Where Everyone is Special

South Petherton Church of England Infants and Pre-School


Welcome to Owl Class.


We are grown-up Reception children in Owl Class. Our teacher is Mrs Farr. We also have Mrs Taylor, Mr Best and Mrs England helping us. Our classroom is in the original part of the building and we have our own outdoor area and private doorway into the school. We are very lucky to have our own outside area which we access all day everyday. There are 25 children in our class.


We are very proud of our achievements and enjoy learning to be independent and creative. We like to share our success on our personal display space. Sometimes we work with grown-ups in small groups and other times we learn by exploring our own interests and ideas. The grown-ups make observations and plan activities to help us get better at our learning.


We are very lucky to have caring parents who support us at home with our learning, and help us to get organised when it is time for our class worship. 


Owl classroom is always busy and we love trying new things. We are very lucky to be able to spend some time this year working in the outdoor classroom up at Frogmary farm. We are looking forward to more exciting learning and adventures over the coming year.

This week we have been learning...



In Mathematics

We have been busy looking at making two sides of a ladybird the same, using the language or less, more, add and subtract.


In Literacy

We have been designing parachutes for the Giant to send his messages and gifts to Jack, as the Mean Stalk will not let them climb up or down to meet. We used real design graph paper and worked hard to sound out big words such as parachute.


Frogmary Green Farm

This we at the farm we have been making signs for plants we are growing and hunting for minibeasts.




In mathematics

We have been looking at Subtraction. We used the Part Part Whole method to support us in understanding how to solve these new number sentences. Ask us to show you our new skills.


In Literacy

We have been looking at the story Jack and the Incredibly Mean Stalk. We then decided to create a character that we thought might live at the top of a mean stalk. We used our impressive phonic knowledge to write a sentence describing our characters. 


Frogmary Green Farm

This week at the farm we have been planting flowers, climbing bean stalks and acting out the Hungry Caterpillar.
