Happy Autumn Term 2!
I am very much looking forward to the term ahead - we have planned lots of highly exciting and creative activities linked to our WWI and WWII topic, and in December, we will be undertaking lots of fun Christmas-themed learning across the curriculum. I cannot wait for all the fun and learning opportunities ahead! Please keep checking this page for weekly updates and pictures about school life in Owls.
One of our focus areas this term (Science and PSHE) will be learning about sleep. By December, we will be able to:
• list some benefits of good quality sleep.
• explain how sleep can affect wellbeing.
• describe actions a person can take to help improve
their quality of sleep.
Owls have worked so hard this term and I am exceptionally proud of each and every child for how they have settled back into school and done so with enthusiasm, determination and positivity.
I would like to wish you all a happy and healthy half term break, and look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces when we start back for Autumn 2.
Black History Month

You can present your research in any way you like - it could be a poster, PowerPoint, timeline, mini-book or leaflet, biography etc.
Please bring your finished work into school by 4th November so that we can share what you have found out.
In Science, we have learnt that:
