Welcome back and a happy new year to you all !!
The children in Owl Class have had a fabulous week this week. They have looked at the text Send for a Superhero by Micheal Rosen. This has inspired alot of work. The children have described the baddies, Filth and Vacuum. They have thought about the characteristics of a superhero as well as the accessories a superhero might need. They have been busy creating aliens out of playdough and making their own superhero costumes.
I wonder what next week will bring!
Today we have enjoyed making our party hats for the Christmas Party this afternoon. We have joined in with the Gift Making and we all wore our Christmas jumpers for Children in Need.

Next Week we are looking forward to Christmas Dinner, Sleeps til Santa and Carols around the tree - look out for the pics on the latest news page
Every Thursday morning Owls class opens its doors and welcomes parents to share stories with the children.
Please do come and share a story or two with your child on a Thursday morning.
The story we have been looking at this week in class is How to be a Dog. The children have enjoyed finding out the essential ingredients needed to be a dog - written from a dog's point of view.
Following on from this we now have a Vets in the outside area and the children have certainly enjoyed looking after the different animals that needed their attention.
The children in Owls have been finding out about Diwali. They have learnt how it is celebrated and had a go at making coconut sweets.
They used what they had been learning about in maths by using shapes to design Rangoli patterns. They were very proud of their chalk patterns they had created on the playground - that is until the rain came down!!
The children finished their unit of work based on Pig the Pug by changing the characters and writing their own stories.
Have an enjoyable half term
This week we have begun a new text called Pig the Pug. It is about a Pug called Pig who doesn't share his toys with his friend Trevor the sausage dog.
The children have been busy writing about the story.
Some children have written their own rhyming refrains following the structure of the text.
Others have been creating their own story books about Pig and Trevor.
In Maths we have continued to explore number 10.
The children have been exploring how to use the 10 frames.
They have played games with them outside and used them to work out number problems.
Some children have used their knowledge of ways to make 10 to work out the pairs of numbers that make 20.
