The time has come for us to pack away our summer clothes and return back to school. I can’t believe where the time has gone, but I would like to say welcome back for a new year in Elm Class! I am so excited to welcome everyone into their new class with their new teacher. I hope that you will have as much fun learning and I will from teaching you all.
PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday is indoor PE and Thursday is outdoor PE, so please make sure that you have the right kit with you for those days. Earrings are not allowed during PE so please don’t wear them or you have a safe place to put them during our lessons. Also, long hair needs to be tied back so bring a spare hair band.
Homework will be given on a Friday and expected back on the following Thursday.
We will also be doing a weekly spelling test. The spellings will be given to you on Friday and the test will be the following Thursday.
Reading is very important and therefore, you need to be reading 3 times a week. Please make sure that your reading folders and books come to school every day.
Again, I am so excited to begin this new term with you all and I hope you are ready to learn lots of new things!
