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, History is our focus curriculum subject and we will be learning about the perilous journey of Sir Earnest Shackleton! There has been lots of talk about him in the news recently – if you hear anything, please come and tell me so that we can find out more in our lessons!
We are also going to be learning how to write a biography in our literacy lessons. We are looking forward to finding out and writing all about our friends as we learn what we need to write a biography. Have you ever read somebody's biography before? Come and show us or tell us all about them!
