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.
Dinotastic Author Visit
We were so lucky to have local author, Jay Jay Burridge, visit us today to talk about his amazing Supersaurs books. The children were privileged to spend over an hour with him as he explained how his series of books came about in which humans live alongside dinosaurs. It was fascinating to discover how he used real life events and pictures to help conjure up images of humans riding dinosaurs or working alongside them. Gradually his pictures evolved and along came this amazing idea on which his Supersaurs books are based. It was a story of creativity, overcoming difficulties and perseverance; a truly inspiring talk...you can do anything if you put your mind to it!
Book week got off to a great start with some lovely paired reading during snack and story time. It was the perfect opportunity for older children to get together with younger ones, relax and share a book. All of the children seemed to love it, and are looking forward to moving around the other classes during the week.
