Welcome to Snowy Owls!
I hope you have had a restful summer holiday and enjoyed the sunshine.
I am so excited to be teaching Snowy Owls this year!
We are lucky to have Miss Belcher and Miss Bush as our Teaching Assistants this coming year.
Below is the main information you need to know for the first term.
This term our topic is Ancient Egypt, where the children will learn all about the fascinating world of the Ancient Egyptians. We will be using the books 'Egyptian Cinderella' by Shirley Climo and ‘Secrets of a Sun King’ by Emma Carrol to achieve some exciting writing as well as explore the topic in Geography and History.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.
On top of the homework given out on a Friday, it would be great if you could read with your child at least three times per week and sign their reading diaries.
Spelling tests will be on a Wednesday morning.
PE this term will be on a Monday and Thursday. Thursday’s will be with Mr Sykes. Please send your child to school dressed in their PE kit. PE Kit should consist of the following: navy, black or grey bottoms (shorts/ joggers/ PE skirt), white T-Shirt and navy, black or grey warm hoodie/ top if required.
When the weather turns later this term (hopefully not too soon), please can you make sure your child has outdoor shoes or wellies to change into for break and lunch as well as a waterproof coat every day.
Our cloakroom is very small in Snowy Owls so please can I ask that the children only bring the essentials into school (book bag, water bottle (water only please) and packed lunch), no big backpacks please.
As the children are now in KS2 they no longer receive a snack at school, so please send them with a healthy snack (fruit or vegetables are ideal) for break time.
Please contact me via the office (office @gmilton.org) if you have any questions or there is anything that you need us to know.
Stay safe at home. Remember, there is always someone to listen if you do not feel safe. Follow this link to the Childline website:
