Owls class is made up of 14 year one children and 15 year two children. My name is Mrs Rutherford, along with Mrs Harmsworthy and Mrs Barnes 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.

Due to the hot weather we will unfortunately have to cancel Tennis on Thursday.
On Friday can Children please come dressed ready in the their PE kits ready for Sports Day wearing suncream, a hat and have a full water bottle.
IT IS GOING TO BE REALLY HOT THIS WEEK. PLEASE CAN YOU ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILDREN HAVE A HAT AND WATER BOTTLE IN SCHOOL EVERY DAY.
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.
Mrs Rutherford, Mrs Harmsworthy
Welcome to the summer term. Please can you ensure that your child has a water bottle summer hat/ rain coat dependent on the weather. If it is too hot and your child has no hat they will be unable to play in the sun.
Please see the slide presentation below from the SATS meeting.
Summer term PE
We will be having tennis lessons at the Tennis club on a Thursday pm leaving shortly after 1pm. If you are able to help please speak to Mrs Rutherford.
Show and Tell
This term we will be changing Show and Tell to "What's in the bag." Children will be chosen at random, they will choose a bag and take it home 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.
This club is held on a Thursday after school for 30 minutes and is proving very popular. Therefore we are having to restrict the numbers and ask that you sign your child up outside the classroom doors. A new signup sheet will be there every week for that weeks club. We have allocated 5 spaces per class to make it as fair as possible. If your child would like to attend the club it is important that they are able to logon to the mathletics website independently. Unfortunately their just isn't enough time to support 15 children logging on in such a short session. If they are unable to do this yet and you would still like them to come, sign up and please come along with them for the beginning of the session until they are confident at logging on themselves. If you have any queries please speak to Mrs Rutherford on the door.
Reading takes place every afternoon unless we are out for Outdoor learning. If you are able and would like to help at any time in the afternoons please speak to Mrs Rutherford.
Please read daily with your child even if you can only manage a couple of pages, it really has a huge impact.
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?)
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.
