Y1 – Tawny Owls
Class Teachers: Miss Stephanie Robinson
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Ella Sansom, Mrs Ali Wheeler,
This term the Tawny Owls have been exploring our great queens and investigating castles. So far we have learnt about Queen Elizabeth 1's hectic life and created our own ships. We have made our own castle diagrams and have prepared ourselves for our trip to Warwick Castle.
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.
This term the children will be having PE on a Wednesday and Thursday. 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.
