The 'Welcome back to Wendell' event will begin with a meeting with the senior leaders to discuss the vision for the school for the next three years. There will also be an introduction to the 'Mind Up' curriculum being introduced this year. Following on from the meeting with the senior leaders, parents are invited to go to their children's classes to speak to their new class teachers. At that meeting, you will find out more about the procedures in class (when reading books and homework are due in), information about the curriculum and special events being planned. This is also an excellent opportunity to ask your new class teacher any questions. We understand that some families need to attend more than one class so please feel free to move from class to class. The event will finish at 4:30pm.

PE - Each class will be taking part in PE twice a week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure your child has a PE kit to change into for PE every session - a white t-shirt, black or navy blue shorts or track bottoms and suitable footwear for sessions outside and plimsolls for lessons inside, no football kits please! PE kits may be left on your child’s peg during the week. Please make sure your child’s PE Kit and school uniform is named. Children who do not have P.E. kit will not be allowed to take part in lessons.
Water - Children should bring a bottle of water (no juices please!) in to school to keep in class and drink during the day. Please remind your child to take the bottle home to wash and fill up at the end of each day.
Tissue Donations - Please can we have donations of tissues to have in class for those runny noses.
Reading books will be changed on a Monday and a Thursday. Please make a short comment in the Reading Record book and then we know that you have read with your child, and their reading book will be changed.
Please aim to read with your child for around 15 minutes every day.
