Friday 7th September
Welcome to 1GA!
I would like to start with a very warm welcome and massive thank you to all the children in 1GA for making my first week as Leasowes an absolute pleasure. It’s been really enjoyable getting to know the children over the past few days and I can’t wait to watch them grow. I’m also looking forward to getting to know parents/carers and including you on our journey in Year 1.
We have had a great start and the children are settling in well. This year we are going to encourage independence and establish routines. We have started to read our first text Billy’s Bucket and the children have used their imaginations to predict what might be inside his magical bucket.
Meet the teacher evening is on Tuesday 11th September between 5.00-5.30 and again at 5.45-6.15pm. I'm looking forward to meeting you all!
Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested on the following Friday. This will start with the first set of spellings being given out on Friday 14th September. These will be tested in the children's phonics groups.
Please continue to hear your child read as often as you can and sign their diary. We will give out school reading books week commencing 10th September.
PE is on a Tuesday and a Wednesday (weather permitting!) Please can you ensure ALL clothing items are clearly named.
