Hockney class

Welcome to Hockney Class!


Miss Hellary and Mrs Morton are looking forward to a fun filled half term.


We are starting the new school year with a unit called 'Brainwave'. For the first two weeks we will be finding out all about our brains and how we can make them stronger to be the best learners we can be.


Our next unit for the rest of the half term is called 'Day in the Life' and we will be finding out about different occupations. The topic newsletter will be sent out soon so keep a look out to see what we will be covering in each subject.


We will keep you posted with all our learning on our Class Dojo story-it is great to see how many parents have signed up so far!

Wow! What a great start to the new school year!


As you can see from the photo above we have been very busy already. In our Maths learning we have been sorting, counting and using numbers as labels. In Phonics we have been recapping the sounds we learned in Reception and have already learned new sounds for our Storytime Phonics washing line.


We are lucky enough to have the opportunity to have Reading Buddies from Picasso every Tuesday afternoon. All of the children in Hockney partner up with an older child, choose a book from the library and share it together.


Most importantly we have all been hired by 'Professor Spark' to learn about our brains and how we can be good learners. He even trusted us to perform a brain operation to see if we could find out what the brain does! Myself and Mrs Morton are so impressed with how well the children have settled and cannot wait for the rest of the year!
