Welcome to 1P
Hello everybody! I am Miss Pearson and I am the class teacher in 1P. We are very lucky to have our teaching assistants Mrs Davidson (Mon-Wed) and Miss McKenna (Mon-Fri) who help us with all our work! Miss Fort also teaches in class on a Wednesday morning.
We are all hoping that this year will be a bit more ‘normal’ – though your children don’t know any different than a school ‘in Covid times’ so in a way that is great as hopefully it’ll be even more exciting as they can mix more with the other children and take part in more clubs, assemblies and lots more!
If you have any questions or anything you think I may need to know, please speak to me on the gate (it is easier after school if you don’t mind waiting for me to dismiss the other children)
You can also use
which is a brilliant way to contact me for small issues/messages which don’t need immediate response – for example to let me know that your child has forgotten their book but would like another tonight, or can I send another homework sheet etc. I cannot guarantee to respond within a certain time but I will always try and check messages when I can throughout the school day. Any more serious or urgent issues, please speak to me or contact school.
We also have a class email but this is not checked as regularly so please ensure you download Dojo.
Our class email is email@example.com
* Reading Books - please try to read as much as possible - even just a few pages per night. This is especially important considering how much school the children have missed last year. Reading is crucial to your child's progress and we would really advise this as a main focus for you to do at home.
* PE lessons are timetabled for Tuesday morning. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school this week and that ALL items are labelled. Pumps are necessary as we hope to do PE outside as much as possible. Please take out earrings for the day - we cannot remove them for the children.
* Homework - Spellings will be given out each Friday to learn and practice at home - this should be returned the following Friday (not before as the children can then practice up until that day) and the children will be given a little test to see if they can write the words. This is not something which the children should worry about - in fact each year the children seem to look forward to Friday spellings!
* Water bottles - please provide your child with a named water bottle to keep in class. We will refill this each day and send this home on a Friday for you to wash properly. Please ensure it is returned again on Monday.
Any questions, please ask!
Any other notices I will add here when necessary.
