Use of planners

Planners should be checked daily for notes from school and any notes for teachers, including collection arrangements, should be noted in the planner. Reading (including book title and chapter or page numbers) should be recorded at least 3 times a week in planners and initialled by parents. Planners need to be signed by parents at the end of each week ready for the teacher’s signature on Monday morning. Pupils must take responsibility for ensuring this happens every week.

2. What is going on in Owl class?


Your class teacher will update this page at least once per term with photos and information on recent events or activities. 


For our WOW day this term, we visited St Albans and were lucky enough to have a walking tour of the city. We each played a character as we were told all about the history of St Albans. Here are some of the pictures of the historic buildings we learnt about. 
In Maths recently, we have been exploring place value and using the greater than and less than signs. We remember them as crocodiles - they always want to eat the biggest number!
