All the children appear to have settled back into school quickly and are ready to get on with learning. We welcome Liam into our class this year.
Miss Amy Clements is a teaching student on a placement with us until February.
Just to remind you Mrs Cumming will be in class on Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Hinton on Wednesday and Thursday, we will alternate on Fridays.
Please ensure that your child has their reading book and diary every day as reading will take place daily (with the occasional exception) with homework given. All children should have a T-shirt and shorts for PE to be kept in school.
Monday: Music with Miss Grigor and spelling homework given out to be returned on Friday.
Thursday: PE with Mrs Duncan and Numeracy homework given out to be returned the following Wednesday.
Literacy and Numeracy will be taught every day. The class will also be continuing to learn French, Topic, Science, Health and Wellbeing, Maths, Religious and Moral Education, Handwriting, ICT and problem solving.
Every child will be given a times tables challenge card. This is to help them learn their tables and will be awarded certificates on successful recall of times tables facts. Please make sure your child has this with them every day. If your child feels they are ready to be tested on a times table they should let us know.
Next week: The school photographer will be in school on Tuesday and Wednesday.
As always if you have any questions or concerns please contact us.
We look forward to working with you and your child this year.
Karen Hinton and Lisa Cumming
