Owls 5/6


Welcome to the Owls Class

My school email: patrick.reeve@corringham.lincs.sch.uk

It’s good to be back at school at last! The Owls Class currently has just our 17 ‘new’ Year 6 pupils….well, they are stepping up this September!

I will update this page with news and pictures throughout the month. This September we will be catching up each day with our Mathematics, Reading and Writing Skills. We will be doing lots of our Literacy work through a study of Roald Dahl’s novel, ‘Matilda’and following weekly Maths topics.

Mrs Thorpe will be with us each afternoon to support the Owls Class.

From Tuesday 15th September, Coach Sullivan from MSP will be visiting to deliver PE lessons, so it’s important for all the pupils to arrive in their sports kit.  

We will also begin weekly ‘outdoor education’ afternoons on Wednesdays. It would be useful if the pupils could bring trainers (and warm clothing) for these sessions. Check the weather, we hope to go out even if it is raining.

Other topics for this part of the term will include: (Geography) Mountains, (RE) Hinduism, (PHSE) Friendship, (French) Counting and Introductions. We will begin our new History and Music topics when the Y5 pupils join us at the start of October.

Homework and Reading

We will not be sending homework books out each week. Each week there will be a list of spellings to practice (published here).

Each child is expected to read at home regularly, each day if possible. Often, Year 6 pupils will read books that may take several days or weeks to read. They will be able to chose books at school, but we will ask that completed school books are returned on Fridays.

Finally pupils can continue to use the Times Table Rock Stars website using your log-in. It’s really important that you can recall times table facts and this website has a range of fun games and challenges. (Please ask if you have forgotten your password!)
