We are very much looking forward to being your teachers in September!
Information for grown-ups!
At 8:45am school will start and it will finish at 3:25pm. Our waiting area is just outside our exterior classroom door at the beginning and end of the day. In the morning, an adult will come out to greet the children and they will line up ready to come in to class. We will sanitise hands on the way in to class. Parents can leave children in the line, and adults will help children settle into class.
PE will be every Tuesday - children should come to school in PE kit suitable for the weather on the day. Children should wear dark tracksuit/shorts, a white t-shirt, sensible trainers.
We would love children to still bring their puddle suit and wellies to school to keep here - so we can still go out on days when the weather isn't so lovely!
Children don't need to bring much in to school with them each day. They should just have their coat, a book bag or other similar small bag (we don't have space for large bags) and a sports-style water bottle (no screw cap or wide neck bottles please as we have lots of spills otherwise). If children bring a lunch box, they will place it in the box provided as they come in to class.
Our classroom looks very different now than how it will in September. As I create our new classroom over the summer I will post pictures on here. When it is all finished I will send a message to let you know, so you can come and have a look. I hope you have a wonderful holiday!
