Congratulations on getting your first teaching job! You sound so enthusiastic and can't wait to get going, as well as maybe a bit anxious about everything you need to find out! I wouldn't contact the school yet, but I would advise you to start writing down the questions you have. When I started my new school I had nearly 2 pages! Leave space under each question so you can write down what you are told when you are back in school; if you are anything like me you will get a bit of information overload and forget half of what you have found out. Although <u>you</u> are now focused on September, don't forget the rest of the school aren't. They will be thinking about SATs and probably optional QCA assessments, then writing reports, both of which are huge and very draining. You have to walk a bit of a tightrope between trying to find out the things you need to know and not becoming irritating! (Please don't take this the wrong way - I was so eager I think I drove a few teachers mad when they were still trying to deal with their current class and all I could think about was the next academic year.) I would try and hold on until the end of June before contacting the school. In the meantime, spending time in any reception or nursery class would be really useful. If your course has finished you could volunteer to help out at a local school in these classes to collect as many ideas as you can. You could also see if there are any FS leading teachers in your area who you could observe. Your enthusiasm is going to help you to be a great teacher in September. Good luck!
