Welcome Chameleon Class of 2018-19!
My name is Mrs Johnson and this is my fourth year at Barley Close. I’m incredibly excited to be teaching Chameleon Class in the Year 4 team with Mrs Welch in Iguana Class. Our teaching assistant will be Mrs Burton who is a fabulous experienced teaching assistant at Barley Close.
We have lots of learning to fit in each week: daily English and Maths lessons, daily slots focused on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG), topic sessions on our exciting theme each term, swimming and PE lessons and much more.
I look forward to getting to know all the children and their families well during the year. Please don’t hesitate to come speak to me at the end of the day if you’d like to discuss your child’s learning or pass on any important information. You can also send in a note with your child in the morning. I’ll always make time for a meeting and there are several parents’ evening during the year where we can discuss your child’s progress.
Keep an eye on this webpage as I will try to add photos of the children’s best learning and most exciting lessons.
Important Days to note: TUESDAY for first PE session (tennis) and WEDNESDAY for forest school .
Please remember to bring in your full PE kit the first week back each term and leave it in school for the whole term (unless it gets muddy of course!). Your PE kit should include black shorts and a white t-shirt and black daps or trainers. Jogging bottoms and a jumper are also handy as we do PE outdoors as well. Some older clothes and shoes would be advisable for this PE session. These are fun lessons to take part in and something I really enjoy teaching so please remember your kit!
Please also remember that if your child wears earrings, then they need to be taken out that morning before school.
Spellings will be given out on Friday and then tested the following Friday.
A little about me...
My name is Mrs Johnson (was Miss Chandler) and I have been teaching for four years since completing my Primary Education PGCE in 2013. After qualifying as a teacher I worked as a cover teacher covering classes at Callicroft Primary School from Reception up to Year 6. After that I moved to Barley Close and I am very happy here.
When I’m not planning exciting lessons I am tucked up in bed reading, watching films or seeing my family and friends who are very important to me.
I look forward to getting to know you and your families,
