Welcome to Mrs Oakes' Class
The children and I have settled really well into our new classroom. The entire class have had a very productive start to the year and I am very impressed with the way everyone has made a positive start to school routines. We have started to use a new cursive handwriting style this year and the children are working hard to implement this into their everyday writing.
We have had a great start to home reading this year, with many children reading at home on a regular basis. I have asked the children to take home their reading books and logs and bring them into school everyday so that I can monitor progress. I very much appreciate you taking the time to read with your child and making a short comment in their reading diary.
A reminder that on Fridays , the children have swimming and P.E in the mornings.
