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.
Important Days to note: TUESDAY for first PE session and WEDNESDAY for swimming.
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. A full body swimming costume or swimming trunks are required for swimming each week. 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 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 21st September:
How to sell a house. How would you describe your house? What would you say when people come to visit your house?
