Owls class is in the Lower School and is a Key Stage 2 class, the age of pupils currently range from 6-11 years old.
Developing the communication skills of all our pupils is our top priority, as well as developing their skills in Literacy and Maths and other areas of the curriculum. We all take part in a range of reading, writing, and words, letters and sounds activities each day. We learn the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds and our Literacy is based on the Balanced Literacy approach.
We use a range of PODD books, Makaton signing and electronic devices to support a total communication approach. We encourage the pupils to reflect on their own learning and share in celebrations of achievement.
In Owls class, we aim to deliver a stimulating, broad, and exciting curriculum, which is tailored to meet the needs of the individual pupils in the class and which encourages their interests and independence. We enjoy a range of practical activities to support our learning around a theme each half term to support our learning of Science, History, Geography and other subjects, which are detailed in our termly overviews.
Owls class love to sing and dance and they love to showcase their work in an Assembly to Lower School. Many of them are very keen to use the microphone! The class enjoy their weekly swimming sessions, and some of us go horseriding each week. We have started Food Technology sessions this term in the Upper School, once a half term.
