Hi, I’m Leigh and I am the teacher in D’vash class. Lauren and Irene are the teaching assistants who will support your children in the classroom.
D’vash class have had an exciting start to the year. We have welcomed two new friends to our class and our returning children have been so helpful in showing them about how Gesher school works. Everyone is getting to know each other and making friends. We have talked a lot about how to be a good friend and make good choices in the classroom and playground.
Our topic this term is ‘All about me’ which gives us a fantastic opportunity to get to know all the children individually. In literacy we have been making books about ourselves and talking about different actions we can do. The children enjoyed painting their hands and making handprints in their ‘All about me’ books.
In maths we have been working with numbers to recognise numerals and count out the quantity to match. We have also been trying some addition and subtraction to see the children’s abilities. I have been very impressed by how interested the children are in showing their maths knowledge.
We have especially enjoyed exploring the playground, being in the soft play room, cooking and singing. Everyone is settling in well and getting familiar with the daily routines in D’vash class. I am looking forward to our year ahead.
