Welcome to the Owl Class website!



Welcome to the Owl Class web page! It is very strange not to see you again after one day back at school, but as you know, it was a surprise to everyone. I hope that you are all OK and not missing school too much... 


If you look on the Remote Learning page, you will find some learning tasks to do for the rest of this week. Last time we were in lockdown, I remember that I wrote to you about how different it is, learning at home instead of in school. It is so important that you try your best to complete the tasks independently and sometimes this will be tricky. You will really need to use your very powerful brains to read the information very carefully, think about what you need to do and use all the knowledge you already have about the subject. I know that you are all really capable and I look forward to seeing what you can do! 


I also look forward to seeing you on our Class Zoom call every Monday, please do bring any questions you have about the learning you have been doing at home. Just before I finish, I would also like to say thank you for all the cards, presents and Christmas wishes you sent at the end of last term. My thank you notes are in quarantine at school, and will be for some time I think!

Reading Week

We have been enjoying reading week and especially our new class book, 'The Messenger Bird' by Ruth Eastham. We even had a Zoom Q & A with the author - very exciting! The novel is based on Bletchley Park, top-secret wartime code-cracking HQ. Have a look at the fact file below...


We immersed ourselves into the world of Bletchley Park and wrote code-crackers' diaries. Some of them were extremely gripping!


Finally, have a look at the gallery below of our pen-and-ink illustrations of scenes from the book - beautiful!
