Dragonflies

Welcome to Dragonflies class. The staff are really looking forward to a new term after such an unsettled and difficult year so far. It will be great to finally get to know you and your child. We hope everyone is looking forward to the autumn term as much as we are! We will be working hard to ensure your child settles in well and makes lots of new friends.

Mrs Smith and Mrs Jones will be the class teachers. Mrs Smith will be teaching on Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Jones will be teaching on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Mrs Smith and Mrs Jones will be supported by Mrs Tabberer, Mrs Shaw and Mrs Ennis. Mrs Ennis is also our early years family support worker.

Our topic for the Autumn term is ‘A Blast from the Past.’ Once the children are settled in our focus will be ‘Dinosaurs’ followed by ‘Transport’ after October half term. During the first half term our topic will be led by the following books;

-Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs

-Tyrannosaurus Drip

-Mad About Dinosaurs

-Dinosaur Roar

-Here Come the Dinosaurs

The children will be taking part in story telling activities, sharing their likes and dislikes with their new friends, talking about their family, getting to know each other, using basic maths skills and settling into their new environment.

Reading packs and homework activities will go home once the children are in school full time.  Details about PE days and Forest School sessions will follow soon.

Forest View uses the digital platform SeeSaw to share observations and communications. Details of how to set up your child’s account will follow soon.

Finally, feel free to email (fsmith@forestview.gloucs.sch.uk / jjones@forestview.gloucs.sch.uk) or phone if you have any questions or concerns,
