Welcome to Snowy Owls!
We have had a brilliant start to the new academic year.
This term we are delving into the topic of ‘Chocolate’. We will be learning all about the history of chocolate and why it was so important to the Aztecs and Mayans. In Geography we are going to discover where in the world cocoa beans are grown, fair trade and how chocolate is made and processed. We may even be tasting some chocolate!
This term the Snowy Owls will be having 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 tennis lessons every Friday. 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!
