Children don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care
Headteacher: Sarah Bullmore 17 June 2013
Welcome to Pearl Class!
Welcome to the start of the new school year. This letter (hopefully) will give you a bit of
information about out class and day to day routines.
Your child will have a book sent home in their book bag with a reading record book. If your child
has a reading book, it will help them to make good progress if you hear them read the book
regularly. We will hear each child read at least once a week and change their book if we think
they are ready. If they are not on reading books, they will be able to choose a book from our
classroom book collection to take home. It would be really beneficial to spend some time with
your child looking at this book and reading to them. We really want to encourage our children to
enjoy books and become enthusiastic readers! Also, for children not on reading books, we will be
sending home sounds and words to practice and learn.
On a Monday afternoon the children will have PE; Mr Mark Taylor will take the children for this
lesson each week. Please bring in a t-shirt and shorts in a named bag which can be left on your
Support staff in the class are: Jackie Marshall, Emma George, Amy Hawley and Becki Bird.
Snack and cooking money
Each morning children can choose a drink of water or milk and a healthy snack. To help us fund
this and cookery ingredients we ask for a voluntary contribution of £1 per week/£7 per term.
Thank you to any parents/Carers that have already done this. This contribution can be given to
myself or any of the other staff in our classroom.
If there is ever anything that you would like to discuss please come and find me before or after
school. I am really looking forward to getting to know you and your child.
