Hello and welcome to the Squirrels class page. I am Miss Woods, the squirrels class teacher and Design and Technology lead (which you can find our more about in the 'Design and Technology' section of the website under the 'curriculum' tab).
I love being creative and finding new ways to solve problems which is why I enjoy crocheting so much! I love finding new patterns and challenging myself to see what I can make. It is also why I am so passionate about D&T as it allows everyone to be creative and helps to develop the children's problem solving skills.
I think it is very important to work together within our classroom to make sure everyone feels welcome and special. The 6 Rs help us to make everyone feel welcome within our class so we are always striving to follow them as much as we can.
This term, in History, we will be learning all about the amazing discoveries of Florence Nightingale! She made so many changes to history and we can’t wait to find out all about the the impact she has had on the world.
In Art, we will be exploring the artistic medium of painting! We will be looking at the works of Piet Mondrian and learning all about the effects of bright and bold colours in our work!
In Science, we will be looking at animals including humans. There is so much to discover about the creatures all around the world! Do you have a favourite creature? Why don’t you come and let us know all about it!
