A little bit about me...
My name is Mrs Welch. As well as being a teacher , I am a busy Mum of 3 children (13, 12, and 9).
I don't get a lot of spare time but when I do I like to walk my dogs (Fudge and Bob) and relax by listening to music.
This will be my second year at Barley Close. I'm incredibly lucky and I'm super excited about teaching Iguana Class in 2019-2020.
Reading Records Due in on Mondays and Thursdays
Reading Records will be monitored on a Monday to ensure that children are on track to read 3x per week.
For every child that reads at least 3 times per week (this will be checked on a Thursday) 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.
LOOK OUT FOR MRS WELCH'S BED TIME STORY ON HERE AND OUR SCHOOL FACEBOOK PAGE (COMING SOON).
Spellings will be given on a Friday and then tested on the following Friday.
Please support your children to learn their spellings. Some will be from the Year 3/4 spelling lists. Others will follow a pattern.
Spellings can be found on this section of the class pages.
I will also do my best to put a copy on the class door.
In addition, children should also be bringing their spelling books home with a copy of their weekly spellings in.
Before, Every, There, They, Christmas
These spellings will be tested on Thursday 12th December 2019
Thursday Forest School
Please bring in a change of clothes and footwear to change into.
Gym - wear P.E kit to school. It will be in bare feet.
