Welcome Iguana Class of 2018-19!
My name is Mrs Welch and this is my first year at Barley Close. I’m incredibly excited to be teaching Iguana Class as part of the Year 4 team with Mrs Johnson in Chameleon 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.
PARENTS EVENINGS: Thank you for all signing up for a parents evening slot next week. If you can't make your slot please let me know and we can arrange a more convenient time to talk about your child's progress. I look forward to meeting with you all.
Important Days to note: TUESDAY will be tennis. WEDNESDAY is 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. It would be advisable to have some 'old' clothes for forest school and some shoes which are sensible such as willies or old trainers.
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 bit about me...
My name is Mrs Welch. As well as being a teacher I am a busy Mum of 3 children. My friends and family are very important to me.
I don't get a lot of spare time but when I do I like to walk my dog (Fudge) and relax by listening to music.
I am super excited about working at Barley Close and getting to know all your families. It is a lovely school and I know I will be very happy teaching Year 4.
Talk Topic given Friday 16th November 2018
What are you thankful for?
The children will be creating an acrostic poem all about what they are thankful for as this week marks Thanksgiving for the American people.
SPELLINGS given Friday 16th November 2018
I will try and keep the up to date list on our classroom notice board which is on the door where you drop off and pick up. Please bear with me if it isn't done on the Friday before pick up.
Your child will know if they have 6 or 8 spellings each week.
(Only 7 maximum this week as they're tricky!)
