Hello Reception children from Mrs Harkin-Perry and Mrs Oakley, your new teachers. Although we are one Reception class, because there are so many of us, we will be split into two groups, Apple Tree and Cherry Tree. We will all be following the same activities and working closely together. Mrs Oakley is the Apple Tree teacher and Mrs Harkin-Perry is the Cherry Tree teacher.
To begin with, we will concentrate on settling you into school life. We have all had such a disrupted year, but we will try to make your first weeks at school as calm, safe and fun as we can and we are sure that we will all become firm friends.
We will begin our school year by becoming explorers! As well as exploring our new school, we will explore the world. We will be exploring the land, under the sea, in the air and even venturing into space! We thought the best way to begin our adventure is to become pirates and explore the seven seas together! So, welcome aboard shipmates! Let the adventure begin!
Cherry Tree Class
Hello! My name is Mrs Harkin-Perry, but I'm usually called Mrs HP. I live with my husband and we are hoping to soon add to our household by getting a dog.
I like finding out how things work, so enjoy science and I particularly love history and discovering how we did things in the past. I enjoy singing and always try to include music into anything I do and I like to make up rhymes and poems.
When not in school I like to walk and cycle and visit historic houses, castles and other old buildings. I also help with training First Aid with St John Ambulance and like to help people when I can.
I'm really looking forward to meeting you all in September and can't wait to start exploring the world with you. Catch my story on the "Video Resource Centre".
