    Owls is a mixed Year 5 and Year 6 class. 

     

    Teacher

    Miss Greenwood

     

    Teaching Assistant

    Mrs Kelly

     

    Homework

    Homework is set every Friday and must be returned the following Wednesday. 

     

    As well as this, regular reading should be taking place (at least 3x weekly at home) and recorded in Reading Records. Children are welcome to visit the school library to borrow books, or may choose from the selection in the classroom. 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.

     

    PE 

    Each week, PE will be on a Thursday afternoon, and a Monday afternoon. There will sometimes be additional PE sessions at other times, so I need the children bring in their kit every day. PE kit must be worn, including suitable footwear. A drinks bottle is also necessary. Long hair must be tied up. 

     

    We are also engaging in the 'Thrupp10' which is daily exercise at 9am, usually involving a 15 minute walk, jog or run.

     

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

     

    Star of the Week

    Every child in Owl class is a star! Every Friday, Miss Greenwood will choose one 'Star of the Week'. The Star of the Week will have been spotted doing something extraordinarily fabulous during the week. They will receive a certificate, presented in front of the class, and a prize from the Star Award box.

    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!
