Hope you are all feeling well rested and have had a lovely summer. I can’t believe how quickly the summer has gone!
I thought I better just check in with everyone and let you know about the first week. Monday is an INSET.
On Tuesday I will come out onto the playground at 8:40, so if there is anything you want to talk to me about, please feel free to come over. Just to remind you all that the children will be saying goodbye to you at the side gate and I will be leading them around to the cloakroom and classroom. Please can the Year 2 children support the Year 1’s (just incase we have any tears).
I will be easing the children in on Tuesday. I will try to listen to all the Year 1’s read and assign reading books. I will also give new books to the Year 2’s. I will listen to them read throughout the week.
Normally in the afternoons Year 1 will be returning to Hedgehogs as part of their transition. However, Mrs Shoubridge is doing home visits in the first week so the Year 1’s will be staying in Foxes.
This term we will be looking at the text ‘The Jolly Postman’ please do not tell the children. Each week we will study a different fairy tale. In maths, we will be focusing on place value. More detail to follow at the end of week 1 when I send out my newsletters.
In the afternoons we will be having Science. I hope to be able to teach PE on the Friday afternoon. I will confirm this once I have spoken to the other staff.
Any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
See you all on Tuesday 🙂
