Hello and welcome back to Puffins Class
I hope you are looking forward to returning to school after the summer holidays. We are very much looking forward to seeing you. I am sure you will have lots of questions so below I have tried to predict what those questions may be and try to answer them.
What time do I come to school and where do I go to?
Your arrival time will be from 8:45. At 8.55 the gate will locked. You will need to follow the route shown in the video and come to through the main entrance door. We are no longer operating the one way system so you may leave across the playground (as shown) or back through the main gate. The first thing you will need to do is sanitise your hands and then you will then go straight to the classroom. I will be on the door to show you where to go.
What do I need to bring?
As little as possible. DO NOT NEED TO BRING A RUCSACK.
On the first day you will need to bring
- pencil case. See the link page for what you need in your pencil case. Your pencil case will stay in school.
- water bottle
- coat (weather dependent)
Lunch will be provided by school either a hot meal or sandwiches. Please do not bring a packed lunch.
What about PE?
We will be doing PE on a Monday and Friday. On these days you will need to wear your PE kit for school all day. You will come to school in your PE kit and go home in your PE kit. You will need to wear a white T-shirt, navy shorts with your school jumper and navy track suit bottoms/leggings or a school tracksuit. Trainers that you can fasten independently are to be worn on your feet as PE may be outside.
What will happen at playtime and lunchtime?
Our playtime will be 10:40am and we will no longer have a specific area of the playground to play. I will clearly explain this to you on the first day. You will now be able to mix with other children from other classes. Our lunchtime will be from 12 noon until 1:00pm. You will play outside and then come in to have lunch in the hall.
Who will be my teachers and what will the classroom be like?
Your teachers and teaching assistants will be Mrs Lloyd, Mrs Kendrick, Ms Pringis and Mrs Woodward. You can see pictures of us on the link page. There are pictures of the classroom on the link page.
We hope this answers some of your questions. You will feel a little nervous and that is completely understandable but we will do our best to help you to feel comfortable and happy.
