.Owls 2021-2022

Well done to all our new children in Owl class.  It has been lovely watching them settle into their new routines and making new friends.  

Owls 2020-2021

Only 2 more days to go!!  We would like to say how much we have enjoyed teaching you this year.  You have been such a kind, caring and fabulous class to teach.  You have worked so hard and we are really proud of each of you.  We hope you and your family have a lovely summer holiday.  Have fun and stay safe!  Don't forget to continue to read and share books with your grown ups during the holiday. 

As there are only 2 days this week we have not put up a home learning chart.  Below are some ideas in case you do need to self isolate.

Monday

Choose something to do from the phonic section on the class page.

Complete the transition to year 1 butterfly.

Watch Numberblocks, odd and even numbers https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08r2l4d/numberblocks-series-2-odds-and-evens

Can you sort numbers into odd and even numbers.

Tuesday

Choose something to do from the phonic section on the class page.

Create a summer picture using any media you like.  This can be a collage, drawing or painting.

Have a teddy bears picnic.  Choose some of your favourite cuddly toys.  Make some picnic food with your grown up and enjoy.  Afterwards maybe they would like you to read them a story.

We have set a purple mash 2do.  Complete the odd and even to 20 game.  If done you could try the numbers to 100 game.

This week we are going to be taking a closer look at Rainforests and compare them to the woodland environment we have in this country.  If your child needs to self isolate please use the chart below for home learning.  We have also put up a separate section for phonics below.  Please check which group your child is in and choose activities from the correct group.  There are also activity booklets.  Please do a little bit each day.  Little and often is important.  You also have your letter fans and bookmarks to practice too.

Owls 2019-2020

We now have 5 chicks hatched! Watch this space to see how quickly the rest make an appearance.

The children are VERY excited to tell you our first egg has hatched. Happy birthday to our first chick! 

We have been enjoying Science day. 17.3.2020 We went on a Spring Walk and some eggs arrived in our class.

We really enjoyed the science experiments in assembly. Our favourite one was when the empty tea bag was set on fire and then started to float in the air. 

 

The dental nurses from a local surgery came to visit us and taught us how to brush our teeth properly. We know we have to brush them for 2 minutes. 

We really enjoyed our art day on 30th January 2020. We were inspired by Jackson Pollock. 

During our ‘Once upon a time’ topic we came in to find our role play corner was cordoned off as a crime scene... The children were great detectives and used the talking microphones and clipboards to record their findings... someone’s been eating MY porridge... who could it be?

We wore odd socks on anti bullying day. 

Look at how well we are settling into our new class.  We are enjoying exploring new activities and making new friends.

Owls 2018

Yesterday we had a visit from a famous artist, Jo Atherton. She worked with us to produce artwork using recycled rubbish.

Exploring shapes in P.E.

Oh dear! Somebody has made a mess in the role play area.  I wonder who it can be!

WW1 Day

Look at how we are settling in to our new class.

This week we are learning to get better at retelling the story of The Little Red Hen.  The children have enjoyed learning the Talk for Writing actions to go with the story.  We have drawn a story map to help us to remember the story.

This week we have been looking for signs of Autumn.  We enjoyed going to the park and scrunching through the leaves.

Diwali Culture Dau.  We have been learning about Diwali the Festival of Lights.  We enjoyed dressing up in Indian clothes and looking at religious artefacts.  In class we made cards, Diva lamps and rangoli patterns.

We were very excited when the famous author and illustrator, Gillian McClure came to visit us today.  She read the story Prickly Pig and we had fun acting the story using puppets.  We changed the story a little and the fox was about to make hedgehog pizza with poor Prickly Pig.  Luckily the owl, hen, rabbit and cow came to the rescue..

We have been learning to retell the story of Little Red Riding Hood.  We then boxed up our stories writing a beginning, middle and end.

We innovated the story of Little Red Riding Hood.  We decided to change the wolf to a scary lion and the forest to a jungle.  The story became Little Red Riding Hood and the Scary Lion.

We are learning to retell the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  We used the story map and actions to help us remember the story. We have been describing the characters and setting.

Our topic this term is 'The Ugly Bug Ball.'  We were very excited to receive some baby caterpillars.  We are looking forward to watching them grow and hopefully turn into butterflies. 

We are learning the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar.'

This week we are learning about slugs and snails. We have had some special visitors into the classroom to help us find out more.

We were very excited to discover the butterflies had emerged from their chrysalis.  We gave them fresh flowers and sweet nectar to eat.  We had 8 butterflies in total.

Free at last!! The Owl class bid a happy farewell to the Painted Lady butterflies.

Some mysterious paw prints have appeared on the adventure playground.  We went to investigate and found some clues.  We then drew a map of the trail we followed around the adventure playground.  Oh! No! It's a Gruffalo.
