Welcome to The Outstanding Owls Class!

 

Welcome to The Outstanding Owls class!

This page will give you some key information about our class and show you some of the amazing learning that takes place. You will also find useful information and links to help support your child at home.  

 

Our Outstanding Owls are taught by Mrs Panting & Mrs Short.

Our class owl mascot is called Twoodle Tweeterson.

 

 

Class Information

 

 

P.E. Lessons

We have our P.E. lessons on Tuesdays. Please come to school in your PE kit on these days.

 

Homework

Spellings

We write new spellings into our Homework books on Mondays (and I will post them on this page) for you to practise at home for a spelling test the following Monday. 

Children are to choose 5 of the new spellings and put these into sentences in their homework book. 

The children must write their own sentences and not copy from an adult. Please use a pencil and concentrate on neat handwriting, capital letters and full stops.  Please bring the books into school every Monday.

 

 

Times Tables

We have a times tables test every Monday alongside the spelling test. Please practice the 2 x, 5 x and 10 x tables with your child. This now also includes division of 2’s 5’s and 10’s.

 

 

Reading

It is really important to read for pleasure regularly at home. Please read the book that you take home from school as well as the books you have at home too. Try to read for a few minutes every day. All children also have books uploaded on Bug Club (Active Learn).

 

TTRockstars and Purple Mash

Times tables are also set each week on TTRockstars and there are also activities and tasks on Purple Mash, which we use for our Computing Curriculum.

 

Term 1

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.

 

See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls. Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim. Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower. Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let’s build a brand new one. Whose is the tallest? Can you measure it? Then dig deep, deep down, making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground. What’s that sound? I hear little hooves going trip, trap, trip, trap, over the rickety bridge. Watch out for the angry troll underneath. He likes to gobble up little girls and boys. Make sure your bridge is sturdy enough to take our weight and get us safely to the other side. And finally, meet three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls, they’ll be safe from the big, bad wolf. No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down.

Twoodle Tweeterson also enjoyed the trip to Lincoln Castle

Term 2

Muck, Mess and Mixtures

 

Let’s get messy. Muck and mess are good. In fact, they're marvellous. Dive in and get your hands and feet all sticky and covered in paint. Play with liquids, squish some dough and check out the slushiest and mushiest foods. Pour, mix, stir, splat. How does it feel to get your hands covered in goo? Make a wobbly jelly and draw with wibbly clay. Write recipes, instructions, riddles and poems – there are loads of scrummy words to describe messy mixtures. Work with paint and other squelchy stuff to create a new gallery space. What will you make? How will you arrange it? How will the gallery make you and your visitors feel? Don’t worry about the mess – it’ll always wash

Street Detectives

This way or that way? Where should we go? Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields? Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed since our mums and dads were young. Perhaps your granny or grandpa went to your school or maybe they worked in the baker’s shop? Make maps and plans of the streets around us, planning our routes. What can you see? What can we find? Whereabouts do you live? Do you know your address? Find out how to write instructions, directions, adverts and learn rhymes all about our community from different times. When the Lord Mayor writes and asks us to help make our street a better place, it’s time to get your thinking caps on and paintbrushes at the ready. Ready to roll, Street Detectives? Get your clipboards and cameras – it’s time to start investigating.
