Welcome to Kennedy Class!

Welcome Back!  

We have 27 wonderful students this year, with the support of four lovely TA's throughout the week!  Mrs. Webb and Mrs. Edmonds support Kennedy Class in the mornings (Mrs. Webb is with us Monday-Thursday).  In the afternoon, we have Mrs. Williams supporting our class and on Fridays all day is Mrs. Godfrey.  We are so lucky to have such wonderful support!

I am sure there may be questions that will arise throughout the school year and I strongly believe in parent communication.  There is a parent communication book in front of my classroom (Class 2) that you may leave any comments or concerns in.  You may also speak to me first thing in the morning or after school, or email the office and they will forward your letter to me and I will respond as quickly as I can.  I will be happy to speak with you, as communication is key to your child's success.  

I have high expectations for all students, with an "above and beyond" attitude.  I know you will be surprised by the growth you will notice in your child throughout the school year.  To create an exceptional student, it takes the home and the school.  Please be a part of your child's education as much as you can.  Ask questions about their day and what they learned in class (if they say nothing, they are lying!) :) Be a part of their homework assignments. Being involved is the best you can do!  Thank you for all of your support and I am so proud of your children!!  I love their hugs, smiles and brilliant attitude towards their school work.

Festive Forest School

The last few weeks of Forest School were very busy, with many of the children choosing to create a variety of natural Christmas crafts.  We had tree cookie ornaments being sawn, snowmen being built, reindeer being created and santa sticks being whittled.  Some of the children hadn't used the tools before, so it was lovely to see them gain confidence as they learned a new skill.  

Other children that had been interested in using a flint and steel to start a small shell fire, learned to make natural firelighters using wax, sawdust and egg boxes; they then used these to create a larger fire in a fire bowl.  

The children have been trying lots of different food to warm them up on the colder afternoons - from crumpets to quesadillas (which were very popular!!) and good old hot chocolate!

We hope the children have enjoyed their term of Forest School; we will be welcoming back Nightingales on Mondays after Christmas and it will be the turn of Hawkings Class on Tuesdays.

It's getting busy behind the scenes...

School is a hive of activity at the moment with preparations for the Christmas performances.  But it isn't just the children having to learn lines and songs; adults behind the scenes are working really hard to tweak costumes, create 'growing' beanstalks and paint props!

Cogges Manor Farm

We really enjoyed going to Cogges Manor Farm last week.We were able to travel through time and experience Christmas in different time periods. We made christmas wreath in Pagan times. We made gingerbread pigs in a Tudor kitchen. We made do and mend in WW1 using newspaper to make paper chains and we made Christmas crackers in the victorian period. We even had a puppet show at the end of the day. We had so much fun and lovely getting into the christmas spirit.

Happy Birthday William B.!!
