    Owls is a Year 6 class.

    Regular reading should be taking place (at least 3x weekly at home) and recorded in Reading Records. A list of suggested books is available in the additional resources below.


    Reading Records should be brought into school every day. They will be monitored regularly.



    Owls will have PE on a Monday and a Thursday (so they need to come to school in their PE kit). A drinks bottle is necessary. Long hair must be tied up. 


    In the summer, children should be well equipped for hot weather, bringing water bottles, hats and suncream.




    Keep up to date with Owls!

    In Owls, we love to read! We have been set the challenge of seeing if we can read each of these Top Ten books (high-quality texts recommended by former Y6 pupils) over the course of this year. We also have a list of over 50 books suggested for our year group on display so that we have lots of inspiration for our next reading book (a digital copy of this is available in the documents below) 📚

    Reading for pleasure - why not take part in a Reading Bingo Challenge? See if you can tick all of these off by the end of the year! Not only will your reading improve, but you will also gain a wealth of new knowledge, and it will ensure that you are reading a varied range of texts. Reading is fun! 📚

    Why is reading important? There are many benefits to reading. Studies have shown that young people who read every day get better grades in all subjects, including numeracy and mathematics. People who read have confidence and better self-esteem than people who do not read. Reading also improves your listening skills, your ability to express yourself and it helps you to understand and empathise with other people. Reading can also be a great way to relax. There really are no ‘down sides’ to reading!
