Hurricanes Heroes Chance to Shine. 

Today we enjoyed our first cricket session with coach Julian. Children practiced catching and batting skills whilst having fun in the sun.  

Hurricanes church visit

Today Gary from St Britius joined us for an RE lesson in the church. We explored objects in the church and learned their names.  Children enjoyed looking at the baptism register to see names they recognised. 

Gary then led a short service to show children what this involves. He taught us a song and two children were invited to do a short reading.  It was great to have the opportunity for some learning outside the classroom. 

Many thanks to Mr Drake for accompanying us too. 

Pond-dipping, dens and butterflies

We had a lovely afternoon of sunshine and the children took a much more relaxed approach to Forest School. Many of them went off to shadier areas to build dens, play with water in the mud kitchen or do some pond dipping.  Having talked about the life cycle of frogs, some children were lucky enough to spot a frog sun bathing!  There was some relaxed creativity and a sudden rush near the end of the session to make simple butterfly feeders using nectar that we’d made on the fire earlier in the session.

Hurricanes Summer 2 Timetable

To keep you up to date, there are a few changes to our timetable this term so please see attached document. Key points to note are that our PE will now be on THURSDAY (no longer Monday) and we will also be changing reading books and checking reading records on this day so children will need their reading folders in school. Forest school will continue on Tuesday afternoons. 

Can I also take this opportunity to remind you children are expected to read five times per week with an adult at home and these should be recorded in their reading record (five separate entries please). 

Spelling and homework books will still be brought in on Friday then sent home again on Monday. 

Many thanks for your continued support

Mrs. Winter, Mrs. Sutherland and Mrs. Deegan 

New Geography Topic: 7 continents, 5 oceans

Dear Hurricanes Parents and Carers

In geography this term we are going to be learning about the different continents around the world and are going to start by discussing what the children already know. Before the topic begins, please help them to remember any times that they have been abroad (this may be some time ago now) on holiday or to visit relatives, or any contact with friends or relatives living abroad. If you currently have any friends or relatives living abroad, perhaps you and your child(ren) could contact them and discuss how it is similar or different to the UK.

If possible, please help your child(ren) to find any relevant photographs of the countries with which they are familiar that they could bring into school to attach to a map of the world. They may also wish to bring in to show and share other resources, such as mementoes or souvenirs of your holiday or visits. Our first session will be on Monday 7th June, this is our first day back so please ensure they are prepared if they have anything they wish to bring in and share. 

Many thanks 

Mrs Winter
