To my wonderful Dragonflies,
What a strange year it has been! I have really missed teaching you for the last term and it has not been the same coming to school and not seeing your lovely smiles. Despite this strange time, it has been great to see all of you continue to work hard at home and I am so proud of all what you have achieved. I have seen some of you learn to ride bikes, become fantastic bakers and spend lots of quality time with your families.
You all had a big jump from Foundation to Year 1 but you have come such a long way and have grown into independent, mature learners. You all have unique personalities and I cannot wait to see you grow and continue to have many successes as you go through the school.
Luckily for me I am teaching Year 1/2 next year so I will be working with you all again, which I am so excited about! Thank you for being such an amazing group of children and it was a privilege to have you as my first class as a Newly Qualified Teacher, you are all children I will never forget.
Thank you to parents, grandparents, friends and family members that I have had the pleasure of working with this year, the children are lucky to have such dedicated people supporting their learning.
Have a great summer holiday. Take care, see you in September!
Good morning Dragonflies!
I hope you are all well. I have loved seeing all of the work that you are doing at home, keep up the hard work! Remember to keep sending me pictures of your work or ask any questions. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Look after yourselves and keep checking back here each morning for your learning for the day.
Children will bring home their reading books everyday, please sign their reading record to show that your child has read. We encourage your children to read to you for five or ten minutes everyday. The children are prompted to change their reading books as often as possible, regular reading can make a tremendous difference to their confidence and attainment in class.
Each week the children will bring home spellings to learn. The spellings are linked to Year 1 Common Exception Words set by the National Curriculum. Spellings will go home on a friday and the spelling test will take place the following friday. Please ensure you practise your child's spellings with them daily and ask your children to spell the word without telling them the sounds (they need to practise decoding the words you say independently).
