We have had an excellent first term in Class 8!
The children have settled in remarkably well and are all happy to be back at school with their friends. They have all worked very hard in this term and I am sure that will continue throughout the year. They are an excellent class and I am very happy and proud to be their teacher.
If you have any questions about anything regarding your children, our class or our school, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be in touch as soon as possible.
Thank you to all the families for your patience and kindness during our return to school. Thank you also for the support that you have given to your children.
In Class 8, the teachers are Mr Ward, Ms Aziz and Mrs Parveen.
Our PE day is Tuesday. Please send children to school on this day wearing their full PE kit as well as their school jumper. As a reminder, school PE kit consists of:
Children will remain in their PE kit all day and will still play out at play-times so please dress appropriately and consider the weather on the day.
We will hear children read throughout the week. Each child will read to one of the teachers at least once a week. We will endeavour to change their books on a regular basis but some children may be asked to keep a book for a number of days. This is designed to improve their confidence and fluency and help them to make faster progress. Their reading book is carefully matched to their phonics ability. Please do not worry if your child finds their reading book easy - they are supposed to! We request that you spend at least 10 minutes a day listening to your child read at home. This is essential to support their progress in all areas of their learning - not just reading.
Each child will receive home learning. This will usually consist of literacy and maths but could be replaced with a project, research or other task relating to a 'topic' area. This will be given out on a Wednesday and should be returned by Monday. If you have any questions about your child's home learning, please contact me on the email address provided above.
