A very big welcome back to you all at the start of our new academic year! All of the children have settled really well into their new year groups and have very quickly ‘gelled’ as a whole class with many new friendships having already been established. We are very much enjoying our new class name of Goldfinch and the children have easily adapted to the name change, unlike me who frequently still refers to Class 2! I can assure you that I am made well aware when there has been a slip of the tongue!
As you are aware, on Tuesday 19th September at just after 3pm I will be holding Goldfinch Class’ Curriculum Afternoon. This will be an opportunity for you to find out what a day in Goldfinch Class is like, become familiar with the general routines of our class and to have an over view of what the National Curriculum for Year 1 and Year 2 (Key Stage 1) is like. I am very much looking forward you meeting you all.
Macmillan Tea and Cake Afternoon.
For the past two years the children in my class have led a fund raising afternoon to support the very worthy Macmillan charity. It has been a very successful occasion and the children gained an enormous amount of self-pride and satisfaction of raising money for other people who are going through a very tricky time. Goldfinch Class will be holding another tea and cake afternoon to raise money for this very worthy and essential charity. This will take place on Thursday 28th September.
I would be extremely grateful if you would all be able to provide a cake, either bought or homemade and send it in on the morning of the 28th September. In class we shall also be making some cakes to sell. We would also like you to come along and enjoy drinking tea and eating!
