Class information

Welcome to Class One. We are Reception and Year One. Our teachers are Sharon Hagley (Class teacher), Mia Horrell (Monday teacher) and Mandy Lewry (TA). Cover supervisor (for staff absence) is Jenny Rogers.

This year our themes will include ‘Marvellous Me’, ‘The Enchanted Woodland’, ‘Spots, Stripes and Whiskers’, ‘Amazing Africa’, ‘Mr McGregor’s Garden and ‘Buckets and Spades’, with a trip to the sea-side.

Mondays focus on exploring a creative curriculum and religious education, maths and phonics are woven into the day. This is supported by our work placement undergraduate Lucia Ellis who is studying Product Design at university.

In Class One we send Phonics and English homework home on Fridays and it is returned by Wednesday each week. We encourage daily reading of the book your child brings home.
