Welcome to The Hurricane Class!
We have 27 wonderful students this year, with the support of fabulous, hard-working TAs throughout the week! Mrs. Edmunds supports Hurricane Class every morning. Miss Hill is with us Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday full day and Friday mornings (not Thursdays). Mrs Godfrey supports Hurricane Class Thursday all day and Friday afternoon. Mrs Williams supports The Hurricane Class Thursday afternoons. Mrs Johnson will eventually be supporting us Tuesday afternoons. We are so lucky to have SO much 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 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.

What an absolute brilliant day at RAF Brize Norton!
From viewing and learning about a C-17, to having a tour of the Terminal, to having fun in the hangar where the men practice parachuting and finishing it off, with a look around a Hercules.. it was just more than we could have asked for! We can't thank Mrs Marshman enough!
Dinotastic Forest School
The Hurricanes said at their last session that they would like to do a dinosaur hunt and have it as a theme for the week. So, we started the session by getting into groups and searching the site high and low for different dinosaurs. Some of the children then chose to print fossils into clay and we talked about the different fossils that we had. Other children were keen to make charcoal on the fire; they used the loppers to cut willow, which we put into a tin on the fire. Once it stopped smoking, we knew that it was time to look. They then went off to write and draw.
It has been great to see the children grow in confidence and develop during their time at Forest School. They love playing imaginatively and learning new skills - and have shown a lot of perseverance with more difficult tasks.
