Welcome to Venus Class
This is our YR class. The class teacher is Mrs Susie Winchester and the teaching assistants are Miss Court and Mrs Browne . While Mrs Winchester is on maternity leave, the class teacher is Miss Georgia White.
Wow, what an excellent first week we have had! The children have all been busy getting to know their peers, the staff and the school. We aim to make the transition from pre-school to big school as smooth as possible for your children so we will continue to spend time in these first few weeks getting to know each other, finding out about our environment, making friends and establishing rules and routines. We will also have lots of fun with our first topic called ‘All about me’.
To help us get to know each other we will be making a display of our families so please do send in a family photograph if possible.
We will also be looking at growing and changing and if you could send in some pictures of your child at different stages in their lives e.g. as a baby, 18 months, 3 years, 4 years then we can use them to make comparisons as we grow older. We will take good care of them and the children will bring them home when we have finished with them.
We also love to celebrate things that the children have achieved outside of school in class too, so please do send in any certificates, swimming badges, medals etc for your child to show and tell to their friends.
Starting school can be an exciting yet daunting time for the children and parents too. It is understandable that some children will be a bit anxious and may be upset when dropped off in the morning. Please be assured that we will take every step necessary to make your child feel as settled as possible and whilst it is hard to leave them whilst so upset the quicker parents are able to leave the easier it will become for everyone. If there were to be any problems at all we would contact you, but please if you have any other concerns or questions as we all settle in do come and speak to me after school.
