Back to School Night for Year 1 to 6 - 6.00 to 8.00 pm, Wednesday 13 September
We will be having outdoor games every Thursday and PE every Friday. However, this may sometimes change so please make sure PE kits (including trainers for outdoor games) are in school every day.
Please can you encourage your child to
- Come into school every day ready to learn
- If possible, read every day to an adult
- Learn and rehearse times tables (particularly 3, 4 and 8)
- Encourage children to visit educational sites if they are using a computer
Thank you to all those I have met this week. Your warm welcome and support is much appreciated. I look forward to meeting everyone over the next weeks.
Our blog ...
What a first week we have had in Dover! We have a new classroom and new routines, which has kept us busy.
Our new teacher, Mrs Wittmann, has been teaching us how to write a recount based on our adventures over the school holidays. We have been focussing on time connectives this week, making sure we are using them in our recount writing.
In Maths, we have been revising place value. We now understand the value of a digit in a three digit number using vocabulary such as hundreds, tens and ones. In our Maths books, we are learning how to represent our work in both pictorial and written forms.
We have also been looking at flags this week; why countries have flags and what the colours and shapes represent. We have chosen one flag which we will be drawing and researching next week.
A massive well done to Gracie, who was our ‘Pupil of the Week’ for showing respect to both her peers and adult.
