Autumn Term 2021
Welcome to Owl Class! I’m looking forward to finally getting to meet you in person at the picnic on Friday. I’m really excited for us to be working together this year. I have got lots of exciting things planned and we will have lots of fun together as you start your learning journey at Scotter School.
Reminders for Autumn Term 2021
We will be using our lovely outdoor area as much as possible so please make sure that you are prepared; sometimes a sunny morning can change to a rainy afternoon. Coats and sun hats will be needed every day, and sun cream should be applied before coming to school.
A named bottle, filled with water, will also be needed each day.
Reading books will be changed twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays. Reading books and diaries should be put in the basket in the classroom on those days.
P.E. will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children are to come in their school P.E. kit and trainers on these days.
Updates will continue to be uploaded to ClassDojo, so please remember to check for updates. If you need to get in touch with me, please message me directly on ClassDojo. If you would prefer to email, my email address can be found using the contact box on our class page on the school website.
