Hello and welcome to the Owls!
We are a class of 28 children. Our teacher is called Miss Hatton and Mrs Cherry is our teaching assistant.
This year promises to be an exciting, fun filled year. To help you to keep up to date with what is happening in the classroom, we will be using Class Dojo. Further details about this will be coming soon.
In the Owls, our P.E. day is Monday. Please make sure you remember to come to school in your P.E. kit on this day. P.E. will be taking place outside at the moment so remember to make sure you have warm clothes and your trainers.
In the Owls we are Ready, Respectful, Resilient, Resourceful, Responsible and Reflective learners. Each term we will be focusing on one of our Rs. In term 1, we will be thinking about what it means to be 'ready to learn'.
This term we will be starting with a topic called Introducing Me! This topic will incorporate elements of the Science, Geography, Art and ICT curriculum In Science we will be learning the names of the parts of our body and the names of our different senses and in Geography we will be completing a locality study. Our lessons will be focused on what our village is like. We will be drawing self portraits in Art and in ICT we will start to learn about algorithms by writing a program to help us to get ready for school!
In English we will start by looking at writing lists, labels and captions. We will be focusing on writing simple sentences with capital letters at the start and full stops at the end. Our unit will finish with us creating an information booklet all about ourselves.
In Maths we will start off with a number block that revisits and recaps our learning in the Flamingos. It will focus on the numbers up to 10. Within this unit, we will be sorting objects, counting objects, writing numbers, counting forwards and backwards, comparing amounts and ordering numbers. We will also look at representing numbers in lots of different ways, using lots of different apparatus.
I can't wait to get started on our EPIC learning adventure! See you all on Tuesday 1st September!
