Dear Parents, Carers, and Families,
In our first Newsletter of 2020, we would like to wish you all a warm welcome back to school. We hope you have enjoyed your holidays and are looking forward to the year ahead. The students have done a great job of settling back into their school routines and it was wonderful to see so many smiling faces on our first day back.
Class teams and PLIMS: This Friday, your child’s school diary will contain an updated photo-list of the staff and therapists currently working with them in their classes. If there have been any minor changes to your child’s class team in the past term, then you will find them there, otherwise they will have stayed the same.
To look out for next week: Please also look out for your child’s new PLIMS (Pupil Learning Intention Maps), which will also be making their way home to you via the school diary this Friday. These will detail the targets set out for your child in each curriculum area that will form part of their learning focus for this term. Next week, you will be receiving the medium term planning for your classes, which will give you a broader overview of the kind of learning that will be taking place in each curriculum area for your child. The plans will be structured around the new theme this term which is ‘As time goes by’. We are excited to see the different ways that our learners and their class teams will be approaching this topic.
