Owl Class - Year 5 and Year 6 

Welcome to Owls. Welcome to Owls. Welcome to Owls. Welcome to Owls. Welcome to Owls. Welcome to Owls. 

Class Teacher: Miss Stevens

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Morton & Ms Frampton

What is it like in Owl Class?

Here in Owl Class we learn about lots of different parts of the curriculum each day including: English, maths, topic, science, French, Mandarin, geography, R.E, RSE, art, P.E (we have P.E coaches come in every Wednesday to teach us) and lots more. Sometimes, when we get the morning learning done, we can do art and other topic linked work. For example we have created: Ancient Greek temples, colour by number (in Mandarin) and a piece of artwork based on mandalas.

We have terrific trips, courageous camp (where you overcome your fears) and in groups you do different activities like canoeing, wall climbing and lots more.

There are lots of jobs Owls can do, including: GEMs Leaders, Office Assistants (where we help Mrs Davis in the office), Reading Stars (where we help others with their reading) and only Owl Class can do these jobs!

You can win weekly awards; like person of the week, seal person, person of the half-term and lots of certificates for Maths, English and other activities inside and outside of school!

⚡️You might belong in Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart, their daring, nerve and chivalry set Gryffindors apart. You might belong in Hufflepuff, where they are just and loyal, those patient Hufflepuffs are true & unafraid of toil. Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw, if you've a ready mind, where those of wit and learning, will always find their kind.

*Lots of authors are now doing 'live' readings of their books using social media. If your child has a favourite author, it could be worth checking out their social media profiles to see if they are offering 'live' reading or similar sessions.  I am aware of the following authors doing live readings-Cressida Cowell, Michael Rosen, SF Said, Ed Vere, Rob Biddulph, A.F. Harrold, Piers Torday, Oliver Jeffers, Tom Fletcher, Chris Haughton and Mac Barnett.

*Greg James has released an audiobook copy of his first book 'Kid Normal' onto audible (and other audiobook sites) for FREE!

*Piers Torday is also giving daily writing hints on his social media pages
