“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 Haq. Miss Bentley will also be joining us for most of the year as a trainee teacher and Mrs Jenkins will continue to work with us. 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: As part of our on-going teaching of spelling patterns and spelling rules, these will be addressed nd taught in class. This ill give u 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/rule that your child needs support with.
PE (PE kit)
This half-term Owls class will have P.E. on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please continue to send your child to school in their P.E. Kit on these days.
Please make sure that long hair is tied up on P.E. days, and earrings/watching, if worn, are removed. Fitness watches are permitted, however, they must be covered by wrist bands (sweat bands).
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 a trip to Harry Potter world in November, a visit form a highway Man in spring and a trip to local lakes in summer.
Class Assemblies and Performances
Every term (except for summer, due to our production) we will present a class assembly to our parents and carers.
