Owlets this week

This week Owlets have been learning about how life in Africa is different to life in the UK. We learnt about the Maasai tribe and made collar necklaces.

We have also been busy gardening in the allotment, planting runner beans.
In phonics we have been reading longer words, and had a go at writing what we were having for lunch on Friday.

Lots of interesting learning this week!

Owlets have been busy with their Africa project, making african wildlife out of their hand prints. Can you recognise the animal?

They have secured their number  bonds to 10 as well as developed their sounds into spellings


For Real PE this week they were having fun with the parachute

They then had a fantastic end to the week with some Active Spanish!


Owlets are starting to think about the African continent and have drawn on the outline of Africa.

A very sporty week!

Owlets had a very sporty return to school this week with an introduction to cycling afternoon as well as a golf taster session! Hopefully they enjoyed both of them.


Owlets have worked very hard in creating an alter-ego in the shape of a Superhero. We hope you’ll agree they did a splendid job. On Friday they all wore the Superhero masks that they have carefully made, it was excellent! Here is a selection of their characters as well as an insight to their brilliant name writing.

You’ve already done half a year!

Owlets have had a busy and productive week. They did some excellent writing reflecting on their half term activities. They also made some streamers and went outside to enjoy flying them in the wind that we are currently experiencing! Using their imaginations, they then created themselves as SuperHeroes! Ask your child what they decided on…


Have a good half term break!

Owlets have been busy developing their handwriting and having a go at forming sentences about The Tiger Who Came To Tea. They have looked at the number 7 and thought about Valentines Day next week.

Chicks and Chickens

Owlets looked at the life cycle of a chicken this week and could be heard singing along to Dingle Dangle Scarecrow!

They cleverly turned their hand prints into chickens.

Down on the farm

Pupils from Owlets were busy learning all about the farm this week. They discussed what different farm animals give us and  they sang along to Old MacDonald Had a Farm with percussion instruments and even had a go on the new Glockenspiels!

They made their very own sheep and then tried estimation and weighing using the scales for some of the maths this week.
