Tawny Owls Class is our Reception and Year 1 class. Their classroom is a purpose built classroom which is detached from the main school and has a wonderful outside area enabling the children to access Continuous Provision in a stimulating learning environment.
Mrs Skitmore and Mrs Kemp are the Tawny Owls Class Teachers, supported by Mrs Hanson, Mrs Thorpe and Miss Blanchard-Smith. The children have challenges to complete each day which are linked to their topic, English or Mathematics work. At the moment the children are taught phonics through Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds.
In the afternoon our Year 2 children join with the Reception and Year 1 children and their learning continues with the challenges. Within the class there is a Floor Book containing photos of work and tasks which highlights work completed beyond English, maths and topic. The children are more than happy to share their learning with visitors!
In the mornings our Year 2 children are split off from the rest of the Tawny Owls Class and are taught by Mrs Owen. During the morning sessions the children focus on English and Mathematics. The English is linked to the main topic from the Tawny Owls curriculum.
