Mr Peetoom

Welcome to Wise Owls

My name is Mr. Peetoom, senior teacher, and the teacher of Years 5 and 6.  In Wise Owls, we strive to achieve the balance of having high expectations for all children and managing to have a lot of fun along the way:

  • Fun activities outside the classroom to enhance the curriculum

  • Individual attention in a small-class setting

  • Positive learning environment for your child

  • Healthy lifestyles promoted through physical activity and sports

  • Age range - Years 5 and 6
  • Class Size - 24
  • Teacher - Mr. Peetoom
  • Teaching Assistants - Mrs. Showering, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Taylor (& volunteer T.A. - Mrs. Hughes)

Class News

Our current topic in the Spring Term is 'Earthlings'.  The children will be learning all about the Earth, Moon and the solar system.  Our English will be cross-curricular and we will be writing reports about Mars and writing poetry inspired by the planets.  We will learn about rivers and flooding and plate tectonics.  In RE, we will explore ideas about the nature of God, both conceptually and through Bible study.  This half-term, we will make some space-inspired music using GarageBand, but we will also start following the Charanga scheme and use some real instruments.  In PE, we will have a full half-term of athletics - this coincides with our small school sports athletics event (which we have won for the past two years) - we will look forward to seeing how we get on this time.  After-school netball and tag-rugby starts up again in February.

Homework

Every child is expected to read at home 4 times per week, with page numbers and a signature in their reading record every time they read.  As your child gets older, please encourage them to read for more sustained periods - a chapter/15 pages each night for example.  Reading records are checked every Monday morning.  Wise Owls Reading Challenge is up and running to encourage children to read a broad diet of some of the best children's fiction available.  

The children have a short maths or grammar homework on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  This should take about 10 minutes to complete.  Weekend homework this term will usually be mathletics activities.
