It has been lovely to meet my new class. The children have really settled in and seem to be doing very well. At the moment their well being is priority. At this stage in Year 1 - its known as the transition stage. The first term will be devoted to completing the early learning goals from reception. This may take longer as pupils have missed school. At the same time we are following the Year 1 curriculum. I will not set homework at the moment as I feel pupils are still settling in their routine. However reading( reading books and library books), is important on a daily basis. This is part of their homework.
GO-Read- the online reading record- I have been sick with a cold so I didn't manage to send you all a password for the reading record on Friday. This will be given out this week.
Reading books will be given out every Monday and collected on a Friday.
Library books will continue to be given out on Fridays and handed in every week
on a Friday.
