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 Gowrley & Mrs Short.
We have our P.E. lessons on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting WB 13.09.21. Please come to school in your PE kit on these days.
We write new spellings into our Homework books on Fridays (and I will post them on this page) for you to practise at home for a spelling test the following Friday.
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 return homework books by the following Thursday so I can mark these ready for Friday's lesson.
We have a times tables test every Friday alongside the spelling test. Please practice the 2 x, 5 x and 10 x tables with your child (there are resources on Education City and TTRockstars).
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).
Education City, TTRockstars and Purple Mash
Children have English and Maths homework regularly set on Education City. This is always linked to the current topics we are learning about in class. 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.

Our new topic is Muck,Mess & 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.
