WELCOME TO POPLAR CLASS
Class Teacher: Mr Doyle
Teaching Assistants: Miss Hooley and Mrs Sturgess
I am delighted that we are all back to school for the new school year. I am looking forward to working with the children and getting to know them over the next few months. Poplar Class is a class of 34 children and I am supported in class by Miss Hooley and Mrs Sturgess; they are also really excited to be back. Our aim is for the children to enjoy coming to school, to feel safe and enjoy their learning.
School feels almost back to normal, it is so good to see the children mixing and playing with their friends and learning in a classroom that was back to how it should be - the children interacting and sitting in groups. Long may it continue!
In class this term we will be reading a variety of texts: children love stories and I enjoy telling them. We will be finding out about famous inventors and their inventions and their impact on our lives. We will obviously also be focusing on our Numeracy skills, developing our confidence with number and how to apply it.
Reading and writing are key, so there will be a big emphasis on this over the year.
I would encourage you to make sure your child has a water bottle each day. We will endeavour to use the outdoor areas of the school as much as possible, so it would be essential to have a coat as the weather changes. P.E will be on Wednesday & Friday, so the children need to arrive at school in their kit on that day.
I believe communication is extremely important, so I am happy to keep in touch using Dojo. Please let me know if you want to know anything about what is going on in class. I am happy to help.
I look forward to meeting all parents and carers properly in the near future.
