Four Week Transition…

Well – we are on day1 of a transition period that takes us up to the end of term – so congratulations all you Y2 children who are now juniors and the Y4 and Y5 children who are now Y5/6 and choosing their own uniform colour :-).

I would like to know what you all think of this experience. There are hardly any schools in the whole country that do this – but we want to be better than most schools, which is why we have tried this. It should mean that when we begin school in September, you already know your teacher and they know very well how to make lessons a success for you.

Please blog and let us all know how you are enjoying this… I included the picture below because that’s when our new Y6 were in Nursery: that is how quickly time passes…

  3. I had a wonderful time last year but most importantly, it’s all about this year that matters. I enjoyed yesterday because I loved my new teacher, Mrs Noble: she is very kind and Miss Cartwright is so kind as well and I also loved my new classroom as it was so tidy and clean. I loved yesterday.

  11. I think it is a good idea to spend time in my new classroom before September so I know what to expect after the summer holidays. I like my new class and glad I have miss Kidd as a teacher.

  12. I hope I have a good time in Year 4 and I hope my teacher teaches us well.

  13. I need to put my hand up for answering questions in class so then I might get them right but if I don’t get them right, it’s ok.

  14. In my new classroom it has been so difficult to know Mrs Wild and I didn’t want to leave Mrs Kidd as she was my best teacher and last year I had Miss Thickett as well and she was a brave and a beautiful teacher.

  15. I really enjoy my new classes: Miss Noble is very nice and I’m really happy we did a 4 week transition so now I know my teacher. I like having Mrs Jones on a Tuesday afternoon and Miss Cartwright on the rest. I love having Mrs Noble in a morning as well.

  16. I’m settling into year 5 and starting a diary entry for our literacy.

  17. I am really liking my new class and teacher. I am enjoying the junior playground and getting to make lots of new friends.

  18. I am really enjoying the transition weeks. I think this is a great idea because when we come back to school in September we will be able to get straight into our learning and we will not be worried about changing classes and having a new teacher.
    I am glad I came to this school and I am enjoying my learning and the new experiences. Thank you.
