Macmillan Cake Sale

Thank you so much to our bakers and cake eaters for supporting our annual cake sale. We raised an incredible £90 for Macmillan Cancer Care.

We have had lots of opportunity to get creative in Owls Class. Here are some photos showing our music performances, painting in art and making boats to test water resistance in science.

Diary Entries in Owls Class

25th September, 2020

This week in Owls Class we have been reading ‘The Lion and The Unicorn’ in English lessons. We imagined we were one of the characters and we wrote a diary entry. We presented these on our own ‘aged’ paper. Take a look at some of our work.

Owls Class New Term

16th September, 2020

Owls Class have had a busy start to the new school year. In science, we have been identifying forces and measuring objects’ weight and mass. In topic, we have learned about how World War Two began and what evacuation was – we have even aged some paper so we can write our own evacuation diary entries! In RE, we have begun to learn about Judaism. For French, we have started to name rooms of the house. As part of our PSHE work, we are identifying how to keep healthy, including hygiene, physical and mental health. During our art learning, we have found out about Robert Delaunay and practised making our own art work in the same style. In maths, we are ordering, rounding and comparing numbers up to ten million. In addition to all of this, we have been focussing on the ‘Here We Are’ book in English and have written informal and formal letters, poems, advice for others and considered the rights people have.

Welcome Back!

About the Teacher

This is my eleventh year of teaching and I feel privileged to call myself a teacher. I am a Maths Specialist Teacher, so maths is definitely a passion of mine. I enjoy making my lessons motivating, exciting and challenging. When I am not teaching, I like to spend time with my friends and family, go on country walks, visit new places and read, or listen to, a good book. Mrs Smithson
