Hello and welcome to Puffins Class
I hope you are looking forward to returning to school in September. 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 - 9:10. Your parents will have received an email informing them specifically what your arrival time is. Please try to arrive on time and don’t be late. Children will be arriving from 8:45 to 9:10 so you may be one of the first or a later one to arrive but that is fine. There will be an activity for you to do in class. You will need to follow the one way route shown in the video and come to through the main entrance door. 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
Lunch will be provided by school either a hot meal or sandwiches. Please do not bring a packed lunch. we do not have the space to store them.
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. PE will be outside. If the weather is dreadful I may do PE on another day. I will inform you in advance if this will the case.
What will happen at playtime and lunchtime?
Our playtime will be 10:45am and we will have a specific area of the playground to play. I will clearly explain this to you on the first day. You will not be able to mix with other children from other classes but you will be able to play with your classmates. Our lunchtime will be from 12 noon until 1:00pm. You will play outside and then come in to have lunch in the classroom. The area that you have to play in at lunchtime will be the same as you have at playtime. It is opposite the church at the top end of the playground.
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. The classroom will be laid out so you are all facing the front and sitting in twos. 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.
