R1 - Waddell Class

Welcome to Class R1


Teacher: Mrs Janet Howard

Nursery Practitioner: Mrs Joaquina Alvares


This year class R1 is named after the author Martin Waddell. Over the term we will be learning about our chosen author. We will be doing lots of exciting things so please remember to check your class page!


Martin Waddell (born 10 April 1941) is an Irish writer of children's books. He may be known best for the texts of picture books that feature anthropomorphic animals, especially the 'Little Bear' series illustrated by Barbara Firth.



Class R1 will be doing a class display on 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell.




Owl Babies is a 1992 book by Martin Waddell and illustrated by Patrick Benson. It is about three owlets that wake up one night to find their mother gone, worry about her absence, but are then elated when she inevitably returns from her night flight. 



Owl Babies

Waddell class have been reading the story of the 'Owl Babies'. We have done many activities relating to the book that have enhanced the children's ability to learn, especially in our literacy and creative area. The children have worked very hard to create their own picture of the owl babies.
