10th September 2019

 

 

Dear Reception Class,

Welcome to your first term at BIG SCHOOL! I am so looking forward to getting to know you well and to working with you over the year ahead.
I will post a message on this web page at the end of every, or almost every, weekend! Please have a look at it with your mum and dad as it will contain reminders of anything we have talked about during the week or anything important coming up.
You should all have received your ‘Welcome to School’ letter.
I will give you a timetable on the first day and a ‘Rough Guide’ information letter, giving you a brief outline of the term ahead.
Your mum and dad are invited to a Welcome Back evening on the first day of school. They will have an opportunity to meet all the teachers as well as other parents and I will chat to them about your year ahead.
Barbara
Reception class teacher
