Hello and Welcome to another year at Elleray Park School and another year for Onyx class. I am Jonny the class teacher and I am supported by Yvonne and Lisa. This is the first time that we have worked together and the first time a lot of us have worked with some of the children in the class but we have already had a fantastic time getting to know the children and just as important letting the children get to know us. One thing we have learnt already is that although we are a young class of eight boys we are an active class and we are looking forward to the experiences and challenges the year will bring.
This term our topic has been 'Into The Woods'! We have been using a slightly different approach than previous years, we have created our own story with the children actually in it. Each week the class has been going deeper into the woods and have been finding clues to help them find different creatures. The children have really enjoyed this so far and have remembered a lot what happened in previous weeks.
This term we will be having 2 different instructors coming in to teach us different activities and skills. The first will be from the military school and the second will be an archery instructor! Wish us luck!
