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.

Today the children from Foundation and Year 1 all set off to explore our local area some more. As part of the Neighbourhood Development Plan we have been talking about local facilities and amenities, but there are no shops in Brize Norton, so where should we go?
Thirty-three children and six adults caught the bus to Carterton, much to the driver and other passengers surprise. Once in Carterton Year 1's went into Robert Taylor's Estate Agents where the very kind people helped us find where we were on their map and trace our bus journey. They then spoke with us about the different types of houses we have in our area and gave every child a magazine to take home.
In the mean time Foundation children went in to Asda to do our shopping for cooking on Friday, will we be making wraps or maps? They will have to wait and see. (No, it won't be chocolate muffins with peppers and cheese Darcie!)
When Year 1 had finished in the estate agents we went for a look around at the different shops to see what we might find. There were lots of places if we wanted to eat, everything from pizzas to chinese, or cake and coffee. If we wanted to get our hair cut or nails polished we could do those things too. We could even get our bike fixed if we needed to. But where would I go for a new party dress and pair of shoes?
After they had paid for their shopping it was the Foundation children's turn to have a look in the estate agents and learn about different houses. We all then met back at the bus stop to catch the bus back to school in time for lunch.
Many thanks to the three parents who joined us on our trip, and also to the helpful staff in Robert Taylor's and Asda.
