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 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 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. Or perhaps in Slytherin you'll make your real friends, those cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends. ⚡️
