Olive

Welcome to Olive Class!

 

We are one of Newtown Primary School's two Year 5/6 classes. Our teacher is Miss Bowen, and our TA is Ms Bailey.

 

Our topic during the summer term is Ahoy! Pirates!, with a focus on Tudor exploration for the first half of the term and then a Pirate research project in the second half! We will be researching famous Tudor figures, identifying what life was like in Tudor times and finding out why Sir Francis Drake wanted to explore the world.

 

Our indoor PE session is on a Thursday, and we head outdoors for PE on a Friday.

 

In the mornings:

The school gates open at 8:45, and the children are expected to bring themselves into the classroom sensibly. Lunch boxes need to be placed on the trolley in the kitchen, and water bottles in the tray next to the sink. When the children arrive in the classroom, there will be early morning tasks for them to complete to set them up for the day ahead.
