          Hawks  

Welcome back to the Summer Term.  Before we commence this our new topic, the children will be fnishing off a couple of bit of work from World War II topic.  

Our new topic this term will be Imagine, Believe, Achieve and will have a science focus and a historical focus in the second term.  

Organisation

Mondays - Mrs Halfhide

Tuesdays - Mrs Phillips

Wednesdays - Mrs Phillips

Thursdays - Mrs Halfhide

Fridays - Mrs Halfhide

As you can see from above Mrs Phillips and I will be sharing the Hawks to a greater extent this year due to the fact that I have taken on some additional management responsibilities.  Please feel free to approach either of use if you have any concerns, no matter how small, and we will endeavor to help. There have been some changes to support this year. At present Hawk Class is supported by the wonderful Mrs Tallent and Mrs Grant, who have stepped into the roles of Mrs Nevard and Mrs Hill.
