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.

Reading Buddies for Book Week!
More pictures from reading buddies the week! Our students truly enjoyed reading with a partner during snack/story. Was lovely seeing how engaged they all were!
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.
