I play, I learn, I belong


                Owl Class


We have been extremely busy in Owl Class and the children have made so much progress. We have a display in our classroom where our independent writing is displayed. This seems to have encouraged the children to be more enthusiastic and independent with their writing. The children are all producing a piece of independent writing each week. We have become far more independent in phonics and have remembered our tricky words much better this half term. It would still be great for the children to practise using them at home.


We have worked hard on number and pattern and have created some repeating patterns with 2, 3, 4 and even 5 units of repeat. We used our body parts to make patterns with sounds and used the objects in our maths area to make patterns too. We plays some games to practise combining 2 groups of objects and practised using the language more, less and fewer. 


We have been thinking alot about space and what we know about it. We have read lots of stories linked to space and have written lots of sentences, lists and words linked to these stories. We have linked our space learning to the dark and night time and have discussed some nocturnal animals.
