WELCOME TO AUTUMN TERM 2018!
A very special welcome to the new Reception children and their parents! The children have all settled in really well and are very happy in school. This has been helped by the lovely, sensible Year 1 and 2 children who have been very kind and caring to the new members of the class. Come in to the entrance and look at the photos taken during the first few days of school!
Our topic this term is Journeys! Work will include looking at the history of transport, space travel, map work, journeys to school, vehicle model making and clay printing. The children have already started their English work based on the series of books about Mr Gumpy.
Thank you to those parents who were able to come to the Meet the Teacher sessions. For those of you who missed it, the following areas were discussed:
Reception parents- Please ensure that wellies are in school every Monday.
Our PE days will be Mondays or Fridays so, again, please make sure that kits are in school all week in case of last minute changes to our PE day. PLEASE PLEASE name all items of clothing to avoid any confusion!
Our Show and Tell day will be on Thursdays, and your child will let you know when it's their turn to bring in something to share with the rest of the class.
Homework for Y1 and Y2 will be given out every Tuesday and needs to be completed and handed in by the following Monday. Our spelling test will take place every Tuesday and will be done at the back of the homework book so that you can see how well your child is doing.
Don't forget that all children in our class are entitled to a free school dinners so keep an eye on the menu to take advantage of this.
School milk is available for all pupils (under fives are free) but you will need to register your child at www.coolmilk.com.
DATES FOR YOUR DIARY:
Parents' evenings are 16th and 17th October and provide a chance to discuss your child's well being and achievements.
Our Welcome Ceremony for Reception children and any new children to the school, will take place on Tuesday 9th October at 9.00am. I hope you can join us!
If you ever have any queries or concerns, please come and speak to me at any time before or after school.
Vouchers have been sent home which help us to develop a complete developmental picture of your child, by recording any significant learning that he or she has experienced at home e.g. being able to read labels and prices in the supermarket, riding a bike without stabilisers, tying shoe laces, doing up coat buttons for the first time, helping to make a cup of tea! We love sharing them with the class and finding out about their achievements outside school.
If you need any more WOW vouchers, please pick them up from the classroom. Your help and support is much appreciated. Thank you.
