Welcome to Snowy Owls
Hello and welcome to Year 1 and 2!
We are the Key Stage One class and work alongside Miss Shuttlewood. As with the other year groups, life in Snowy Owls is extremely busy, where we are always on the go and learning lots of new skills. It is a great place to be! We are very lucky to take part in lots of enriching experiences in lots of different places and you will often find us exploring the local area as part of our learning. We love to see what children have explored and discovered at home as well at school.
Here are what some of the children think of Snowy Owls:
"I like to challenge myself"
"Forest school days good because you get to go in the mud kitchen"
"I like writing and I like joining up."
PE will be every Thursday. Please ensure children's PE kit are always in school fro the half term.
Forest School is on a Monday. Children should come to school in their Forest School clothes.
Reading - Please hear your child read every day as this really does make a difference to their progress. Reading diaries will be checked weekly and children who have read at least 3 times will receive a sticker for their bookmarks. Please remember to keep your reading diaries up to date. The children may like to write the name of the book they have read at home or you can write a comment (Both would be fantastic!) Books will linked to our Little Wandle scheme and will be changed at least once a week. The children will also have the opportunity to choose a book from the class and the library to take home. The children are also encouraged to read through Bug Club as this will have comprehension questions which will support the children with their understanding.
Phonics- Children are to complete the task set in their Phonics home learning books daily and bring in to school each day.
Maths and English – There will be no homework set each week. However, if your child needs more support in an area, the class teacher will supply you with some personalised activities to complete at home.
