Welcome to Tigers!
Our team consists of Mr Symons-Chan, Mrs Sansom, Mrs Pope and Mrs Ramsay.
We are the bridge between Foundation Stage and Year 2.
Outside of school, I have two boys and I can usually be found at Legoland Windsor. I am usually being taken around the Pirate Land by my youngest and my eldest just wants to go everywhere in the park.
In addition to Tigers class I have the responsibility of P.E. within the school.
Interesting facts about us:
Mr Symons-Chan cannot ride a bike, but can ride horses. I also spent a lot of time in France in my younger years.
Mrs Sansom is a keen music fan, she has a soft spot for Sir Cliff Richard and is educating me in the ways of things which are uniquely east London.
Mrs Pope and Mrs Ramsay are our amazing helpers, they are stars within Tigers.
We also currently have Miss Miles on placement with us until the end of June 2014.
Homework on the Tigers site.
The Tigers team currently post a copy of the homework on this home page. The homework will either be an attachment that could be downloaded or instructions written directly onto the web page. A hard copy version is always provided and this service is intended to ensure that tasks can be easily accessible if originals have been lost. However, we cannot guarantee how long the activities will remain listed on this section of the website.
We hope this is useful to you.

Blinged Bikes and Scooters.

Tigers section of the Easter Story.
The Tigers class chose to make an illustration of the Tuesday of the Easter Story. The event was Jesus washing people's feet (John chapter 12 versus 1-11). Our illustration was so big it took 4 children to hold it up in assembly whilst another child read the bible reference.
Each child in the class drew, coloured and cut out the different characters in the story, they chose to draw and cut out palm leaves to add to the picture.
The children in Tigers Class made picture frames for Mothers Day. First we looked at a simple hinge. They said they had never made a hinge before. However, we folded a piece of paper in half to show a very basic hinge. They all said:
"of course we have all done that before."
The project then developed into making picture frames using different types of hinges as the stand. The children developed and modified their own ideas and designs after a draft frame was made.
Their actual frames were their own work, they demonstrated: detailed cutting, using different materials (our science link) and adhesives (Pritt stick, glue gun, masking tape).
The children also decided to decorate the sides of the frame using cut out shapes (flowers and hearts) and then it developed into a 3d pop decoration.
The design and development of the children's work has been amazing to see. Naturally, there are some refinements that the children identified, but a really great effort from Tigers Class. It was also brilliant to see the class help each other using their range of different skills...great team work!
Digiduck's adventure to Year 1.
Zoe Hoddle from Bracknell Forest came to visit us in school to tell us about the adventures of Digiduck.
We had Zoe share Digiduck's adventure and message to us all the Year 1 children in the Tigers classroom. It was a lovely and informative session we had with Digiduck.
We hope Digiduck and Zoe will visit again.
3d Shape work.
In our Numeracy sessions we looked at 3d shapes. We had a chance to make cuboids and triangular prisms amongst other shapes. Luckily, we were able to make homes out of the shapes and we created a simple village. This also linked to our topic work of Houses and homes, DT, and science work at the time.
