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 Monday and Friday. 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).
We are now also exploring 3 x and 4 x tables. I have uploaded resources onto Education City to help the children practice.
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.

Common exception words
Our new topic is Wriggle & Crawl
Grab your coat and pooter – we’re going out and about on a minibeast hunt. Sweep your nets in ponds and lift up logs to see who’s home. Then set up a minibeast laboratory and observe their every move. Add notes and labels and ask research questions, just like a real entomologist. Learn about bees and worms and butterflies too. Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Carry out investigations to find out more, like how far a snail travels in a day and how a spider catches its prey. Then animate to show how your favourite bug transforms from one form to another, perhaps a caterpillar to a butterfly or a maggot to a fly. On your belly, legs at the ready, it’s time to wriggle and crawl.
