Welcome to Kennedy Class!
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, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday). On Monday and Tuesday afternoon, we have Mrs. Williams supporting our class and on Thursday and Friday afternoon 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.

Kennedy in the woods
What a beautiful, sunny afternoon we had for our first Forest School with Class Kennedy! It was lovely to see how excited they were to get outdoors and hear about what they were keen to do today!!
After a chat around the fire about how we can keep ourselves and each other safe at Forest School, the children went off to hide their story rocks (made in class last week) and then went off to explore. Every child was absorbed in an activity within seconds - whether it was climbing a tree, making a den, swinging around, starting a fire, blowing bubbles, identifying plants or making a tree cookie. We even had a mud cake made for a birthday boy!!! It was great to see the children working together, trying new things, persevering and succeeding. After hearing, "I can't do this; I can't light a fire. I couldn't last year either!'...we finally heard, 'I did it!!!'
We had a lovely snack together; campfire pancakes and apples picked from our very own tree. We are already looking forward to next week!!
