Week Commencing the 14th October 2018
This week in topic, we've been looking at Dinosaurs and their teeth! We've looked at the different shapes and what they were used for, and then made some from salt dough.
Week commencing 1/10/2018
This week we have been very busy, as usual. In English, we are using a new method to help the children decide what they want to write using a method called Rainbow Grammar where children used coloured cards to build their sentences. Initially the cards are ordered green (the predicate - what the sentence is about), amber ( what you are telling me about the predicate) and red (the punctuation) at the end of the sentence). The children have really grasped the concept and it is increasing their independence really well!
Week Commencing 23rd September
Sorry for the lack of updates so far. We've spent lots of time focusing on getting everyone settled in and into routine in these first few weeks. This half term our topic is Dinosaurs and the children are really enjoying it so far, I hope they are starting to communicate all the new vocabulary they've been using. Many of the children have really enjoyed playing in our new role play area, palaeontologists lab ( and so have we!) - photos to follow.
A big thank you to all those who sent in photos of their child 'getting caught reading'. They sure have made us chuckle.
Bracken Hill's Got Talent
We had two wonderful acts in this year's Bracken Hill's Got Talent and one of those acts came third! The majority of the class joined in and we could not be more proud of them. So brave to stand up in front of the whole school and perform. A fantastic start to our year!
Welcome to Owls 2018/2019
Hello everybody! My name is Miss Clerkin and I am the new class teacher in Owls. I am so excited to be back after my maternity leave and get to see all the children again. Many of the Owls already know me, and I've been so impressed to see how they have grown and progressed in the past year. Helping us in Owls this year is Mrs Tomlinson, Miss Birch and Mrs Campbell, and we're really lucky to have them. Parents are welcome to come and meet the team on Wednesday 11th July, at 3.45 pm and have a look around our learning environment. Hope to see you there!
