Hello Owls

Posted by Heather Smith in Owls
Thank you to those of you who joined our zoom meeting on Thursday morning. It was such a shame that we lost the video link but it was still lovely to see you all briefly and to hear what you have been doing this week. We will try to arrange another zoom meeting for next week.
Well done to Jake, Ryan, Troy and Samaya for fantastic high scores on spellodrome. Keep practising Owls.
You will be so proud of our Year 1 Owls. Each week we have been practising our phonic sounds through a speed trial race. The first week after Easter it took us 1 minute and 55 seconds to complete. We have practised daily and today we completed the speed trial in an amazing 27 seconds! Well done! This just proves that lots of practise makes big improvements!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend. I think the weather should be nice and sunny.
Take care and speak soon
Love
Mrs Brown

It was so lovely to see and speak to some of you on zoom last week. I am looking forward to this week’s zoom time. It is on Thursday morning at 10:00am. Please join in if you can.
We have been busy finding out more about castles and testing materials to find out  which material would make the best ammunition for our catapults. Soon we will be finding out about Kings and Queens.
Well done to Samaya, Denisa, Jake and Sam for high scores on spellodrome. Keep up the good work Owls!
I hope you are still finding lots of things to do and helping at home by keeping your rooms tidy!
Take care and keep busy.
See you soon on zoom!

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend even though it was a bit wet and windy at times. My poor sunflowers in the garden kept getting blown over by the very strong wind!
I am so looking forward to seeing and speaking with all of you on zoom this Wednesday afternoon at 2:00pm. Please remember to join in so that we can all catch up with each other.
I am very pleased to see that most of you practised on spellodrome last week. Well done to Jake and Samaya for amazing high scores! Keep practising everyone!
Last week we enjoyed making clay models for our castles. We made made princesses, dragons and knights.
Remember to keep looking through your learning pack for ideas of activities to do and the Oak academy website www.thenational.academy for more formal lesson activities.
Take care Owls and we all miss you.

We have had a very busy week planning our next adventure for Sir Gorrell and Aristar from Knights and Dragons Unite. We also had lots of fun making castles and a drawbridge.
Thank you Denisa for sending in pictures of your amazing castle and dragon. They are fantastic!
Spellodrome this week has been a little disappointing. Only three Year 2s and one year 1 have been practising. Well done to Owen, Tyler, Vasilissa and Millie. I hope more of you will be practising this week!

Year one Owls want to tell you that we are missing you all very much and we hope that you can come back soon. We also hope that you are having a fun time at home.
In school we have been learning a new story about Knights and Dragons Unite! Next week we will be writing the next adventure for Sir Gorrell and Aristar! Perhaps you can do this at home too!
In maths we have been working on our number bonds and adding to 20 using a numberline.
We had fun on Go Noodle trying to ‘repeat the beat’ with young Dylan but it got a little fast and we got confused!
Merits for the highest scores on Spellodrome this week go to Troy, Samaya, Amir and Emily in year 2 for scoring more than 3000 points. In year 1, Millie, Jake and Krzyzstof achieved 1000 points. Well done all of you. There are just a few Owls who have not practised for a while – you know who you are!
We made a catapult as part of our castles topic. It was fun. Next week we will making a drawbridge to cross a Moat. Why don’t you try to make one at home too. You will need:
Resources: Create a Drawbridge to Cross the Moat.

A variety of resources such as – plastic bricks, sticks, pieces of cardboard, strips of material,
bubble wrap, lolly sticks, pipe cleaners, playdough, junk modelling, string, pegs, sticky tape,
scissors.

Have fun and send your pictures through the school admin email as we would love to see them.
Take care lovely Owls
Love from Mrs Brown and Year 1 Owls
