Mr Brown

Welcome to Otters class!


In Otters class we chose this Psalm to show what it means to be in our class. It also links to one of our favourite books.

Psalm 73.23.png


Please the opportunity a look at the useful information about what Otters class will be doing this term.

PE Days: Tuesday and Friday, plese come in your kit on these days.



Here at Tarporley we follow the BOOKS approach to our curriculum. We want to be/have:

Bravery                                        Otters are brave

Outward-facing                           Otters are outward - facing

Opportunities                              Otters embrace opportunities

Knowledge and skills                 Otters seek knowledge and skills

Spirituality                                   Otters are spiritual


English: Please do not read the books ahead of time as we enjoy discovering them together!

The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark- Jill Tomlinson (both picture book and chapter version); Owl Babies- Martin Waddell; Above and Below- Hanako Clulow

Focus: understanding a sentence needs a capital letter at the start, a subject and a verb (usually) and the full stop goes at the end of the idea. 

         : learning to write a non-chronological report. So any non-fiction reading material you can find to look at the headings, information, diagrams and their labels would support work in school beautifully.



Number: Addition and subtraction to 100

            : Finding the difference (and using bar models to help)

            : odd and even numbers


Religious Education:

Judisism - We will be exploring the following 'Big Questions'

What do Jews believe about God?

How do Jews show faith through practices and celebrations?

In Worship, we are learning about Joseph and how God's light saved him in his darkest hour. We will be reflecting on how giving our trust to God will bring our own light to shine.


Science: Living things and their Habitats - Plants, Animals and their Habitats. What is a habitat? What different kinds of habitats are there? Why?


Design and Technology: Design and evaluate a bird box. 

We have asked for help from Mr Gilbody for this and are looking forward to sharing his expertise on birds and D/T with us.


History and Geography: Exploring the lives of significant individuals. What is an explorer? What did they contribute to history/now? We will learn about Neil Armstrong, Tim Peake, Mae C. Jemison,  Valentina Tereshkova.


PE: Invasion games
