Welcome to Owls Class

Welcome to Owls. We are year 5 & 6 and we are taught by Mrs Siddiqui, Mrs Hammond, Miss Jones and Miss Dowsett. We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead, with new books to read, new facts to learn and skills to develop.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Remember to wear our PE kit to school on these days.

This term we are reading Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick, and we are learning about earthquakes and volcanoes, Light and how to write code to make a playable game. To find out more about the learning we have planned for this year, our Curriculum Map is below.
