Welcome to The Hurricane Class!
We have had a great start to 2020, the children have settled well into the new class routine with Mrs Conner now on maternity leave. Mrs Hunter teaches all day on a Monday and Tuesday afternoons with myself teaching the rest of the week. We have a wonderful team working in the class each morning, Mrs Sutherland (Monday’s and Tuesdays), Mrs Mulcahy (Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays) and Mrs Webb who is with us every morning.
The Buccaneer Year 1 children stay with us for Phonics, English and Maths each morning and for PE, Music, RE, PSHE and Computing in the afternoons. They join the Buccaneer class on Wednesday and Friday afternoons for Science and History.
If you have any questions or concerns please do come and see me, if I’m not available please contact the school office to arrange a time. Thank you for your support so far whilst both classes have been adjusting to the change.
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.
