Welcome to The Hurricanes Class.
We are a mixed Year 1 and Year 2 class with space for 20 Year 1 and 10 Year 2 children. Our teacher is Mrs. Winter with Mrs. Sutherland supporting. We aim to provide a supportive, nurturing environment where children can continue to progress on their learning journey and meet their potential. Children should feel secure to make mistakes as well as celebrate achievements.
We believe education to be a partnership between school and home, working together to meet the needs of every child. Communication is key to this partnership so please come and talk to us if you have any worries or concerns, or want to share your child's successes. If you wish to have a longer conversation, please make an appointment so we have time to listen.
We look forward to supporting your children as they continue to develop and grow.

Learning new skills in PE
The children are doing really well at learning new skills in PE - from holding the hockey stick correctly to push passing, dribbling and shooting…as well as having fun!!
Hurricanes Home Learning Activities
In Geography we are going to be learning about our local area, initially focusing on Brize Norton village. It would be helpful if children are able to think about what we have in the village and where buildings (such as the church, school and Humble Bumble) are located. You might like to go for a walk around the village (maybe when you visit the Village Bash on Sunday) to support this.
Whilst you are out and about you might also like to pick some blackberries. Later, towards the end of term, we will be cooking with local produce in Design and Technology. If you are able to collect a plastic tub or glass jar of blackberries to bring to school I will freeze them for later use. Please pick berries away from roads and higher than a medium sized dog!
Pictures from our first two weeks
From our Disney Dress-up Day, place value in maths, exploring maps in geography, using musical instruments to accompany our Three Little Pigs story to gymnastics in PE, here are a few things we have been doing in Hurricane Class.
Welcome new Hurricanes
A super start to the new school year! Children all came in and settled well to their morning activities. Everyone completed their writing and maths work as well as enjoying being back together with friends. Well done to you all.
Hurricanes 2020-21 final few days.
To finish off the term we had some fun in the sun playing with our shadows (until a cloud stopped play) then made sun catchers. We celebrated birthdays and said farewell to friends moving on. Children also completed all the puzzles in the classroom to check the pieces were all there. Finally, we all sat down together for mid morning coffee (baby chinos) and a well deserved chocolate cake!
You have been such an amazing class over the last two years, despite the turbulent times, we have navigated through together. For those of you moving on, keep working hard and shining. To those remaining, we look forward to welcoming you back in September alongside our new Year 1s.
Mrs Deegan and Mrs Sutherland join me in thanking you all for your generous and thoughtful gifts, but especially your kind words and parent's support, without whom we could not do half of what we do.
