Monday 13th November 2017.
As you know Mrs Richards will be leaving St James at Christmas. From January Year 5 will be taught by Miss Charley Peters – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday morning and Mrs Claire Norris – Thursday and Friday. To allow the new teachers time to plan together I will be covering the class on Wednesday afternoons.
Both teachers will spend some time in the class before Christmas to get to know the children a little before they begin in January, they will also have some time with Mrs Richards to ensure a smooth hand over.
Mrs Smillie will also be leaving us at Christmas. From January year 2 will continue to be taught by Mrs Quinton at the beginning of the week and Mrs Ali Wiles will be teaching at the end of the week. Mrs Wiles will also be coming into school before Christmas to meet the children and work on planning for next term with Mrs Quinton.
We are always sorry to see teachers leave us and I am sure you will join me in wishing both Mrs Richards and Mrs Smillie all the very best for the future.
