Owl Class Exciting Events
Week Ending: 15.09.23
Owl class have had an incredible first full week with us at Coton
The children have strived to demonstrate the high expectations we have set, learning the new routines and beginning to embed them into their daily life.
This week the children have focused on the theme of 'Ourselves'.
During circle time, they have demonstrated their turn-taking and listening skills, sharing their favourite colour, food and toys, as well as discussing their families.
Owl class have got creative and painted their own self portraits, using mirrors to identify their facial features, and selecting appropriate colours for their hair and eyes.
Using their observational skills, the children have demonstrated and extended their knowledge around matching images and objects, as well as organising items into sets. They have become very adept at laying the table ensuring every place setting has cutlery, cups, plates and bowls!
To top off a very busy week...
Owl class also embarked on their Little Wandle Phonics journey, exploring the following phonemes (sound) and graphemes (written representation of the sound) - s a t p.
The game 'Shuffle Time' has already become a firm favourite alongside the letter formation phrases!

Wow! What a fantastic start!
It was wonderful to see all of the children arrive with beaming smiles on their faces, as I welcomed them into Owl Class for the first time this academic year
It is safe to say an enjoyable morning was had by all! The children happily explored all areas of the learning environment, demonstrating their knowledge and creativity at every turn. They proudly walked to the hall for their first collective worship of the year, and confidently sat with the rest of the school, participating with the discussions. The morning flew by and, following an incredibly tight first class vote, Owl Babies by Martin Waddell was chosen to be the first book we shared together.
I look forward to the rest of our first week together and the many adventures to come over the coming months.
