Red Class Fanfare 09.07.21
Hello Red Class Families,
Last week, I mentioned the Worcestershire Summer School Games. Schools from across the county took part in Paralympic themed events and this week we received the results. Reception and Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and Year 2) were put into the same category for results. I’m pleased to tell you that Red Class came first in the county for wheelchair tennis. I haven’t told the children yet, just in case they’re not delivered in time, but we should receive medals before the holidays as county champions. This is incredible news and I’m very proud of their achievement.
We’ve seen some very tired little ones, this week, which is very common at this stage in the year. When the children are tired, they find it hard to sustain their listening and to get along with their friends. To help the children to be successful, next week, we will continue with the same routine as routine is important for young children, but we will reduce the length of carpet sessions, complete activities for our class assembly (art, singing, role play), introduce the traversing wall to support playtimes and add ‘quiet and calm’ sessions such as mindfulness activities. If 1.40pm collection is an option for your family, then I would encourage families to do this next week.
You will find your child’s annual report in their book bag tonight and information regarding staff for Green Class next academic year. The children will meet their new teacher on Monday and will complete some artwork for their new classroom. Mrs James is a fantastic teacher. I know the children will enjoy their time in Green Class in her care. Mrs James will present a ‘Welcome to Year 1’ meeting on Thursday over Zoom.
Hopefully, the flags made it home to you and we can all wave them on Sunday for the big day. I hear there might be an important football match. 😊

P.S. We’re really short on socks at the minute. Please check for any spare school socks and send them back to school.
