Owls Class Yr 1/2

Welcome to Owls Class


We are a mixed Year 1 and Year 2 class.

Our teacher is Mrs Hood. 


Owls is a friendly, enthusiastic class who enjoy learning and love having a story at the end of the day.

Our classroom has changed over the summer ready for our new year together.  I will upload some pictures for you to see when I am next back in school so that you can have a look before Monday.


This year you will be doing more outdoor learning so make sure you always have a coat in school.

I have been finding some loose parts for our learning over the summer and hopefully you will be able to bring some in when you return.  Have a look at the picture below for inspiration.

Home learning will be spellings linked to our spelling rules/phonics for the week. It will also have a maths fluency task. Also remember to read at least 4 times a week.

It will be sent home every Friday and should be returned by Wednesday.


For P.E. I would advise children to wear their outdoor P.E. kit (including trainers) to be prepared for any weather. Regular P.E. sessions with a coach are on Fridays.
