Welcome to Class 1

Foundation Stage and Year 1


Class Teachers: 

Mrs G. Bottomley 

Mrs J. Hutchinson (Mondays)


There are 31 children in Class 1.


 Mrs Campling is a teaching assistant who helps in Class 1 every day. 

Mrs Howe teaches us French.

Jamie is a Sports Coach who takes us for our Thursday PE lessons.

Our theme for this half term is:


We will be looking at our favourite toys and drawing or painting pictures of them. Year 1s will write labels for their pictures. We will be designing and making our own sock puppets. We will look at toys from around the world and toys from a long time ago, comparing them to the toys that we have. We will also be investigating the materials that different toys are made from (plastic, fabric, wood...) and naming properties of materials such as hard, soft, dull and shiny.

Also remember: 

  • Bring your reading book and word snail every day as we read with children and check these on different days each week. 
  • Please apply suncream before school when the weather is likely to be sunny - we are unable to apply this for children at school.  
  • Bring wellies and raincoats when it is raining and bring a sunhat if the weather is likely to be sunny - Class 1 children use the outdoor area throughout the school day. 
  • Bring your water bottle filled with water every day.  
  • Please ensure all clothes, pumps and shoes are clearly labelled with children's full names. Names quickly wear off some items! 
  • Check when your day is for Show and Tell and what our weekly theme is. 
  • Please tie back long hair every day for school.
  • No jewellery is to be worn in school.
  • Fresh fruit is provided for playtime snacks. As we are a 'healthy school' please do not send sweets, chocolate or snacks such as these into school for your children.
