Y1 – Tawny Owls
Class Teachers: Miss Steph Robinson
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Ali Wheeler, Mrs Ella Sansom
Spring Term 2018
The Tawny Owls have already been working hard this term and have begun to explore the local heroes around us. This term we are going to be looking into people who help us as well as continuing to practise our numbers up to 50 and following the Jolly Postman on his travels.
Just a reminder, in Tawny Owls the children are given 2 books a week to read. This is because it is important to read a book more than once to understand and build comprehension. Each child has their own reading record to be filled in at home and at school. It is advised for children to read every day. Books will be changed every Monday, but please ask if your child would like to change their book earlier.
Within the classroom we aim to read with each child once a week and we enjoy growing in our reading with; guided reading, phonics sessions, literacy lessons and within many other lessons too.
The children enjoyed some Forest School again with Mrs Howlett every Thursday afternoon for the first short half term.
This short term the children will be having PE on a Friday with Mr Sykes. For this they will need to make sure they have their warm PE kit in school with them. PE kit can stay on their pegs and will be sent home for washing when needed, as it is possible for the children to be doing PE on others days in the week as well. Don’t forget to pack socks where the children may be wearing tights in the day!
It has been great to see all of the amazing homework the children have completed so far this year. This term the children will still be receiving one piece of homework on Friday to be finished for the following Wednesday. Alongside this, we will be continuing to give out spellings for the children to have a go at, which are also due in on the Wednesday.
You may have noticed that we have an extra adult in our class! We are very lucky to have Miss Stone joining Tawny Owls for 8 weeks as part of her teacher training course at Oxford Brookes University. The children have been enjoying doing some exciting morning activities this week with Miss Stone and look forward to many more this Spring Term!
