Hever Church of England Aided Primary School

A small school that offers your child outstanding learning opportunities

Magnolia - Year 1


Welcome to Magnolia Class

At Hever School, we know how important school is for you and your child. My name is Mrs Excell, and I am the teacher for Magnolia Class. I, together with the Magnolia class teaching assistant Mrs Davies, am more than happy to help with any queries that you may have about the curriculum and school life.


In Magnolia class, we promote a learning environment which aims at all times to be happy - because we know that happy children are responsive, receptive and enthusiastic to learning - and challenging - because we know children are capable and keen to learn, and enjoy the challenge and the achievements that come with it.


Home and school links:

We are keen to work as closely as possible with you all the way through your child’s time at primary school. Like other teachers, Magnolia staff are available to speak with you at the end of the day. There is usually a chance to have a quick word with one of the team when you drop your child off in the morning or when you collect them in the afternoon.



We regularly update our newsletters which can be found on the website, this will give a breakdown of the topics we are covering and enable you as parents the chance to discuss and explore the topics with your child at home.


Trips and volunteers:

I am always keen to have volunteers to support the progress in reading and phonics, if you would like to volunteer please speak to a member of the Office staff.

We arrange trips and visits throughout the school year to support and enhance our learning and the topics we are covering. DBS-checked parent helpers are always welcome to accompany us if there is enough room!
