Owlet Class

Welcome to Owlet Class

Owlet Class is where our youngest pupils start their time at Checkendon School. Pupils join us when they are ‘rising five’, and enter Owlet Reception Class where Mrs Wortley teaches, with help of Mrs Thomas.  All Reception aged children, (rising fives), are able to start school full time at the beginning of the Autumn Term.

The children's interests determine the direction of our  learning but the general themes we work within are:

Term 1-All about Me

Term 2-Space

Term 3-Once Upon A Time

Term 4-Animal Magic

Term 5-Wild and Wonderful

Term 6-Explorers


Term 1 Week 5



This week in Owlets we have been reading the story of Titch.  We have talked about our brothers and sisters and thought about things we can do now that we weren’t able to when we little.  We have also been learning about plants and what they need to grow.  To help us learn about plants we have been very busy planting some beautiful recycled planters, with spring bulbs and violas, to brighten up our outside area.


Next week we will be thinking about our amazing grandparents.



Mrs Wortley
