Yr1 – Tawny Owls


Class Teacher: Miss Lois MacDonald

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Ella Sansom


Welcome to Tawny Owls' Class page!


We have been very busy in the first few weeks of the brand new school year. The Tawny Owls have settled in fantastically!


We looking forward to delving into all of our topics.





In English this term, we will be exploring the story of The Storm Whale. We will be using this story within our English lessons but also in relation to our term Topic of Islands.



In Tawny Owls the children are given 3-4 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. 


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 Friday and this will be with Mr Sykes outside, therefore children will need jogging trousers, PE top, warm jumper and trainers. 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 if your child is wearing tights on that day!



Tawny Owls receive one piece of homework a week in their homework books. The homework is based around a topic we have been learning about. This could be in any subject. Homework is given out on Friday and is due back in on a Wednesday


I thoroughly look forward to a brilliant autumn term with the Tawny Owls!
