Be the Best that you can Be
Hello and welcome to Hillary Class. We look forward to welcoming the new children to our setting to join the current FS1 children. We are really excited about getting to know you and your child over the year as their learning journey begins. As the Class teacher I will be available before and after School if you have any queries or questions. Mrs Morris is our wonderful Teaching Assistant working along side us too. Every Thursday Morning Mrs Burdell will be covering Hillary Class teaching PE and Science with the full support of Mrs Morris.
We will very soon be giving all of the children in Hillary Class a reading book and reading diary, also a story book for you to share with your child at home. In Hillary Class we listen to the children read at least twice a week, therefore your child will need their reading books and reading diaries with them at school every day. Please ensure that you listen to your child read at least three times a week at home to ensure that your child becomes familiar with their reading books and becomes a confident reader.
The children will also need their PE kits with them all week, they will need to bring it to School with them on a Monday and take them home again on a Friday. Please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled as we can not take responsibility for lost property.
We encourage the children to drink water throughout the day, please feel free to send your child in with a water bottle and a pair of wellingtons too for our outdoor activities.
Thank you Miss Weselby and Mrs Morris
A very big thank you to Rowan's Mummy for sharing a story with the children in Hillary Class. The children really enjoyed listening to Herman's Letter.

We would just like to say a huge thank you to Darwin's Daddy and Lizzie and Louisa's Mummy for coming in to visit Hillary Class and sharing a story with us. The children loved it and it was a wonderful experience for them to hear a story from a different grown up. We would love more parents to come and visit our class thank you.
World Book Day

A Wonderful Winter Day
We had a super winter day in Hillary Class. The children enjoyed investigating ice and observed it freezing and melting, they learnt about igloos and used the construction resources to build some. They created some beautiful snowflake art work and were very interested in learning about the Northern Lights and producing some beautiful pictures too.
The children in Hillary Class are always so busy learning we hope you enjoy the photographs of the amazing children busy exploring and learning.
A Wonderful, Winter Wellington Walk
This morning we had a wonderful winter walk. We observed the changes from our autumn walk and spoke about how we could tell it is winter. The children enjoyed looking at the crunchy, icy puddles and talking about why there was ice.
What a super afternoon the children in Hillary have had. We played some really fun party games, had some lovely party food and a special visitor came to see us!
Thinking about Christmas
Today in Hillary Class we looked at photographs of Bethlehem and thought about why it is a very special place for Christians. The children then decided to draw some beautiful and detailed drawings of Bethlehem and use the construction materials to build their own Bethlehem.
