History of toys


This term we are learning all about toys. We will find out when teddy bears were invented, how to play games like marbles and jacks and use our known adults to find out about toys in the past. 


For the second half term we will be looking at the toys owned by Christopher Robin and studying Winnie the Pooh. We will be looking through the Winnie the pooh cook book and developing our understanding of hygiene and how to live a healthy lifestyle. 


Dinosaur Adventure!

Not long now till the start of term. We have a really exciting first half term. We will be learning about dinosaurs! So get ready for fossil hunting and stories all about different dinosaurs. 

We are the champions!


Many of Owl class are back at school. We have started the half term, so well, that we are back to having the full curriculum throughout the week. We will still be doing extra sessions outside, including our daily run to make sure we have time for developing our well-being and making sure we get time to be socially distanced with our friends.

Summer term planning

Hello, I am so sorry we will not be starting the summer term back at school just yet. 

I am going to continue with our normal routines and learning to ensure we have coverage of the curriculum for the children. 

Have a look at the medium term planning which I will try to stick to as much as possible.  I have posted a new resource pack to all of Owl class and I will tell you what you need to use, when,  on the home learning star.

In the event of a school closure, this is one way in which staff will contact pupils and also how pupils can contact their teachers if they have any home learning questions.

Remember your SMART e-safety.

We had a great start to 2020. 

We completed lots of art work to do with winter and enjoyed listening and dancing to all four of Vivaldi's four seasons. We thoroughly enjoyed being outdoors even in the cold and mud! 

We have prepared Chinese food, had a go at chopping wood and learnt how to read maps. 


Our Jack and the beanstalk writing at the end of half term showed how much our writing had improved. 


We continue learning about our Wonderful world this half term. Look out for when we are welcoming visitors in Science week and in the week before Mothers day. 

Spring term - first half highlights

Our new topic for 2020 is What a wonderful world!


Have a look at the medium term planning for the topic. 


What a wonderful half term we have had already. 

I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching such a great group of children. 

My favourite bits of last term include...

  • Acting out a story in English.


  • Everyone working together to make our class fire engine



  • How much the children are learning in phonics sessions each day and how much we enjoy being as a class group, asking and answering questions. 



Our new topic is called Everything is Awesome!

Take a look at our new topic maps and weekly view below. 


Some of our Fruit and vegetable faces.

Hello and welcome to the Owl's class page. 

Our year 1 pupils have been back for 1 week and our new reception pupils have now joined us in the morning for 2 successful days. It is so exciting to be starting a new adventure of my own at Brington School and I am really enjoying it so far. 


Over the holiday I have been busy making the classroom a learning zone for all pupils. I'm hoping many parents will come and see how we are now learning on the curriculum evening in the next few weeks.

Our topic for this first half term is            This is me! 


We will be learning about our bodies and being healthy as well as thinking about important people that help us. We are hoping to visit a role play center later on in the term so we can practise our skills as fire people, nurses, doctors and police officers. I wil let you know more information as soon as I can. 


We will be doing PE on a Tuesday afternoon and on Friday morning. It would really help if all the children can keep practising getting dressed on their own, especially those tricky shirt buttons. 


Please take a look at the planning for this half term.
