We would like to welcome you back to a new school year. As you already know your child is in Silver class and the logo is ‘silver rings’. My name is Marlene, and I am your child’s teacher. The rest of the team are Shirley, Faith Serena, and our meal supervisor Aretha. We look forward to working with your child this year and hope that you all have an enjoyable year with us.
For your information, physical sessions are the following days:
Tuesday- PE Thursday- Swimming Friday- Dance
Please send your child in with swimming trunks/costume (swim nappy if necessary) and a towel. Swimming clothes will be sent back home when your child has a swimming session and is expected to be sent back in for following week please. For PE and Dance, please send in a t–shirt and shorts/ jogging bottoms for your child to change into, these will be kept at school.
This term our Themed Curriculum (Art/DT, Science, History/Geography) will be based on the topic ‘Making Things Work’. For PE, we will be focusing on Gymnastics, where the children will focus on how to balance, and explore their own movements in different ways; also following instructions about how to pace themselves and using their bodies to keep in control of their movements.
We would like to remind you about a few routines in Silver class. Home school books will be sent home every day to let you know what your child has done during the school day. It is also there for you to communicate with the class team to keep us up to date with anything you need us to know, for example s/he did not sleep well, has important letter in their bag.
We would also like to encourage you to use chat books, which help to develop your child’s speaking and listening skills. This will be sent home every Friday along with homework.
All the best, from Marlene and Silver Class Team.
