Welcome to the Owls
Click here for the Owls' photo gallery.
While our learning has to be remote we understand that it is not always possible to attend all the Zoom session. Please attend those you can and do not worry about those you can't. We appreciate you are doing your utmost to support your child's learning but please look after yourselves and your child's wellbeing.

Spring 2 Week 2
Dear all, hopefully this will be the last lockdown letter! I will however continue to send a weekly email, because many parents have said they find this easier than accessing the website for the weekly timetable, homework and spellings. I will of course continue to update the website and add a wider variety of resources than in my emails.
I attach next week's timetables and useful links. The Explorer Power points will include texts of chapter 1-8 and these can be found on the website after each lesson. Next week's morning work will be a variety of timetable sheets. It is absolutely vital that your child has speedy recall of their multiplication tables. Please spend time with your child ensuring that they know them. Supermovers, writing them out, saying them forwards and backwards (1x6 = 6, 2x 6=12) and quick fire questioning is usually the best way.
Padlet, please continue to encourage your child to put their book reviews on padlet. The link for the 100 challenge only allows you to look at the amazing challenges that have been completed. When your child has completed their challenge please email me and I will add it.
Please ensure your child attends the zoom lessons next week, please do not be tempted to relax because it is the last week of zooms. The work we will be doing when we return will be building on next week's work. On that note, please could your child collect a plastic bottle and a shoe box to bring to school, we will be making mini rainforests.
During the week, I will be giving the children opportunities to discuss any concerns about returning to school. Please let me know if there are any particular difficulties that your child might need support with. Please try to reassure your child that although it may seem daunting, they will quickly fall back into the routine. They did so well last time and at least this time they know the classroom routine and they can hopefully remember the sorts of fun we have!
