Dear pupils and parents,
I am Miss Mannion and am thrilled to be at Hall Green Infants as a new teacher. I am excited about the opportunity to work with your delightful children and go on lots of fun learning adventures!
Joining a new keystage can be daunting and we understand that sometimes there may be something that you are not sure about. In these situations your first point of call would always be your child's class teacher - that's me! Hall Green teachers strive for a positive working relationship with our parents and as such, will always be happy to discuss and resolve any issues. If you would like further clarification , then your second point of call would be the Year 1 Leaders, Miss Hobbs and Mrs Lewis who are happy to help in anyway to support your children.
Year 1 is very different to Reception so please do not hesitate to come and see us and we will be happy to answer all of your questions. You will find us in the playground every morning, welcoming all our year 1 families.
Our expectation is that children read daily for at least 10 mins.
By now all your children should be bringing home a reading book - used in Guided Reading and/or a Sharing book - selected by the child to read at home with help and encouragement from a family member.
Books should be returned to school everyday and taken home every afternoon so they can enjoy them at home too.
Reading Records are to be completed by parents and carers . This supports us with understanding which children are getting support from their families. If you need any more details these can be found in the parent meeting powerpoint.
