning.
Please make sure that long hair is tied up on PE days, and earrings, if worn, are removed.
This half-term Owls class will have P.E. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please continue to send your children to school in their P.E. Kit on these days.
Trips and Visits
We are very lucky to be going on some fantastic trips this year and we will be taking part in some memorable experiences. These include, having a planetarium in our school hall, a visit to Bletchley Park and the Peterborough Museum and we will be selling our own hand-made products in our Mini Enterprise topic.
At the moment, all trips and visits are suspended, following Covid-19 guidelines.
Class Assemblies and Performances
Every term (except for summer, due to our production) we will present a class assembly to our parents and carers.
