Welcome to Year 1A
Hello everybody! My name is Miss Craig and I will be your teacher this year. I am very excited for the great adventures and learning we'll share together over the course of the year. The teaching assistant in our class is Mrs Emilia. We hope you have had a lovely break, and we can't wait to see you all!
School Routine: Children will be able to come on the playground from 8:40am and we will open the doors from 8:45am. Children will enter through the cloak room door, however parents are not permitted to enter into the cloak room. Year 1 children will exit at 3pm via the cloak room doors also. Due to traffic around school parents may wait on the school playground at the end of the school day, however we would appreciate it if you would wear a face covering and depart the playground as quickly as possible.
Class Dojo: Your child will be coming home with a class dojo activation letter. We will be using class dojo to reward work, behaviour and participating in class. We will also use it to communicate with you throughout the year. We can instantly share messages, updates and photos from class. It is a great way to see what your child has been up to in class. Please follow the instructions on the letter sent home to set up your account and instantly see updates from us.
Reading: Your child will be given a reading book and a reading diary to bring home and read. They will need to keep their reading diary and books in their book bags to bring to school every day. Children can change books when their diary has been signed by someone at home to show they have read the book at least twice. All books finished will be placed in a box for 72 hours before they get put back out. It is important you read at least 5 minutes with your child daily. The children will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy books throughout the week at school.
If you have anymore questions or queries, please let us know!
See you all soon!
Miss Craig and Mrs Emilia
