We are the Wise Owls and are a class of Year 6 children. We have 19 pupils in our class and each one of us is very keen to work hard and be the best we can be. Our teacher is Mrs Weston and our teaching assistant is Mrs Brace, and together they work very hard to help us reach our full potential.
Our PE lessons are on Wednesdays and alternate Thursdays.
We expect the Home Learning Log to be completed and handed in every Monday.
Alongside this we have spellings to learn for every Tuesday and times tables to learn for every Monday.
If we ever need any help with our homework then we can always ask Mrs Weston or Mrs Brace back at school.
We have lots to look forward to this year and reading the following pages will help you to discover more about what we are learning.
Find below some links to websites which you might find useful to use at home.
