Welcome to Owlets

Mrs Dixon is the teacher for Owlets class.  Our class is a mixture of reception and year one children.  All of the children have a natural desire to explore and learn and we aim to support their learning by creating an enabling environment which is engaging, active and appropriate.  Our reception children's stages of learning and development is tracked using the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, whilst our year one children's learning and development will be in accordance with the National Curriculum.

Dough Disco

In Owlets class we love Dough Disco. Dough Disco is a great activity for helping us to develop our fine motor skills. It strengthens the muscles in our hands and develops our hand-eye co-ordination which will later enable us to hold a pencil correctly and use it effectively. These are essential skills that we need to later be able to write.

Letters and Sounds

We have a phonics lesson everyday. We learn how to sound out single letters (phonemes) and digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (3 letters that make a sound)  We identify words that have particular sounds in and practise reading and writing them. Once we have learned the words, we practise using them in sentences.
