Welcome to Snowy Owls class page!
I cannot believe how quickly our first term together as Snowy Owls class has gone!
The children have already been working so hard; writing newspaper articles about missing chocolate, learning about our bones and investigating how to use their number bonds to calculate tricky additions and subtractions to 100. We are now moving on to the topic ‘Inventors and Inventions’ where we are going to spend the term learning about some amazing inventors, as well as creating our own exciting inventions. We will be taking some inspiration from Wallace and Gromit to help us to think like inventors and we will be exploring how scientists made some life-changing discoveries.
This term the Snowy Owls will continue to have swimming lessons on a Thursday.
Don't forget to bring in a swimming kit, swimming hat and a towel! If a child does not bring a swimming hat, they will not be allowed to enter the pool. Children with earrings will need to take them out prior to the lesson or to cover them.
This short term Snowy Owls will also be having Forest School with Mrs Howlett every Thursday afternoon. They will need to bring in some warm and suitable clothes for going outside and getting muddy!
Please make sure your child has a PE kit in school during the week, as some times we may have PE lessons on other days too.
The children will soon be bringing home a list of spellings for the week and a spelling menu. They choose from the menu which way they would like to practise their spellings for that week. Spellings will be given out on Friday for a spelling test on the following Friday.
reading diary to keep track of home and class reading, this and their reading books will need to be brought into school every day. Within class, the children will be taking part in guided reading where they will have the chance to read a book as a group, have a go at comprehension questions and read for pleasure in our class's reading nook.
It has been a brilliant start to the Autumn term, I can't wait to continue our Snowy Owl journey!
