“Preparing our children for all of their tomorrows”

Welcome to Hawks Class 

General Information

Hawks Staff:

Miss Smith is the class teacher. 

Mrs Johnson is our new TA, you can find her at the door each morning. 


PE Days: 

We will be doing outdoor PE on Thursday and indoor PE on Friday. However there could be additional slots or changes to the timetable so the children will need their PE kit in school everyday. PE kits are kept on their pegs. If your child has their ears pierced they will need to take their earrings out themselves or not wear them on PE days.


Reading Records: 

Reading is a key focus in Hawks and we love to hear all about the books your children are reading. Reading records are checked every Wednesday by Mrs Johnson, please ensure child comes to school with their record in their bag. Every day of reading counts towards an end of term reward so the more read the more points!.

Hawks Class Charter 

We spent a little time thinking about some class rules that we all think we should follow to allow us to learn, enjoy ourselves and keep safe. Take a look at the Hawk class charter display!

Autumn Term Quest


Our Autumn Quest was ... POLE TO POLE!!


We explored all things polar in our foundation subjects this term. Take a look at the quest overview below to see what we learnt in each subject during our Pole to Pole quest. 

Spring Term Quest 

Our Spring Quest was ... CHOCCYWOCCYDOODAH


We have learnt about all things chocolate during our 'CHOCCYWOCCYDOODAH' quest! Take a look at the quest overview below to see what we learnt in each subject this term.  

Hawks class LOVED this quest, it was their favourite so far!

We loved making rice crispy cakes in our big bang. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was our much loved class text and a strong influence in our writing and class assembly. We wrapped up the term with our epic chocolate workshop. It's safe to say we ended on a (sugar) high!

Summer Term Quest


 Our Summer term quest is … EARTH, WIND & FIRE

We will be exploring all things plants in science and the Great Fire of London in history.


Home learning expectations:


  • The children should be reading at home everyday to practice their decoding skills and comprehension.
  • All children will bring home 2 Read, Write Inc books weekly depending on the group they are in. One will be in the form of an e-book and one will be a book bag book. These are the most important books to practise as they rehearse the skills they have been taught in school. Experience shows that children make good progress if these books are practised at home. The e-books are on their Oxford Owl accounts. (see passwords and usernames inside your child's reading record.)
  • They can also pick any book from the class book box to take home to encourage reading for pleasure. These books can be read by them or shared together with family. 
  • Once the children have finished RWI their reading will be assessed and they will take home a 'free reading' book.
  • We will also be visiting the school library on a monday, where the children can choose a book as long as they remember to return their previous book.


  • It's always handy to practise handwriting when you get a chance. Maybe encourage them to practise the formation of letters or their joins depending on what level of handwriting they are at.  
  • The children will have weekly spellings that they are learning in school. Spellings will be sent home and tested each monday. 


  • Children should regularly be practicing to count in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards. They should also practise to count on and count back from any number. For example to count on in 10s from 34... 34, 44, 54, 64.
  • Children should regularly practise quickfire addition to develop their mental calculation and knowledge of number facts. For example, doubling, halving, number bond.
  • Home learning may be set on MyMaths to consolidate learning from the classroom.
  • To see the methods we use please see the calculation policy below.
