Orange Week in Owl Class

Well done to all of you who remembered it’s ‘Orange Week!”
We brought in something orange to school from home and then gathered together our ‘orange’ collection. It was fun exploring all of the resources. We also learnt the Makaton sign for orange.
Of course, we had to eat oranges too.

Here is a lovely video of a little girl learning to sign ‘orange’. Have a go at home with Mummy or Daddy.

Listen to Mr Tumble, he is going to teach you how to sign your colours in Makaton. Try to do the colours as you sing along.

We hope you have had a good time learning your colours. We would love to see some of your interesting colour collections too.

Send us your pictures and we will post them.

We also have a lovely photo of Daniel who has been learning at home about chickens and their life cycle.

Take Care All

Have a lovely weekend

Book Week Toy Story

We have had a wonderful time celebrating Book Week. We made some glitter jelly and we also ate baked potatoes which looked like Mr Potato Head. Woody came to visit us and we waved to him out of the window.

Take a look at us making a display for our school Reception too.

Then we all had a fantastic dressing up day and Friday afternoon disco with all of our favourite dance tunes. It was FAB!!!

Hope you all had a lovely Toy Story World book Day at home too!

Take Care All, with love from all of your friends in Owl Class.


This week we had a go at making pancakes. We showed lots of interest in the smells and textures of the ingredients and did a little bit of mixing too.

They tasted amazing. We all loved them!!

Here is a story that we had in class about Mr Wolf who made some pancakes. He needed some help from his friends to make them. Listen to the story to find out what happens.

We hope you enjoyed the story as much as we did.

Did you make any pancakes at home last week? Let us know how your cooking session went.

Next week we will be celebrating World Book Week. Our theme is Toy Story and I will be posting lots of fun things to do soon.

Stay safe and well everyone!

From all your friends in Owl class.

Celebration Week

This week we have had a lot of things to celebrate. We all made a gorgeous Valentines Day card for our lovely Mummies and Daddies. We hope you like them.

Children at home, did you make one? You will find the instructions in your Spring Home Learning Pack, it’s not too late!

It is Elliot’s birthday today so on behalf of all the staff and children in Owl Class we would like to wish him a very Happy Birthday !!

Wow, what a fantastic Birthday song. We loved it, hope you do too Elliot!

Now, take a look at us exploring some Chinese Noodles this week as part of our Chinese New Year celebrations. It was a great Finger Gym session as we picked them up, squeezed them and threw them! They were very smooth and soft to touch and tasted nice too!

This weeks story was about Mrs Rainbow who loved colours and lived in a yellow house. During the story, we enjoyed looking and learning about different colours.

Next Half Term we are going to have a Colour of the Week. This will involve activities such as object sorting, painting, fruit and vegetable colours, songs about colour and jelly colours. Our first week’s colour will be ‘yellow’ so begin to gather some yellow toys and items from around your home, ready to start the first week back at school.

The first day back, please bring a yellow item or toy into school for circle time conversations.

Story Time

A zoo is the home of many animals, and this story fits in nicely with our topic ‘Homes and Buildings’. Listen and sign along to the story ‘Dear Zoo’.

Children’s Mental Health Awareness

Today we supported Children’s Mental Health week by looking and learning about the colour yellow and making some beautiful yellow daffodils for our lucky Mommies, Daddies and carers.

We also learnt a lot about animals when we tuned in the the Chester Virtual Zoo day. We saw penguins and lions feeding and alligators swimming in their enclosure. It was fantastic!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Chinese New Year Preparations

This week we started to make Chinese New Year decorations.

In your home learning resource pack, there are instructions on how to make a paper plate dragon mask. We began to make it this week. Here are some photos of our work so far, it is a work in progress!! Aayan used a painting roller, Emily cut around the edges of the plates with the special scissors and Tom made finger and palm prints and tried the roller too. Well done everyone!

When you make your dragon masks at home, try making marks in paint with your fingers, sponges or paintbrushes with chunky handles. Then send a photo to postbox@oakwood.walsall.sch.uk. It will be lovely to see your creations.

Here is our favourite Chinese New Year story. It is very pretty to watch and has all of the animals in it too.

Virtual Zoo

Chester Zoo are inviting you to a Virtual Zoo Day on Friday 5th February. Tune in via Facebook or You Tube. You will find the details below. It looks a great learning experience and we will certainly be tuning in.

Enjoy your weekend everyone.
