Happy and secure as we all learn together


Welcome to the Owls Class!


Class Teacher: Mrs Z Cope

Teaching Assistant: Mr K Hill

Learning Support Assistant: Miss S O'Hanlon


A warm welcome to the Owls Class :) We are a  Year One class.  Mrs Cope is the class teacher and Mr Hill is the teaching assistant.

Every morning we have Read, Write, Inc sessions. Read, Write, Inc is a phonics programme, designed to introduce the skills of reading and writing from initial sounds right through to comprehension and extended writing activities. We also have Mathematics every morning and we follow the 'Inspire Maths' scheme each day, we also use Numicon as a resource for teaching and learning number skills in Year One.  

Our teachers make sure that the work we do is appropriate to our abilities as well as making sure it is challenging and helps us gain new skills and understanding on a daily basis.

We have topic based activities every afternoon and we have a range of topics to choose from. Each half term we decide as a class what we would like to learn about. 

The Owls Class is divided into the different Foundation Phase Areas. Each area has a challenge to enhance our learning and develop new skills. This is changed on a weekly or fortnightly basis changed according to the theme. We also enjoy extending our learning into our outdoor classroom.

We have PE sessions weekly and we will go to the local Leisure Centre for half hour swimming lessons at some point during the year. Alongside these activities, we also have many opportunities during the year for Forest Schools, Beach Schools and Diggerland with the Outdoor Learning Team.



In the Owls Class we work hard and we always try our best. We make sure that we all know the Ysgol Glan Gele’s Motto, ‘Happy and Secure as we all learn Together’.
