Welcome to Class 1

We are a Reception class within our Foundation Stage.

Our teacher is Miss Ward

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Jackson Mrs.Cassidy and Mrs.Ferguson

In Class 1, we do PE on a Monday. Please send PE kits in on a Monday and leave them in school until Friday.

Each child in Class 1 will have a reading book, some key words and a reading record. Please could you read with your child every night at home and send their book into school each day to practise. The children enjoy reading in our new cosy reading corner!

We love learning new things and getting busy in the different areas of learning; especially in our Outdoor Barn! In our class we have phonics sessions each day and literacy and numeracy focused activities. We like to impress our teachers by trying our best and by being independent learners. We have lots of exciting things planned this year so please keep checking our Newsletters to find out more.
