Year 1 and Year 2 children – Friday 4 September
On Friday 4th September, your child will be coming in for 1 hour either 10:00-11:00am or 1:00-2:00pm. You will be informed of which group on a message on Tapestry so please check this. We have chosen to bring back the children in smaller groups as part of the transition arrangements and I am so pleased to inform you that Mrs Knott, Miss Chalk and the Early Years TA’s will also be there to welcome them back.
We have decided that Year 2 children will come back into school on Friday 4th September in 2 different groups for an hours session. This will allow us to show the children the classroom, talk them through the new routines and also get to know them a little bit more!
We have decided to split the children based on surnames:
Group 1- 10-11am Surnames A-L
Group 2- 1-2pm Surnames M-Z
We would kindly ask that you make sure you bring your child in the correct time slot so that the groups are evenly numbered. On this day the children will be dropped off and picked up from the middle gate outside the Year 2 classrooms (Please see YouTube video for more clarification).
Here are all the links for the videos for the new classes for next year.
