Clipston Endowed VC Primary School

Owl Class Owl Class

Welcome to Owl Class! We are a class of Reception and Year 1 children.  Our teacher is Miss Glascodine and we are supported by Ms Preedy.

We attach great importance to child initiated learning and developing children’s creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills.  We believe that working with families is a key factor in achieving these aims.

For children in reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum. The EYFS has the child at its centre, our planning starts with observing the children in order to understand and consider their current interests, development and learning.  Our main aim at Clipston School is to ensure that all children’s’ individual needs are met, that they are happy and safe and that they thoroughly enjoy coming to school.

PE is on Monday afternoons for both reception and Year 1. All children need to have PE shorts, t-shirt and trainers in school. Jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt are required for colder days when PE is outside.

Home/School Reading Books
Reading books are changed in school whenever the children have finished reading them to an adult.

Homework & Spellings
Year 1 children are given homework to complete every Friday. This usually involves a task using knowledge and skills that the children have learnt in school that week. An outline of the children’s learning each week is included in the homework instructions.
Finally, all children are given new spellings/high frequency words to learn at home every fortnight.
