Otters

Welcome to the Class Page

 

Hello and welcome to Otter class page! We are very excited about this year's learning journey! The Otters class teacher this year is Mr Bemister. Also working with the children will be Mr Bull (our apprentice TA) and Mrs Waugh. Children's PE lessons will take place on a Wednesday, and they will be taught by Mr Blacker and Miss Kane. 

Important Notices

 

  • Don't forget that PE is every Wednesday. Children must wear their PE kit to school, including their brand new hoodies and shirts!
  • Children have now got their reading books ready to read at home. We want to get lots of words read so that we can be AR champions! Once children have read their book, they can bring it in to school and do a quiz.
  • Children will be doing their Times Tables Travels on Fridays. They can squeeze some extra practice in before then.

 

‘The Mammoth Hunt’ Cave Paintings

 

The Otters spent some time thinking like our main character in our story today. The character is called Kroll (a boy living with his family and tribe in prehistoric Britain) and he becomes a man when he hunts a small Mammoth. The children thought carefully about what this would mean to Kroll and drew cave paintings to reflect this. They used charcoal to create their pictures.
