Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you have all had a wonderful time over the summer holidays with your family. Mrs Bishop, Ms Andrews and I are really looking forward to welcoming Years 3 and 4 back to school and into Robins Class on Thursday 3rd September 2020. Ms DuPreez will be teaching in class on Tuesday mornings too.
For the first few days we will be focussing on settling into new school routines and getting to know each other through fun activities in class. I will list below some of the ways in which you can make sure your child is ready for a new year of learning. There is also information regarding the topics we will be following across the curriculum.
If you have any questions, please contact me via the class email address – firstname.lastname@example.org or write a message in your child’s Reading Journal which should be brought into school every day. I will also keep in contact with you via the Class Dojo page.
