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 Merchant who is a fabulous experienced teaching assistant at Barley Close.
Change of plan as we have managed to secure the sports coach again this term.
TERM 5: CHILDREN TO WEAR THEIR PE KITS INTO SCHOOL ON THURSDAYS. BRING SWIMMING KIT AND TOWEL ON WEDNESDAYS.
Important Days to note: THURSDAY for first PE session (CRICKET) and WEDNESDAY (SWIMMING).
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.
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 completed 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,
Reading Records Due in on Thursdays
For every child that reads at least 3 times per week we will give the whole class 1 extra minute of playtime on a Friday. Research shows that reading aloud at least 3 times a week can dramatically improve their learning skills and confidence. We must see adult signatures to prove children have been reading.
What activities make a great half term?
