Weekly Update – T1W1

Good Afternoon,

It has been a very fun first two days here in Year 1/2. I am sure the children will sleep well tonight 🙂

It has been great getting to know the students and I hope they are now feeling a little more settled and ready for a great year ahead.

We spent the last two days getting to know each other and learning our class routines. Today, I can already see what good listeners they are and what a great team they will be!

We read several stories to help us learn our new routines and help the children feel welcome and loved! My all time favourite is “Our class is a Family”. We made our very own class family bracelets (which the girls enjoyed more than the boys) hehe 🙂

We learned about good choices and bad choices and spoke about what kind of class we would like to be. I was impressed by the students’ eagerness to be good students and I loved watching the Year 2 children be fantastic role models. Well done!

Today we read the book “The Dot” and spoke about growth mindset – one of our school’s core values. We decided to see if we could be as good as the character in the book and use our growth mindset to make beautiful dots. I can’t wait to put a display together next week as they did such a fantastic job! Pictures to follow.

The students took home library books today. These will be sent home every Friday and should be returned the following Friday in the plastic case they were given. Homework will also be sent in the same file case and I would really appreciate it if you could make sure they use this as it makes it easier for their little hands to carry everything 🙂

I hope everyone had a great first few days and rests up over the weekend. Get ready for our first fun week together!

Trainee Teacher

Next week Ms Temple, our trainee teacher will be joining us. She will be in our Class on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We are very lucky to have two teachers twice a week and I am sure the students will love her.

Parent Open Afternoon

Next Thursday 1st September, I would love to meet you all at our Parent Open Afternoon. It will begin at 2:45 and should last around 30 minutes. I will talk about our curriculum and it is a nice opportunity to ask any questions you may have 🙂

Have a lovely weekend and I will see you all on Monday! <3
