Meet the Year Group and Meet the Teacher
On Friday last week, over 200 parents of our youngest students came into school to meet the teachers find out more about the routines. This familiarity helps to remove some of the anxiety that young children feel when making big transitions.
In Week 2, Y2 Parents will have the opportunity to attend some information sessions called Meet the Year Group. In these, you will find out more about the curriculum in your child’s new year group.
This session will begin with a presentation from Mr Paul in the Sports Hall. The first session on Tuesday 27th August is for parents of children in Years 2-4 and starts at 4 pm. We arrange sessions in such as way that parents with 2 children will be able to meet the teachers in both year groups.
NB - If you have children in Y5 & Y6, your meetings will be on Thursday 29th August, 4pm in the Sports Hall.
FS3 Phonics Meeting
Also in Week 2, Wednesday 28th August at 3pm there will be a meeting for FS3 Parents who would like to find out more about the way we teach phonics and how to support your children at home. More detail will be sent to you by the FS3 Team in due course.
In Week 3, week beginning 2nd September, there will be some pop-in sessions for parents called Meet the Teacher. This is an opportunity for you as parents to introduce yourselves to your child’s teacher and to share anything that you feel is relevant in ensuring your child has a fantastic year at St Andrews. These 10 minute drop-ins will run from Monday to Thursday from 2.45 pm - 3.45 pm.
