Owls Weekly Update - Summer Term 2019

Summer 2

Week 1

The children have been working hard this week in school. We have begun this half term by learning about conversions in maths, with a particular focus on converting units of length (mm, cm etc.). In English, we have been writing dialogue to convey part of a narrative from our class text, ‘Eren.’

The children are looking forward to our residential trip next week; please make sure they have a restful weekend in readiness for a very busy few days!

Notices

This half term homework will continue to be issued on a Friday and due in the following Thursday. There will be no homework issued on Friday 7th June 2019 due to our residential trip the following week (10th-12th June). Homework will resume as normal on Friday 14th June.

The children will have PE on a Thursday this half term so please ensure your child has their correct PE kit in school on this day. At the moment, the children are also enjoying an extra PE lesson with an outside sports agency on a Tuesday. They will need their kits in for this day too until further notice.

Owl class are also going swimming every Wednesday this half term. Please ensure your child has the correct swimming kit in school on this day too. All children require a swimming hat, swimming goggles, swimsuit (girls), swimming trunks (boys), and a towel.

Week 2

 

 We had a fantastic time on our residential trip this week and the children returned to school on Thursday in high spirits as a result. Since we have been back, the children have produced a memory collage of their time at Flatford Mill. A copy of this will be sent home on Friday 14th June with them so the children can share these with their loved ones at home.

 

Homework will be issued on Friday 14th June as normal. This comprises of maths, spelling and a reading comprehension activity. This homework is due in on Thursday 20th June.

 

Next week, the children will be attending the KS2 district athletics on Thursday 20th June in the morning. Therefore, they will need their PE kit and trainers on Thursday and Tuesday 18th June. They will also need to ensure they have their swimming kit in on Wednesday 19th June.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Calder

Week 3

 

This week, the children have been enjoying drawing some sketches of animals, linked to our 'living things and their habitats' topic and finishing off their John Constable paintings. They have also been working hard at improving their athletics in readiness for sports day next Monday.

 

Next Monday (24th June) is sports day. All children will need to wear a t-shirt which matches the colour of their house. The children will therefore need their PE kits in on Monday and Thursday next week. They will also need their swimming kits in on Wednesday.

 

 

Summer 2

Week 4

 

This week, Year 6 attended 'Crucial Crew.' Whilst at Crucial Crew, the children learnt about road safety, healthy relationships, fire prevention in and around the home and finally, keeping safe whilst using public transport. The majority of these talks were delivered by Essex Police, The British Transport Police and Essex Fire and Rescue service.  The sessions were informative and the children said on our return to school that they had found the trip very beneficial.

 

We had a very successful and productive sports day on Monday. The children thoroughly enjoyed this annual event and the sports captains of Owl class were incredibly supportive of their team members! I am really proud of all of the children and their efforts at Sports Day. Well done!

 

Some of Owl class children participated in a cricket match against Howe Green School this week. They played great as a team and all of the children are looking  forward to their next match.

 

On Tuesday afternoon, we were very lucky to be joined by a magistrate who delivered a magistrates talk to our class. During this presentation, the magistrate explained the Criminal Justice System and the differences between magistrate and crown courts.

 

This week, the children have been given their scripts for their parts in our class production. The class production will be performed on Thursday 18th July and there will be two performances on this day; a matinee and evening performance. Tickets will be available soon through the school office for parents and carers of Owl class children.

The children have written their costume requirements into their home school records for parents and carers to read. The children need to bring their costumes in on Tuesday 16th July in readiness for a dress rehearsal so there is plenty of time to get creative at home!

I kindly ask that the children are supported at home in learning their lines and songs. This requirement is part of their homework for the next couple of weeks in the lead up to the class production.

Thank you!

Summer Term 2

Week 5

The children have been working really hard at learning their lines and songs for our class production. Please continue to support your child with learning their lines at home as this is now their main homework task. Only spellings will be issued until the end of term as I would like the learning of lines to be a priority for the children. The children were also lucky enough to be visited by a circus skills company this week who gave the children a flavour of circus life with juggling, plate balancing and more!

Week 7

Summer Term 2

 

It has been an extremely busy yet fabulous Summer term in Owl class.

The children have all worked so hard and achieved lots.

Our KS2 production last week was excellent and we had lots of lovely feedback so I would like to say a huge thank to all of the Yr 4,5,6 children for all of their hard work and a huge thank you also to parents for their support with costumes etc.

Wishing you all a lovely Summer holiday!

Miss Calder
