Does anyone have any good ideas for transfer day later this month? I will be meeting my new year 4 class for the first time and it will be my first session of proper teaching, ie I will no longer have the excuse that I am a student teacher!!! I will definitely try to take a photo of each of them so I can learn their names over the holidays (hopefully this will prove to be my secret weapon in behaviour management in the first week). Maybe I can make these into a display? I had thought about maybe taking some seeds and getting them to plant them so they would all be sprouting in September as a welcome to their new classroom but then realised I would have to take home, water and care for 30 plants for 2 months, not to mention the extras I would need in case some don't grow. Not even sure what sort of seeds to use. Maybe I could send them each home on transfer day with a seed in a pot and ask them to bring them back in September so we could measure them and make a graph? Does that sound like a great idea or just the daft seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time over enthusiasm of a soon to be NQT? Sorry this is a bit of an essay but any transfer day ideas would be great!
