My name is Mrs Ellis and I am the Owls class teacher. Mrs Pilkington and Mrs Rawnsley are the Teaching Assistants in our class. We work closely together to provide an engaging and safe learning environment. In the Owls class we try really hard to encourage and develop, mutual respect, tolerance and an independent working style.

Hello and welcome back! We hope that everyone had a lovely Christmas and would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year from all the team in Owls. As we enter the spring term, we are beginning our exciting “Time Travellers” topic where our learning will be focused around the Titanic. The children will be learning lots of interesting facts about both the ship itself and the events that led to the sinking in 1912.
This half term the children will have Dance on a Tuesday and Gymnastics on a Wednesday, both will be based on the theme of Titanic. As always, please ensure your child has their full kit (named) in school including pumps that fit them!
The children continue to take responsibility for changing their own reading books and have the opportunity to do this each day. Please ensure that you sign their reading record once you have read with them so that we are able to see when they have read at home and are. are ready to change.
All the children had a fabulous time at Whitehall. They worked well in their teams taking part bouldering, orienteering, caving and the zip wire. We were really lucky with the weather and were able to stay outside all day.
A lady from the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust came in to talk to us all about the water cycle. We did a water audit of our school, looking at how we use water in different ways. We also came up with some good solutions for how we could save water in our day to day lives. Have you tried any at home yet?
As a special treat for working really hard on our SATs we went to the park and had lollies. We pushed Mrs Gratton really high on the basket swing and we accidentally knocked Mrs Golden off the balancing wheel. We had loads of fun!
We looked at how we could programme our Beebots to follow certain paths. It was tricky but we persevered.
This is a healthy competition in a supportive environment to support children with their mental maths fluency and rapid recall of number facts.
We've done loads of different activities for Healthy Living Week. We've done extra forest school sessions, had visits and talks by the Fire service and the PDSA, we've had a day of Zumba finished with a danceathon. We've taken part in cross country and learnt how to play rugby and finally we've baked a healthy apply crumble. Yum, Yum!
Wow what a busy week!
We had a very special treat this week, when a member of our class brought his bird into class for show and tell. We had a great time asking questions about the bird, which was called Batman!
We have show and tell every Friday afternoon, so if there is anything your child would like to bring in please feel free to let them bring it.
