In KS1 we are named after the characters from The Wind in the Willows. We chose Mr Toad, he is bubbly, determined and full of enthusiasm, just like us. In year 1/2 we are 'tenacious' in all that we do... we certainly are a class of Tenacious Toads.
In our class, Miss Guest is our teacher. She loves Wind in the Willows. In the classroom we even have her copy of the book from when she was a little girl. It is very old, from 1984!
Miss Gale works in our class too, she loves art and being creative. We look forward to her lessons.
We also have Mrs Kinsey working in Tenacious Toads too. Her favourite subject at school is Forest Schools and we cannot wait to get out into the Forest Schools Area with her, later in the year.
Our classroom is full of lots of exciting things to explore and learn. We can read quietly in Our Reading Riverbank. We have stories to choose, we can use the puppets to tell stories we know or ones we have made up.
There is even a non-fiction table where we can read information texts, use the I pad and look at the globe. When we have found something interesting, we add to a leaf. Then our 'fact' is displayed in on The Tenacious Toads' Tree of Knowledge.
It is all our own work.
Well, that is us in a nutshell.
Please keep up to date with all of the new things we are learning in our weekly updates.
