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.

Topic: Toys from the Past

In our topic this term, we have been learning about Toys from the Past.  Last week, we discussed how we have changed.  Children brought in photographs of them as babies and we compared what they could do then and what they could do now.   Thank you to Mrs. Rowlands (Spencers mum) and Mrs. Bathe (William B.'s mum) for bringing in your darling babies and answering our questions.  

This week we have began exploring toys from the past and comparing them to toys from today.  We made our wooden puppets with or parents in our sharing assembly. They came out lovely and the children can't wait to bring them home!

We will be visiting the Oxfordshire Museum next week with Nightingales Class to take part in their Victorian Toys and Games workshop.

We conducted an exciting science experiment! 

The children learned that water is a material and ice is water in a different state.  We observed and timed the ice cubes melting and also discussed that by putting salt on ice, it melts quicker because salt lowers the freezing point of water.
