Hello and Welcome to the Owls class. There are 27 children in our class. Mrs Howard is the Class Teacher and Mrs Cherry is the Teaching Assistant. Please follow us on Twitter @Owlsketton
EPIC learning - Barry now has a completed 'Fishatron 3000' vehicle in which he plans to travel around our amazing planet. We will help him do this by earning fuel through our work on the 6 Rs - being ready, resilient, responsible, resourceful, reflective and respectful. Our focus for Term 1 is being "ready for learning".
Our first topic is called "Marvellous Me" where we will be identifying and naming parts of the body and exploring our 5 senses in Science. We will look at how we have changed from babies to now and look at how our life is different to our parents and Grandparents.
PE lessons will be on a Monday and a Thursday this year. Please can PE kits be in school on those days, with plimsolls for indoor PE and trainers for PE outside.
The very popular reading challenge will continue this year. Each time your child reads for 10 minutes - either their school reading book, or a book from home/the library - this can be recorded in their reading record book. When they reach 50 reads they receive a bronze star in a special assembly which parents are invited to. 100 reads earns a silver star and 150 reads earns a gold star! We find this really motivates the children in their early stages of reading, and your support with this at home is greatly appreciated.
