- Class Lists 2017-2018
We are currently working on class lists for 2017-18 and will share these with you during the week beginning 12 June.
As is our practice, we aim to provide stability for our students by moving them up with their existing classes where possible, while also taking account to ensure that classes are balanced. Following the issue of the class lists, it will be possible to meet with Ms Jess should you have any questions. However, we ask for your trust in us that that all decisions taken are in the best interests of all the children and your understanding that we cannot meet requests of individual parents.
- Please let your class teacher know if your child will leave early for the Summer holiday.
LEARNING THEMES – GETTING READY FOR YEAR 1: MOVING ON
We are fast approaching the end of the year and the children are already getting excited about moving up to Year 1. Using a story by Eric Carle, called ‘A House for Hermit Crab’, we will be exploring themes of changes and new beginnings. We will be talking about and visiting classrooms in Year 1 and talking to some Year 1 children to find out about life in Key Stage 1.

Using the book ‘A House for a Hermit Crab’, we will talk about changes and expectations for next year. Each child will be asked to identify two things that they are good at and one thing that they would like to get better at. These will be attached to a ‘shell’ that they have made using art and craft materials.
We will be revisiting our learning about language to describe time, such as days of the week, months of the year and seasons.

We will start our topic about summer from next week in Mandarin. We will talk about what we can see in summer time and how we feel.
