Welcome to our Class
Welcome to Class 1! There are 11 reception and 9 Year 1 children in our class. We are taught by Mrs Fox on Monday to Thursday, and Miss Relph teaches us on Friday.
Our topic this term is ‘ African Willderness.’ Please see the link below for further information about the learning that will be taking place in Class 1 this term.
Class Rules and Weekly Timetable
We have 4 Golden Rules in Class 1:
- Try your best!
- Be kind and helpful.
- Be a good learner.
- Tidy up!
We do P.E twice a week so it is a good idea to have your P.E kit (including trainers) in school all week.
Forest School is on Friday – For the first half of this term it is Year one’s turn to do forest school. Reception children will have their turn after the May half term. When it is your turn you need come to school in long sleeved tops and trousers and bring wellies (to get changed into.) Please bring school uniform into school, as all children will get changed into their uniform after their forest school session.

Our phonics teaching throughout the school follows the Letters and Sounds Programme of synthetic phonics teaching using Phonics Play. Click here to find out how to help your child with pronouncing letter sounds correctly:
We have a book banded system for supporting the teaching of reading, which includes a range of published schemed books (Oxford Reading Tree, Project X, Collins Big Cat, Ginn, Story Chest and Phonics Bug). The children then progress onto read books of their choice from a wide selection of ‘Free Readers’. Children have regular guided reading sessions in their class to build on early reading comprehension and phonics skills.
