Meet your teachers
Hi everyone my name is MIss Hayes and I have been a part of Monkwood for 10 years now. I am a mummy to two gorgeous children, Ruby 15 and Joshua who is 4. I absolutely love going on adventures with them at the weekends and my favourite holiday place is the Lake District where we go every year. I love walking and exploring in the outdoors. In my spare time I enjoy being creative; drawing and making things for our classroom.
I can’t wait to meet you all and hear all about you and we are going to make such an amazing class family.

Meet your teachers
At the start of your child’s school journey we ensure that the children build secure relationships with the adults and learn the routines of the classroom. You will be asked to sign up to Class Dojo that enables you to see the amazing learning and progress your children make in school.
In FS2 we like to read with your child every week to ensure they learn a love of reading, children will be asked to bring their book bag into school on Friday’s.
As we spend lots of time outdoors we ask that children have a coat and a pair of boots or wellies to ensure they can go out in all weathers. We are dedicated to working in partnership with parents and love to involve the whole family in your child’s learning journey.
Areas of Learning
In FS2 we start by exploring the woodland around us and learning about the animals who live there. Then we will learn about people who help us in our community. We love to tell stories and will learn all about traditional tales. Next we learn about growing in our garden and all about farm animals. To end our year together we will talk about holidays and the animals that live under the sea.
