Speckled Owls

Teacher: Mrs Epstein

Welcome back and we hope you had a lovely Easter holiday! This half term our topic is Once Upon a Time. We will be focusing on traditional tales. The children will be learning about the features of fairy tales such as good vs bad, talking animals, magic, love, and royalty. We will also be looking at characters and setting. Our two main stories are The Gingerbread Man and The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

Our PE days have changed to Tuesday and Friday. Please bring in a named PE kit with trainers or plimsolls for outdoors PE when the weather is good.

We will be having a specialist music teacher on Thursdays.

The classrooms are open from 8:30 on a Friday if you would like to come in and read with your child before school starts.
