Welcome to the Otter Class Page

 

Hello and welcome to Otter class page! The children in Otters have worked brilliantly throughout the Autumn and Spring Terms. We have learnt so many facts about Ancient Britain, from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.

 

Now we are experts on Ancient Greece too! We loved finding out about Greek mythology, the Persian Wars and the legacies of the Olympics, democracy and writing.

 

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 continue to take place on a Wednesday, and they will be taught by Mr Blacker and Miss Kane. 

 

Mr Greenslade will continue to teach the children on Thursday afternoons.

Bus Stop Division

At the moment, the Otters are working really hard to use the bus stop method for division. Here is a video to watch to help you to understand the method.

Important Notices

 

  • Don't forget that PE is every Wednesday. Children must wear their PE kit to school, including their 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.

 

 

Our Spring Topic is Ancient Greece. More information can be found on our Topic Overview at the bottom of the page. We are very excited to find out about Ancient Greece in our next topic. It is the first time that we have learnt about a period of History outside of the United Kingdom!


I wonder what Ancient Greece was like?
I wonder what they left behind?

I wonder how they dressed?

I wonder what they believed?

I wonder if they were involved in any wars?

Theseus and the Minotaur. Here is the original story that we have adapted to make it a brand new story.

MILEYUS AND THE UNIBULLTOR

We Love Reading!

 

We love reading in the Otter class. That's why we have spent so much time making our lovely reading area. It is a quiet place where we can enjoy our favourite books. 


In class, we have been reading 'Ned and the Chocolate Cheats' by local author Mark Jarvis. Throughout the Spring term, we will be creating book reviews of stories that we read. We will post some of our favourite reviews on here.

 

Help Us Make Our Reading Reservation Even Better!

 

We're always on the lookout for new books to read. If you have any books at home on the shelf that you've enjoyed, bring them into school so someone else can enjoy them. We would love to have as many great texts as possible in our reading reservation.
