We are very excited to be back and have kick started a new year of learning and challenges.


This year is going to be a little bit different to other years but we can't wait to have a classroom full of happy children again!


Our time slot for the start of our school day is 9:00 - 9:10.

Our time slot for the end of the day is 3:10 - 3:20. 


We will be in a year group bubble so the children in Year 1 will have lunch and play times together.

 If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to talk to us.


Please use this page to keep up-to-date with all the learning that is taking place in our classroom and any information about our new topics. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask.


Thank you for your continued support

Miss Cordey, Mrs Guest, Mrs Kings and Miss Rybarczyk


This year we would like children to bring the following things with them:


  • Lunch box/bag (if not having a school lunch)
  • Drink bottle
  • Reading book and diary on a Monday and a Friday
  • Pencil Case inc. pencil, sharpener, rubber, variety of pencil crayons, felt tips, ruler. This will stay in school.  Any resources you can not provide will be provided by school. 
  • Coat


Please note, children will not be required to bring many items to school and therefore should not need a rucksack. 

We aim to get 4 pieces of homework in their home learning diary a week. This can be anything from reading a couple of pages of their book, practising times tables to attending a club.


For each piece of home learning your child will receive a merit. These are counted up at the end of each half term and go towards home learning awards which your child can then use in the homework hut. 

15 merits = Bronze award 

20 merits = Silver award

25 merits = Gold award 


Let's aim for everyone to achieve Gold!

Every week in 1C, the child with the most merits receives a Homework Star prize.

Will it be you?


PLEASE NOTE Your child will change their reading books once a week on a Monday and they will need to be returned to school on a Friday to be quarantined ready for the following week.



This year, children will be coming into school dressed in their PE kits.

Our PE days are: 

Tuesday - Outdoor P.E

(Please ensure they are in warm trousers and a jumper for the winter months)

Wednesday - Indoor P.E with Sports Plus


Our Topic is...

Our first topic this year is all about Traditional Tales.

We will be reading the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears first.
