OWL CLASS

 

Welcome to Owl Class!

 

 

 Owls class is made up of 23 year two children.  My name is Mrs Rutherford and along with Mrs Bradford we will be supporting both your child and you through the next year.   In the meantime if you have any queries please do not hesitate to speak to me or any adult on the door.  

 

 

The children loved watching Alice and Wonderland and were amazed by the backdrops and how they changed.

Learning Week commencing: Monday 17th September 2018

 

In English we will be focussing on:

  • practising our best handwriting
  • word types - nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs

In Maths we will be focusing on place value:

  • partitioning numbers.
  • comparing representations of numbers

In ICT we will be thinking about e-safety, turning on and logging in.

In Science we will begin looking at animals including humans.

We will be focussing on using our growth mindset to help us learn.

 

 

 

NOTICES

Welcome back to School.  The Owls are lovely and have settled in really well.

Owls class Welcome Meeting

For those that were unable to attend please find the power point presentation above.  During the meeting I gave out some useful handouts for spellings, comprehension and hand writing.  If you were unable to attend and would like some or have any questions following the meeting please come and speak to me.

 

Owls Class timetable for this term is stored above.  It highlights the general plan for the next half term, however this is flexible and can sometimes change if special events arise.

 

PE will be on Monday afternoon after half term, please ensure that your children have their PE kits in school all the time and that all their clothing is named.  This term we will reschedule our PE to a different afternoon.

 

Outdoor Learning will begin next Monday afternoon and will run every Monday for the rest of this half term.  If you are available to help and would like to please can I ask that you arrive at school just before 1pm as we will try to leave promptly at 1pm.

 

 

Please can we ask that your child only has one key ring on their bag for identification purposes. With too many key rings on their bags the children find it hard to fit all their bags in their individual tray.

 

Many thanks

Mrs Rutherford, Mrs Bradford

 

 

Show and Tell

Show and Tell will be "What's in the bag" again this year.  Children will be chosen at random.   They will choose a bag, take it home, place something inside and bring it back the following Friday.  They will then be asked questions by their peers as they try to guess what is in the bag. 

 

Mathletics club

Held on a Thursday after school starting Thursday 20th for 30 minutes. 

  • As this club is very popular we have to restrict the number of children who attend to 15, 5 per key stage 1 class. 
  • A sign up sheet will be placed on the classroom doors on a Monday morning for that week.  If your child attends breakfast and you are not their on Monday mornings but would like your child to attend mathletics please email via the office.  
  • We hope that all children will have the opportunity to attend this club at some point throughout the term.

Readers Workshop

Reading takes place every afternoon.  If you are able and would like to help at any time please speak to Mrs Rutherford or Mrs Bradford.

 

 

 

HOMEWORK

 

Reading

Please read daily with your child even if you can only manage a couple of pages, it really has a huge impact.

 

Spelling

Please help your child to learn their spellings.  Using look, cover, write, check is a good strategy.

(Look at the word and individual letters carefully, say them out loud, are there any tricky bits you need to remember?, cover the word up, have a go at writing it, look back at the word and check did you get it right?)  

 

Mathletics

Each week I will put the area we are learning about above.  If you would like to support your child in maths then click on the link to this website below and log in.  Your child's login details are in the front of their reading diaries.  You can choose the relevant topic to work on.
