Welcome to Elf Owls!
Our teacher is Mrs Johnson and our wonderful teaching assistant is Mrs White.
PE lessons are on....
Tuesday afternoon - outdoor
Thursday afternoon - indoor
Please could you make sure your child's labelled PE kit is in school these days. Even better, leave it in school so there is one less thing to remember! Our PE kit consists of red t-shirt, navy shorts, plimsolls and joggers or leggings for outdoor PE.
Reading count day is on Tuesday. Please make sure your child's home-school liaison book is at school on this day so we can congratulate them on their home reading. We do aim for 3 reads to an adult each week. Please record these in their liaison books. Reading books will be changed on a Tuesday also. However if you feel that they need changing prior to this, please don't hesitate to ask.
English - we are focusing on stories with familiar settings. We will be reading The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Aargggh Spider! We will be given lots of opportunities to write for a range of purposes. We will also be continuing our learning in Rainbow Grammar and our whole class reading sessions.
Maths - we are starting with place value and number. We will be counting, comparing and ordering numbers, reading and writing numbers and looking at tens and ones. We will then be moving on to addition and subtraction.
Science - we will be trying to answer the question "Why are tigers not like humans?". We are also visiting the Yorkshire Wildlife Park to extend our learning.
We have had an amazing first half term with everyone quickly settling into new routines.
In maths we have worked on place value and addition and subtraction completing the half term learning about shapes.
In English we have written a range of different things including stories and poems. We have enjoyed some super stories including "Not a Stick," "The Tiger Who Came to Tea", "Aaarghhhh Spider!" and "Leaf Man."
In science we found out about lots of different animals and had a wonderful trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
I'm looking forward to another great half term with Elf Owls.
In English we are continuing with our Leaf Man work. We will be planning a different journey for Leaf Man and writing our own stories. We will also be using our senses to write autumn poems. The lovely "Meerkat Mail" story will complete our half term learning.
I maths we will be looking at symmetry, sorting and making patterns with 2D shapes as well as continuing our addition and subtraction work.
There will also be lots of ongoing preparations for Christmas including learning songs for our concert. There is also Christmas art day, parties and Christmas dinner (yum!) to enjoy.....
We had a super half term and all enjoyed our English work on Meerkat Mail. We wrote poems, postcards and stories of out own.
In Maths we did lots of learning about 3D shape and money.
We all worked so hard in the lead up to Christmas to create our amazing "Angel Express" concert. Fantastic!!!!
In English we will be starting by reading and writing poems about Winter. This will be followed by work based on "The Jolly Postman" by Allan and Janet Ahlberg.
In Maths we will be carrying on with our money work and choosing coins to make amounts, finding totals and giving change. We will also be working on multiplication and division and learning our 2,5 and 10 times tables.
In Science we are going to be doing a short topic on Winter. As part of our geography work we will be having a walk around Crowle , identifying features of where we live and drawing maps. It's going to be another great half term!
In maths we worked hard on our multiplication, division and fractions. We are becoming really good at our Percy Parker multiplication songs!
In English we read "The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig" and wrote our own stories based on this theme. We also made a start on our new book called "The Tin Forest" and we asked and answered questions about the old man in the story.
In English we will carrying on with our Tin Forest learning and writing diary entries for the old man. We are also going to start a new focus text called "Traction Man". During Rainbow Grammar we will be using adjectives to describe nouns.
In maths we will continue to focus on arithmetic skills.
Our topic is all about growing plants and we will be exploring plants that we can eat by growing our own salad.
