Hello and welcome to China class.

The adults in China class are Mrs Bourner (Class Teacher) and Miss Smith (Teaching assistant). We will also supported by Mrs Lowe

Throughout the year we will be learning many new and exciting things. Each term we will have a different topic and you can see what we have been doing and finding out about. P.E days are Wednesday and Friday so please make sure you have all your PE kit named and in school. Also earrings need to be removed if your child cannot do these themselves. Reading books will also be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. Please indicate in the contact book you have listened to your child read.

Each child has their own tray under their desk which is where their book bag will live. Due to the size of the trays they cannot accommodate backpacks or bags of this size so please could you supply your child with a suitable sized bag. All children are allowed to drink water throughout the day and it would be helpful if they had a named water bottle to put in their table box as this stops them having to leave the classroom during learning time.

Spellings will be sent home on a Monday and the children will be tested the following week. Please help your child to learn these and try using them correctly in a sentence to reinforce their understanding. Homework will also be introduced shortly which is relevant to any work being covered in class and may be Topic, Literacy or Mathematics. This will be given out on a Thursday and we would like it returned to school by the following Tuesday. The children have a folder which this can be kept in so it will not get mislaid easily. Where possible we will give examples of how to help your child so they will not become confused by different methods.

We are really looking forward to working with you and your children this year. If you have any questions regarding your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to speak to us.

Mrs Bourner, Miss Smith and Mrs Lowe
