Happy last week of term Owl Class!

Wow we have officially made it to the last week of what feels like the longest term! You have all done AMAZING throughout this term and it makes me so proud to be your teacher! You have not failed to amaze me how you have taken everything in your stride and shone like the bright super stars I know you are!

Thank you so much for all of the work and pictures you are all sending me! I am loving seeing what you have been up to and thank you for joining in with our live phonics sessions and story times. It is always so lovely to see you all and it is definitely the best part of my week.

Internet safety day – Tuesday 9th February 2021

On Tuesday it is internet safety day and this day is all about creating awareness of the internet, its uses, how to use it safely and understanding the dangerous and risk of using it. This year the theme is: An internet we trust: exploring the reliability in the online world. This term in our P.S.H.E lessons we have done a lot of work around internet safety so we should already know lots about this. However, today I would like you to watch this video and complete the activity below.


Activity: Write an email to Wise_Owl saying what the story has taught you.  This could be from yourself or from Digiduck. You could write this by hand using  the templates below, or you could use a device to type them too. Alternative: Instead of writing, you could also draw the important things that you have learnt from the story.

Emails can be sent to familyfarmyard@childnet.com

Note to parentss: Emails will receive a reply from ‘Wise_Owl,’ who will be the creator and author of Digiduck, Lindsay Buck. Please ensure that emails are only sent from parents on behalf of your child and not your child themselves, thank you.

Friday 12th February 2021

On Friday instead of the usual star of the week assembly we are going to be having a special quiz and celebration assembly to celebrate all of the fantastic things you have been doing this term. The teams quiz will start at 11:30 and will finish just before 12. I hope to see lots of you there! There will be prizes for the winners of the quiz and also certificates and prizes to be given out for all of the hard work you have been doing at home. 

I will send a link for the quiz to parent's email addresses and will upload the quiz at 12 for anyone unbale to join the quiz on teams. 

Please bring a piece of paper and a pen as well as your answer to: What has been your favourite part of this term?

This week in phonics we are going to be recapping all of our split diagraph sounds ‘a_e’, ‘e_e’, ‘i_e’, ‘o_e’ and ‘u_e’. See the documents below for this week’s lessons and activities.


This week in P.S.H.E we are going to be continuing with our mindfulness that we practised last week. Have a go at another activity from below that makes you happy.

  • Colouring
  • A walk or bike ride
  • Baking
  • Painting
  • Practise breathing exercises
  • Yoga
  • Go outside and listen to your surroundings
  • Listening to or creating music
  • Read a book


This week we are also going to be practising our breathing exercises. Breathing exercises can help you relax, because they make your body feel like it does when you are already relaxed. Deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress or anger in your body. This is because when you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax. In the document below there are some suggested breathing exercises that I would like you to try. Once you get the hang of them you can use these when you feel stressed, anxious or upset. I would love to see lots of pictures of you practising mindfulness and breathing exercises.



So far, in our topic lessons, we have learnt the names of the seven continents. We have located these on a world map. We have learnt about the different climates of the world, physical and human geography. We have used stories, pictures, maps, and our inference skills to help us find out about places. Last week we looked in more depth about Kenya and Africa. This week we are going to be looking at the United Kingdom and the surrounding seas. Watch the video in the Resource Centre.
