Hello, welcome to class 9! The children are lucky enough to have three regular teachers - Miss Baliol-Key on Monday, Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning; Mrs Mills on Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon and Ms Flint on Thursday and Friday. We also have Mr Watson working with us as a TA in the afternoons so I'm sure he will be of great help in ensuring that all the children can achieve to their potential.
Timetable - a copy is attached below so that you can see what we're up to every day. Can I please draw your attention to PE on a Wednesday and Friday, so kits will be needed on those days.
Homework - this will be given out to the children on a Friday and should be returned the following Wednesday.
Medication - if your child has an inhaler, please make sure that we have a spare one in school along with any spacers that they may use.
If you have any problems or questions with anything that's happening in school, please do come and talk to us so that we can sort things out as quickly as possible.
Thank you, and lets have a great year!
Miss Baliol-Key and Ms Flint
Today, we practised ball skills in P.E in groups of 4. First we did it with 1 ball then 2 , next standing on 1 leg and finally standing and sitting down . We moved on to scorpion handball the rules are you can't stand up or go on your knees the point of the game is to get the ball touch the bench .It looked funny but fun and everybody made a lot of noise .When I asked them what they thought of the game they said , ' I enjoyed it but it wears you out .' , 'It's fun but it hurts when you slide on your bottom.' , 'It's great playing against your friends.' .Everyone thought it was a great game(even though some of the boys cheated).
Today is world war 1 day and we have moved our tables into rows. We also had a dunce hat that got put on us if we asked to get up!
We are having so much fun and here is a picture!
