Class information

Welcome to Class One. We are Reception and Year One. Our teachers are Sharon Hagley for four days a week and Jo Drake for one day a week. We are also very lucky to have a classroom assistant that works with us each day.

In September we began with the theme ‘Marvellous Me’ and our current theme is ‘The Enchanted Woodland’. We are looking forward to our woodland walk next week. Other themes this year include: ‘Spots, Stripes and Whiskers’, ‘Amazing Africa’, ‘Mr McGregor’s Garden and finally ‘Buckets and Spades, with a trip to the sea-side.

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.

Welcome to Class 2 for children in years two and three. Our teacher is Miss Budden. Mrs Taylor and Mrs Lewry are the teaching assistants that help us.
