Welcome to Wise Owls

Most children in Wise Owls attend Stakesby's nursery, however we also welcome pupils from other settings, including independent nurseries. Wise Owls share the Early Years building with Super Squirrels but have their own learning space suited to their increasing independence and curriculum. Mrs Tacon - Early Years Lead - teaches alongside Mrs Parker. Across the academic year, pupils in Wise Owls continue to explore the world around them, learning about different faiths, cultures and countries - and how these relate to their own experiences.

Pupils bring reading and homework books home to share with parents and carers and also begin formal PE lessons in the main school hall. Learning experiences continue to include exploratory play, maths, phonics, writing, topic, art, design & technology and Forest School. These experiences lay the foundations your child needs to successfully engage in the Year 1 curriculum. 

Forest School takes place every Wednesday with our specialist teacher, Mrs Mason. We're very lucky to have our own school wood; the changing natural environment provides a wonderful space for your child to learn, explore and challenge themselves in a safe and familiar setting. 

Parents and carers can join in the fun via Class Dojo - a free app for your phone and tablet - which is where we post photos of our learning, play and adventures each day.

Visits to our Early Years setting are welcomed. Please contact the school office via telephone on 01947 820231 or email admin@stakesbyschool.net
