Welcome back to a new school year and welcome to Gold Class.
I am Ainhoa your child’s teacher and Alberta, Samantha, Tomas and Tracy- Ann are the teaching assistants. Nicola is our meal time supervisor. We will all be working together with your child this year. The children in Gold Class are Bryan, Frank, Diego, Joseph, Jason, Kidus, Samuel and Zabarina.
We would like to inform you about a few of the routines in Gold class. Home school books should be sent back and forth in school bags and will be checked daily. Please remember to read them daily in case of any messages and also use it to communicate with the class team. We would like to encourage the use of chat books, please use them as instructed [on the label inside the chat book] and send to school each week, this activity between home and school will help us to develop your child’s speaking and listening skills.
This term dance is on Wednesday, PE is on Thursday and swimming will be on Friday. If there are any changes to the timetable we will let you know. Once we start swimming we will alternate the children weekly. However if there are children absent, late or not able to swim your child may get more opportunities to swim so please send your child’s swimming kit in weekly. We will notify you when swimming will be starting for Gold Class.
The class topic this term is ‘Making thing happen’ and the children will be exploring and discovering different ways to make things happen or move.
Please remember to send in extra clothes [tops, bottoms, vests, socks, tights, underwear etc.] for any unexpected accidents, we can keep these in school. Please NAME ALL clothes. Also if you have a pair of wellies for your child that can stay in school, please send them in so they can be used for outside play on wet days.
Home activities will be given on a Friday and will be stuck in the chatbook, it will suggest activities to try at home with your child which link to their learning at school. Please have a go at completing this with your child.
