Hello Everyone! Today, I am going to tell you something unique about our school. Guess what? It is....the class names! It is a bit not interesting if we only call by the grade. Which is why, each and every class in my school has a specific name. I interviewed my school teachers to know what are the reasons for them to choose different class names. So below, is what the teachers told me.
Nursery - Playful Pandas
"Well, pandas are really cute and kind of a baby type. They are also playful. So, since the nursery kids are little, cute and playful, that is the reason why I named them as Playful Pandas."
Prekindergarten 1 - Cuddly Bears
"Teddy bear is a favorite soft toy among the children. It is not exclusive for any gender. Both little boys and girls like it. They use it when they go to sleep, or when they are alone. They are close to it, and when they hug it, it comforts them. The kids who are around 3 years old, they love to cuddle. Specially it can affect the new comers to the school. I want them to feel the school as their home. So when I hug them, they are really happy and they start to feel better and comfortable. So that is why I named them Cuddly Bears."
Prekindergarten 1 - Creative Caterpillars
"As you know in the life cycle of caterpillars, they are very young to become butterflies and fly in the sky. So in Prek1, my students are still in the process of growing up. But as soon as they leave my class, they will become fully bloomed beautiful butterflies. So I say that children are born with wings and teachers are the ones to help them fly."
Prekindergarten 2 - Ducklings
"Ducklings are always happy, cute and smart, and they help each other to reach their goals. In my classroom, I am like their mother duck and they follow whatever I say and do. So they are my cute little ducklings."
Kindergarten - Dynamic Dolphins
"I really like the way Dolphins move. In my class, my students are so dynamic and can't stay still, just like the dolphins. That is why they are called Dynamic Dolphins."
Grade 1 - Soaring Eagles "Since Grade 1 is the first elementary class, they need a good take off to go to higher grades. An eagle is a big bird who is brave, independent and strong. So I named them Soaring Eagles."
Grade 2 - Kestrels "We are birds and we can fly high. We can reach whatever goal we want to. So we are Grade 2 Kestrels."
Grade 2 - Trail Blazers
"My students always go blazing around and leave a trail of success. So they are Trail Blazers."
Grade 3 - Bright Owls
"Owls represent the love for learning and books. I really want my students to be smart and intelligent, which means bright.
O - Outstanding
L - Learners
Since my students are outstanding wonderful learners, I call them Bright Owls."
Grade 3 - Unique Unicorns
"Unicorn is a mythical animal and it represents good luck. For my students, I wish them good luck and I want them to be different and unique from others. I also want them to carry a good message as they grow up. So I named them Unique Unicorns."
Grade 4 - Fantastic "Grade 4 students are, F - Funny A - Artistic N - Nice T - Truthful A - Awesome S - Studious T - Talented
I - Inquisitive C - Creative So they are, Fantastic!
Grade 5 - Voyagers
A voyager is a person who travels. That is why some spaceships are also named as Voyager because spaceships travel in space. And so are grade 5 students who travel through the world of knowledge.
Grade 6 - Explorers
This is the class that I am learning now. As the senior most class, we will be leaving the school very soon. So before leaving, we are learning and exploring many things to train ourselves. We always have to become role models for the people around us. We are wanderers, and that is why we are called Grade 6 Explorers!

This seems like a very cool concept and the names also make sense

Hi Thanumi! I think that this was a really great post because you actually interviewed the teachers to get reasons why the names were like that and not just listed them. But when I was reading your one sentence, I think it says "are" instead of "our". My favorite name was also the Playful Pandas. What is your favorite name?
