Uplands Primary School


Welcome to Owls!


Teacher: Mr Moorcroft

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Knight


Welcome to the Owls class page where you will find out all about day to day life in our class.


A typical day in Owls starts with a phonics or spelling session where the children learn all the sounds they need to read and spell.  This is followed by a maths session where we focus on our arithmetic skills. We then have an English session before break.  Next, we have another maths session focusing on the wider mathematical curriculum. We follow this with a handwriting session before the children make their way down to the lunch hall.  In the afternoons, we get chance to learn about science, geography and history through our current topic.  On Tuesday, the children will have a weekly PE lesson (swimming in the summer term). 


Key information

  • Year Two homework books will be handed out on a Friday, to be handed in the following Friday.

  • We have PE every Tuesday afternoon and all children need to have a PE kit in school at all times.

  • We ask that children read at least four times a week at home as this makes a huge difference to their progress.  We will aim to read once a week with your child in school and they will have the opportunity to change their book each day.They will also take part in a weekly guided reading session.


To see more about what we have been up to each week, take a look at our blog page where you will find photos and weekly updates!  


Any questions please feel free to come in and ask.

In Owls class we work hard to use our Learning Powers at all times. We relish the opportunity to work together to develop these. Here are some examples of the ways that we do this in our class.


We love to ask questions and experiment.


We learn from our mistakes and we keep on trying.


We have high expectations of what we can achieve.


We love working together and sharing ideas.


We can get the resources we need to help us learn.
