Welcome to Barn Owls!
We work hard, try our best, listen to each other and most of all enjoy learning new things.
We have had a fantastic start to the Autumn term. The children have started this term with an amazing attitude as always.
This term, our doorway to learning takes us through a cave where we will be reading 'Stig of the Dump' by Clive King
Just a few little reminders:
P.E. is now on a Thursday afternoon - all pupils with shoulder length hair need this tied back and earrings need to be removed or covered with a plaster.
Homework: Set on a Friday and due in the following Thursday.
Spellings: Set on Tuesdays, with a test the following Tuesday.
Reading records - please make sure they are in school and write any comments if you have listened to your child read.
If you have any problems, please do not hesitate to make an appointment with Mrs Heggie to see me.
Thank you for your support, Mr Clee.
