Welcome to Oak Class!
We have had a nice few days getting settled and getting to know each other with our Summer memories strips. The children have had some lovely summer adventures!
I am looking forward to getting to know the children and their families and beginning our Year 1 journey! We have lots of interesting learning activities planned, starting with the theme 'This is Me!'.
A challenge for the children: Do you know which country you live in? What is the capital city? Which town do you live in? I will be asking you the answers in class soon!
Some of my favourite things are travel (I have been exploring some of America over the summer holidays), musical theatre, animals (especially elephants), reading stories and drinking cups of tea!
Next Wednesday at 3pm parents and carers are invited to a 'Meet the teacher' session where some important information will be shared regarding Oak Class. If you are unable to attend the meeting, here are some things you need to know:-
P.E. days are Wednesdays and Thursdays (please make sure all PE kit is named and that your child has some trainers for outdoor PE).
Library books are changed every other week on Tuesdays but children are welcome to return their book to school any day if they have finished with it - we have a yellow box in class to return them to.
Homework will be emailed to you on a Friday starting next week. Purple homework books are for children to practise their skills and do not need to come back to school.
If you have any questions about the above information, please come in and speak to me at the end of any day. Alternatively, phone or email the school and I will reply as soon as I can.
As part of our 'This is Me' topic, can children bring a photo of themselves as a baby to school for the week beginning the 16th September. We are going to see how much they have changed!
