Welcome back! I hope you have all had a super summer break and are ready to start a new adventure in Dosbarth Harlech. I am very lucky this year to have a small class of Year 1 children. In Class, there is myself Miss Griffiths (Class Teacher) and Miss Champion -Teaching Assistant (a really appropriate name!) They have all made an excellent start to the year and we thank you for your support so far in helping them to settle so well. During the first few weeks, our main aims will be to get to know your child and help him/her settle in to school life. Your child’s happiness is paramount to us. We want school to be a pleasurable, exciting, fun experience, a place that your child enjoys coming to, a place where he/she can relax and be him/herself.
We have lots of exciting things planned this Autumn Term, initially our first mini topic will be based around the new book ‘The Colour Monster’ by Anna LLenas. This book looks at different feelings and emotions.
P.E will take place on Thursday this year. Children are asked to come into school wearing their P.E kits. This should be suitable for outdoor P.E, as we hope to be outside as often as possible. Reminder the kit is white or royal blue t’shirt, navy/black plain tracksuit/shorts, black pumps or trainers.
Muddy Monday – This term on Monday afternoon’s we will be doing outdoor learning, much of which will be in the Forest School. We ask for all the children to come to school wearing appropriate/ old outdoor clothing. I am regularly reminded of the funny quote ‘There is no such thing as bad weather – only bad clothing!’
*Remember to sign up to Class Dojo to see all of the exciting things that are taking place in school. The children also get to see the comments you write back which makes them so happy and proud.
If parents/carers have any worries or concerns, please feel free to catch me at the end of the day. Messages can also be sent via Class Dojo.
I look forward to getting to know you and your children even more this term and wish you a very happy Autumn Term with us.
Below is an overview of our topic this term:
