Welcome to Pine Class!
Hello everyone, I am Mrs Dunn and I teach in Pine Class on a Wednesday afternoon, a Thursday and a Friday. This is my 5th year working at CPS, I have loved meeting all the wonderful children and helping them learn during this time. I am looking forward to returning to school after being on maternity leave, I have a baby girl called Penny who keeps me very busy!
Hello, I'm Mrs Lewis and I teach Pine Class on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning. I've worked at Carterton Primary School for many happy years and I've taught lots of wonderful children. I live with my husband, my daughter, our dog, Buddy and our house rabbit, Twinkle.
We are very lucky to have Miss Smith joining our class as a student teacher – she will be with us most days and is really looking forward to spending time at CPS.
We are looking forward to having you all in our class in September and have been planning lots of exciting things for you all to learn this year. In Pine Class we will be working extremely hard but having great fun while we do it. It is important that we try our best. At the start of the year we will be focusing on Phonics, we will be making sure we use our phonics to help us read and to help with our spelling. We will develop all the skills needed so that we can write in full sentences and make them exciting! Place value knowledge will be important during Year 2, being able to spilt numbers into 100s, 10s and 1s will help with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division so it is very important!
You will find our class timetable below. Please make sure you have your book bag in school every day. It is important to drink plenty of water so please make sure you have a water bottle in school.
Parents, please keep an eye on our class page as this is where you will find lots of information about what Pine class have been doing and dates/information to remember. Over the next few weeks you will be able to find an overview of the learning for Term 1. Please do not hesitate to speak to us if you have anything you would like to discuss about our class and your child’s learning.
Have a restful holiday and we will see you in September for lots of learning!
For Term 1 there will be no PE on Tuesday. Outdoor PE will be on a Thursday until further notice. Please ensure that your child comes to school dressed in outdoor weather appropriate PE kit.
