    I qualified last year and in December I will get my own KS2 class for the first time. I have a big list in my head of things I need to do but I'm sure I must have missed things. Has anyone got any suggestions of what I need to do to prepare?

    You need to get the children's 'levels' from their previous teacher.

    Some questions to ask school:

    What have they learnt so far this year?
    Do they use any schemes?
    Do you use particular planning proforma?
    Which children are pp?
    Any behaviour issues? (although don't pre judge from this).
    Any CP issues?
    Any kids who can't go home with particular parents/adults.
    Class list.
    Timings for the school day?
    Rotas for duties, PE, computers etc.

    Thank you. There's some ideas there I hadn't thought of.
