Dear Parents/Guardians and Children,
As you now know, Miss Moore, Mrs McDonald and myself, Mrs Hymers, will be your new teachers in Year one. We are very excited to teach you all in September!
Until then, we hope you enjoy a lovely break, have some fun and new experiences. We know you have been working really hard over the last few months either in school or at home. If you can, we would love you to keep practicing your reading as much as possible and we also have a summer challenge for you. We would like to get to know you a little more so we have set the task of drawing a picture of yourself and writing or drawing some things that you like.
We would also like you to draw round your hand, cut it out and write your name in the middle please. You can also decorate it if you would like to. We will use these for a display in your new classroom.
Please find these activities on the Year R class pages on the school website. If you do not have access to the Internet or a printer, please ask the school office for a paper copy.
Some other things you might like to do in the holidays may be to practice your numbers and letters (in paint/sand at the beach with a stick/felt tips/a tray of washing up liquid etc) You could spot words or phonic sounds in books or on signs when you’re out and about, or learn a new skill such as doing your zip/buttons/laces by yourself, riding a bike, catching a ball etc.
If you have any questions about the new school year or about the tasks, please feel free to send us an email. Our addresses are on the school website - class pages. (Yr1+2)
Have a lovely summer!
We hope you get to spend some time with your friends and family members that you might not have seen for a while.
We look forward to seeing you on September 3rd.
Stay safe and happy.
Mrs Hymers, Mrs McDonald and Miss Moore J
