Wise Owls 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Wise Owls

Hello, my name is Miss. Tither and I'm the teacher of the Year 5 and 6 children in the Wise Owls class. Our teaching assistants are Mrs. Showering and Mrs. Parkinson. We also have special support assistants Miss. Duffy and Mrs. Taylor, with our volunteer teaching assistant Mrs. McManus. On a Wednesday afternoon, during teachers' PPA time, Mrs. Showering leads the class. Currently, we have a class size of 26.

In Wise Owls, we aim to build upon the knowledge and skills learned in Eager Beavers. Each half term we have a new theme, tailored to the interests of the children. We ensure that learning is as active as possible and that children always know the next steps in their learning. We manage this through the following:

  • Focused group teaching
  • Valuing each child
  • Activities differentiated to meet the needs of each learner

This half term, our topic is 'Amazon Adventure'. In Science we are learning about the life cycles of different animals. In Art, we are looking at jungle artwork to eventually create our own prints and observational drawings. The topic for RE this half term is all about Christianity and the Holy Trinity.

Reading is expected on a daily basis. Homework is given out every Friday and is due back the following Wednesday. Regular updates about our learning and information for parents will be posted on Seesaw; this is the main point of communication.

PE kit is required for Tuesday and Thursday.

Please have a look through the news, blog and gallery sections to see what our children have been doing.
