Green 1

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to Green 1!
I hope you have had a lovely summer! My name is Miss Littlechild and I am the G1 class teacher. This year myself and your children have the pleasure of supporting Miss Taylor during her teacher training year. We are looking forward to a fantastic year of teaching and getting to know your fabulous children. Our class Teaching Assistant is Ms Reggie and our HLTA is Mrs Ankrah. Feel free to check out our photos in the reception office!

Our topic question for this half term is ‘How are we connected to each other?’. We will be learning about ourselves, our families and friends, and what makes us special.

P.E
For this half term our P.E will be on Wednesday. Please ensure that your child brings their P.E kit in every Wednesday. The School P.E kit consists of; a T-shirt, jogging bottoms or shorts, socks and a pair of trainers.

I am happy for your child to leave their P.E kit in school during each half term. They will then be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed.

Reading/Book bags
Home reading makes a real difference to children’s learning and progress. Thank you in advance for your support. It would be great if you could spend 10/15 minutes each evening reading with your child, please then sign the journal. The journal needs to be signed before we can change your child’s book. The children will have the opportunity to take three books from our school collection and these will be changed once a week.

Punctuality
Just to remind you that school starts at 8:50 and finishes at 3:15. Please bring your child straight into the classroom where they will immediately start their learning for the day. Please help your child to be in school on time so they do not miss out on the teaching and learning.

Medical
Please make sure the office has up to date details of any allergies or medical conditions your child has. Also, please ensure we have the correct contact details for you.

Name labels
Our school can get quite warm throughout the year and children may need to take their jumpers off at some stage in the day. I currently have 30 children in G1 all wearing similar sized school jumpers. Please help the G1 team and your child by marking their name clearly in all items of clothes, including P.E kits.

Please ensure your child brings their book bag and has an appropriate jacket/coat with them in school every day.

If you have any questions or concerns, please come and see us. We are available after school if there is anything you would like to discuss. Feel free to come and have a chat! Alternatively, you can leave messages for us in the office and we will call you back as soon as possible.

Once again, thank you for your ongoing support.
