Welcome to 4CJ's page!!
I hope everyone has had an amazing Christmas!
We have had a great start to the year, with lots of exciting work and projects happening so far. 4CJ will continue to be taught by myself (Miss Jones), Mrs Voke, Miss Webster on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
A little bit about me, as I am new to Clapgate Primary. I am a newly qualified teacher after completing my degree at York St John University this year specialising in Maths and creativity. I have experience working in schools, nurseries and children clubs so hoping to bring everything I’ve learned together to provide a wonderful environment for all the children.
I am looking forward to continuing to work with the wonderful children in 4CJ and to continue producing some fantastic creations throughout the year.
Swimming: Every Tuesday morning this term the children have the opportunity to go swimming. Please make sure the children bring a swimming costume and a towel. They may also bring goggles if they wish.
PE: Thursday afternoons will be an opportunity to get active. When possible, we will be outdoors though the unreliable British weather may bring us indoors so please bring both kits.
Book bags: Please make sure these are brought to class on Thursdays so that I will get a chance to listen to all the children read so that we can make great progress in this area. We can also change any books which the children have completed so that they have access to a variety of stories.
Homework: Each Friday the children will receive maths homework related to the current topic. The children will have an opportunity to ask any questions about the work, though if you are unsure I will be available on Monday’s after school to go through any questions.
As part of our topic the children can also pick a project to complete at home. These can be done at any time over the term and brought in on Thursday, so that they can show the other children their skills. I am already so impressed with the children's efforts and want to thank you for the support that you provide.
The children can also take part in a reading challenge. The children can colour in a square when it’s completed and if they fill a line they can pick a prize from our reward box, which many have done already! I will need to get my thinking cap on for our next challenge!
Please do continue to send in photos and examples of any reading challenges the children have completed.
