The Owls are a mixed Y5 and Y6 class, currently with sixteen Year 6 pupils and seventeen Year 5 pupils. Mr Reeve is the class teacher and Mrs Thorpe is the teaching assistant. Mrs Jakins teaches RE and Mrs Benson teaches Brass/Woodwind instruments to the class on Tuesday afternoons. Kieran, from MSP, visits on Tuesday mornings to do extra sporting activities with the class.
We try to make learning fun for each child and we recognise the individual skills and talents that each pupil has. Throughout the year we provide opportunities for pupils to learn and succeed in different ways and offer extra help whenever needed.
This term we will be taking part in a wide range of activities. Our class novel is “Kensuke’s Kingdom” and lots of our topic work will be based around this book. Our History work is about the Ancient Maya Civilisation and we will also be learning about maps. In Science we will be finding out about materials and their properties.
We would like to invite mums and dads in to school to talk to the class about their jobs.
A range of sporting events will take place this term, more details to follow. Many pupils have already had the chance to complete the Bike-ability programme.
This term we will begin our preparations for our residential visit to Dukes Barn in Derbyshire.
