Welcome to Owl Class

The children are becoming great picture detectives and are beginning to make interesting stories up. Once children can hear initial sounds in words and recognise the letters they will be introduced to books with repeated sentences to help with the first stages of reading. 


In Literacy we have been reading the story of The Gingerbread Man. We were lucky enough to take part in a dance workshop run by a West End Theatre group. The children did so well at listening to instructions and adding movements to music. 

 We have begun to chop up words whilst writing to try and hear as many sounds as possible.

We are still working our way through the final phonemes from Jolly Phonics. We have begun to try and identify the initial sounds of words and play games such as 'I spy'. This is a game which can be played at home to support your child's learning. You will be able to come and watch your child's phonic session in November.

In Maths we have continued to learn about our numbers and what the numbers look like in different forms such as on dice and the amount of cubes in a tower. When counting we have slowed our counting down making sure we touch every item as we count it to make sure we don't miss any objects out or add any in! 

We have been designing Gingerbread People for our display and used a variety of shapes. We were discussing if the shapes were circles, squares or triangles. 



On Friday children go to Celebration Assembly where a child is picked from each class as a Star Learner to receive a certificate. Children are also encouraged to bring in any achievements to share with the school such as a recent certificate or trophy.

In Owl Class we now have a class mascot called 'Mr Bananas'. Every Friday a child's name will be picked from a pot to take Mr Bananas home for the week. In Mr Bananas' bag you will also find a book which is to be filled with adventures. These do not have to be photographs but could be pictures which the children have drawn. Encourage your child to help you with the writing and they may also be able to do some of it by themselves!
