Grade 1 Radford

February 2016


Welcome to a new school year. I hope you all had a great Summer break and are excited about your child's year ahead.

Throughout the year I will send out newsletters like this to keep you up to date with what is happening in our classroom. Newsletters will be posted on the school's Facebook page and also emailed to you. I will include important school and class information as well as examples of children's work, things to do at home and photos. Only children who have been given permission will have their photos appear.

Things to remember

Specialist Lessons

Term 1

This term is largely about establishing our class routines and expectations which build the foundation on which all future learning can occur. Many of the jobs we do may appear 'easy'. This is so we can focus on being independent, organising ourselves and learning to work in groups. There will also be a big focus on establishing ourselves as a team by building trust and respect for each other and celebrating all the unique qualities each of us will bring to the class.

Contacting me

I welcome you to contact me at any time if you have any questions or concerns to discuss.

I also look forward to seeing you at our Parent Information Night on February 23rd.
