Miles, Emma, Simone and Kirsteen would like to welcome you all to the Hawks Class. It promises to be an exciting year with lots of lovely trips and exciting lessons. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to come in and speak to us or just pick up the phone.
Hawks Class will be swimming every second half term (PLEASE NOTE SWIMMING IS NOW ON A WEDNESDAY). Reminders will be sent out in the diary.
We would be grateful if all children could come to school with a PE kit to be kept in school. It will be returned for washing at the end of each term.
At morning break we offer the children fruit or toast. If your child would like toast then we ask for 25p per day to be sent in. For ease of administration please send in either weekly or a larger amount termly.
There is no need to send in a water bottle for regular drinks as water is available in class and is given at regular intervals.
Friday afternoon is 'Enrichment Afternoon'. This is an opportunity for the children to learn new skills and engage in activities that they otherwise might not experience. Here are an example of some of the exciting things they will be doing:-
Learn the Green Cross Code
Make a sandwich
Do a blindfold taste test
To climb something taller than me
All of the children will have an 'Enrichment Booklet' which will be sent home with a variety of ideas that you might like to try at home. If you do complete any please send in a photo and we will stamp the book.
As part of the school's 'Active Learning' agenda we will be engaging in at least 30 minutes of physical activity daily. Activites will include the 'Daily Mile', 'Cosmic Yoga', '5 a day' and 'Wii Dance'
