Welcome to The Hurricane Class!
We have 27 wonderful students this year, with the support of fabulous, hard-working TAs throughout the week! Mrs. Edmunds supports Hurricane Class every morning and Mrs Johnson, our trainee teacher, is teaching many lessons. Mrs Godfrey supports Hurricane Class Thursday all day and Friday afternoon. We are so lucky to have SO much wonderful support!
I am sure there may be questions that will arise throughout the school year and I strongly believe in parent communication. There is a parent communication book in front of my classroom that you may leave any comments or concerns in. You may also 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.
Eight of our ten eggs hatched and we have five boys and three girls. Class 1 and Class 2 had great fun naming the chicks, everyone wrote a name on a piece of paper, we put them all in a bowl and mixed them up to choose. Our boys are Max, Flash, Biscotti, Fred and Felix. Our girls are Rapunzel, Chickedy-Grace and Lilly. Ask your children how we can tell them apart!
The chicks have spent time Class 1 and Class 2 and all children have had a chance to hold them. We have been caring for them daily and observing their changes, they grow so quickly! Next week they will be moving out to the Foundation garden before going to their new homes before half term, so if you haven't come and had a peek, please come and look.
The chicks have arrived
Class 1 and 2 were very excited on Tuesday to receive delivery of an incubator and ten eggs ready to hatch. Phil from Living Eggs showed us how to look after the eggs and how to set up the brooder box to care for the chicks after they have hatched. We will need to feed them and give them fresh water twice a day.
Then, this morning, when children arrived at school four of the eggs had already hatched! When they had dried and fluffed up we could see two are yellow and two are brown, that means we have two girls and two boys so far. Another chick hatched this evening, just before Mrs Winter went home, I wonder how many there will be by the morning?
Children are very much looking forward to holding the chicks on Friday and having a cuddle. We will also be naming the chicks so start thinking of ideas...
