Welcome to The Hurricane Class!
We have some wonderful Year 1 and 2 students this year, with the support of fabulous, hard-working TAs throughout various days of the week! In the mornings Years 1 and 2 are taught separately, with Mrs Johnson and Year 1 in the hall and Mrs Conner and Year 2 in the classroom. We are usually together in the afternoons.
I am sure there may be questions that will arise throughout the school year and I strongly believe in parent communication. You may 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.
Year 1 Dance Festival
The Year 1 children had a wonderful time at Burford School, learning a dance about fireworks. Thank you to the Burford School sports leaders for giving the children so much fun.
DT DAY - Making Apple Crumble
What an incredible DT day Hurricanes and Lancasters had together. We started off the morning by researching apple crumble recipes and discussing the differences in each recipe we found. Some subtle differences were in the ingredients and the method of how the apple crumble was made. We then began our adventure apple picking. What a blast we had, picking the best looking apples from the trees (with help from the teachers and assistants). We then prepared the apple crumble by washing the apples, peeling, coring and cutting the apples, then finally getting them ready to simmer. In the afternoon, we wrote a recipe for apple crumble and made the crumble, before putting our apple crumbles together to bring home and finally bake. Wow, what a day!
Lots of Creations
We had a busy last Forest School session before the half term break with lots of the children getting involved in making 'fat balls' for the birds during the colder weather, creating 'scary satsumas' to take home and eat, building miniature scarecrows for their gardens at home and, of course, stuffing and building a Forest School Guy for the village bonfire! It was lovely to see the children working together and happy in their learning...and an added bonus that we had such beautiful weather!!
