Owl Class Newsletter –
Autumn Term 2023
Welcome to Owl Class! We hope your child will be very happy as they begin their learning journey at Scotter School. We have lots planned for this term - we are going to be so busy learning and having fun!
Reminders for Autumn Term 2023
Please can you make sure your child has a coat and a sun hat at school every day as the weather is so changeable and a sunny morning can often change to a rainy afternoon. We like to take advantage of our lovely outdoor area and encourage the children to explore and investigate in the fresh air as much as possible whatever the weather (within reason!).
Please ensure your child has a named bottle filled with water with them each day.
We will be sharing poems on Mondays, and on Wednesdays we will be celebrating children’s out of school achievements, so please send any trophies or certificates in on Wednesdays.
P.E. will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Indoor P.E. will be on a Tuesday, then we will be outdoors for P.E. on Wednesdays. Children need to come to school on these days in their school P.E. kit.
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.
