Pathfinders 6 is a Year 2 class taught by Mrs Goodwin (previously Miss Reynolds).
Hello, welcome to Pathfinders 6! I am so glad to welcome you all to a new year and a new class. I had the pleasure of teaching some of you last year in Year 1 but some of you are new faces and I can’t wait to get to know you, we are going to have a brilliant time here in Pathfinders 6. I cannot wait for a great year together!
For Year 2 pupils the school day commences at 9:00am and finishes at 3:15pm. We ask that parents/carers wait at the lower side gate (Burn) at drop off times. For home time, we ask parents/carers to collect their children from their classroom yard exits. Please enter the school using the same gate that you used for morning drop off.
KS1 pupils are entitled to milk, either free or paid, however paid milk MUST be paid on Parent Pay. Please see the school office if you need help signing up to Parent Pay.
PE this term will take place on a Wednesday and it will be Gymnastics. Please make sure you have the correct P.E. kit in school and this must stay on your peg for the half term.
Here at West Boldon, we ask that you read with your child at least 3 times per week (and sign their pink reading diaries) as reading is a very important part of our learning. Children who have read to an adult three times in a week will be able to tick a square on our class reading challenge. We will also be changing and sending reading books home every Friday as well as our weekly spellings/phonics.
This year we will be continuing to use Class Dojo school-wide as a means of maintaining parent communication and as our whole-school rewards system. I will also be continuing to post regular updates to our Class Story throughout the year as well as reminders for parents and pupils.
This year we are following Dimensions: Learning Means the World Curriculum and will be following relevant, challenging, highly engaging and ambitious themes to teach the majority of our foundation subjects. Our Autumn 1 theme and additional topics are as follows:
Dimensions – Inter-nation Media Nation
RE – Judaism – Moses and Hanukkah
PSHE – Family and Friends, Fairness, Communities and Keeping Safe.
ICT – Multimedia
