Little Owls 2022 - 2023

Miss Silvester

Welcome to the Little Owls class page!


Our teachers is Mrs Silvester.

We are a reception class within a foundation unit that includes nursery children. In the unit Mrs Silvester is the reception class teacher and Miss Cheesmond is the nursery teacher. Mrs Leek, Miss Fields, Miss Robinson and Miss Brooksbank are our teaching assitants in the unit.

The adults within the unit support all of the children, we are like a little family who care and respect each other. We encourage the children to self-regulate and show respect to themselves, their peers and the space around them. The children are encouraged to believe in themselves and to understand that when they make mistakes this shows that they are learning.

Children’s learning journeys are posted on Tapestry and parents are encouraged to comment on learning or add significant events and observations to their child’s journal.

We look forward to sharing your child’s early years with them and helping to support them to grow, achieve and become confident, independent individuals.
