Spring 1 Week 2 - posted 19th Jan

Firstly, well done Wise Owls! We share the gold certificate for attendance this week. It is still our target to see if we can have 100% attendance each week and drain the school of the 100% attendance King Edward pencils. That is the dream.

Spring 1 Week 1 - posted 12th Jan

Hello 2018! We've made a flying start to the new year. So much so, it almost feels like Christmas never happened! We have had a few discussions about looking after each other during this January month. Although we are glad to be back at school, we're all feeling those January blues. The children have been lovely to each other this week. In literacy, we have given time to considering what our new year's resolutions could be and have written about them. Maths has seen us revisit place value to get our minds back into the numbers game.

The environment - posted 12th Jan

Our current topic is all about the environment. We have been learning and researching lots of facts. Wise Owls, your task is to write, at least, one fact you can remember from our work so far.

Autumn 2 Week 6 - posted 17th Dec

We are speeding our way towards the end of a very long half-term. The Y6 children, in the past couple of weeks, have been working hard during their assessment week. Their results look very promising and Mr Buxton has been very impressed! Aside from the extremely hard work the children have been doing, we have found some time to enjoy the approach of Christmas. The KS1 nativity brought smiles to everyone's faces on Monday - an impressive performance from the little ones. Also, our school choir sang beautifully in the carol concert on Wednesday evening. The week was topped off with a visit from Rev. Green - sporting a fabulous 'Jesus' hoody! Although Christmas does bring excitement, for children and adults alike, I must say, the children have behaved impeccably in the run up. They've allowed their excitement to show at the right times and they've worked so hard this half-term.

A trip to Drax - posted 30th Nov

The Wise Owls have had an excellent two days of trips to Drax power station this week. We have discovered so many things about how electricity is made and the effort required in order to produce it. It was a wonderful experience - something the children won't forget. It helped bring to life the start of our topic and has given us a greater understanding of the world around us.

Autumn 2 Week 3 - posted 24th Nov

We are flying through this half-term! It's been another roller coaster of a week. Firstly, I want to thank all of the parents and carers that were able to attend on Thursday for our Egyptian performance. The children have really enjoyed this topic and it was lovely for them to be able to show off some of the aspects they've learnt. It is always a pleasure to have you visit our school. Again, thanks for coming in. The performance was fab and the children really show-cased their skills. Some actors and singers in the making!

Autumn 2 Week 1 - posted 11th Nov

Hello! So, our first week back of the new half-term is over. It has flown by but I feel we're all back in the learning mindset. Autumn 2 is my favourite of all the half-terms and I'm looking forward to spending it with your children. They have been as delightful as ever this week and have made the first week back enjoyable. We have finished our Egyptian death masks this week and, I think you'll agree, they look brilliant. I've attached a picture below. I've also popped a picture of the children who received certificates this week. Thursday saw a visit from the Red Cross for the Y6 children. It was great to be given some tips on how to keep ourselves and others safe. The Rotary Club came in on Thursday too. We were very lucky to have some expert gardners, who passed on tips to the children and helped plant some bulbs. Fingers crossed they bloom next spring! On Friday, we had a visit from the Dogs Trust. We were given a few tips on how to behave around dogs that we don't know.

Autumn 1 Week 8 - posted 27th Oct

Another tremendous week with the Wise Owls! I cannot believe 8 weeks have passed so quickly. Your children have been wonderful to work with and I am very proud of each and every one of them. The first half-term is always the hardest as we all get to know each other and understand how our classroom works. However, I'm leaving Autumn 1 feeling like the Wise Owls 2017/2018 are in a good place. Definitely ready for a rest! We'll be eager to get back into it all in November!
