Welcome to Class 6

 

 

Hello everybody, my name is Miss Gladwinfield and I am your teacher next year in Year 2 Class 6. Mrs Hill will also be working with us.

Welcome to class 6

 

Important Information

  • Class 6 will have PE on Fridays.  Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school as soon as possible.  PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term.

 

  • In order to keep everyone safe, please stand behind the marked area at drop off and pick up times.  This will ensure all children have space to enter and exit the class safely and apply hand gel. Please wear a face covering if you are able to. Start time is 8.45 and finish time is 3.15.

 

  • All children will require a water bottle.  Please ensure this contains water only.  Children will be able to refill their bottles in class.

 

 

Home Learning

Our class page will be updated regularly with home learning tasks for children who are isolating at home.  These will be linked to some of the work we will be doing in class.  Please feel free to send in pictures of your child’s home learning as we would love to see what they are doing.  You can email me at a.gladwinfield@northcote.liverpool.sch.uk
