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.
We had so many achievements at Forest school today. It was lovely to wander through Forest School and hear the children talking to each other about what they were doing and being eager to share their discoveries. A few drainpipes and some water, and the children talked about creating 'rivers of water'...on further questioning, they were talking about how all rivers led to the sea, and this was being recreated in the mud. When others came over to find out what was happening, they were encouraged to join in and help; some real teamwork! This teamwork was everywhere you went - from building dens and camouflaging together to searching for frogs (8 found today!) in our newly opened pond!
We saw so many children overcome obstacles; persevering and succeeding. Whether it was 'sticking at' a task - using a palm drill to drill holes in conkers - or using a flint and steel to light a fire for the first time. A great afternoon!!
Making, playing and exploring
It was a hive of activity on 26th September with Kennedy class in Forest School; every child was absorbed in an activity during every minute of their time there. Whether it was working together to build a den, hanging out together in a tree, sawing and drilling to make a car, baking a cake in the mud kitchen, trying to keep a fire going - or just chilling out and chatting during snack time; it was all happening!
