Class 1

Welcome to Class 1!


We have made it to the Summer holidays! It's been a very different year for us all and we've had to work hard altogether to get through it and hopefully by September a little bit of normality will have returned. Please look at the Class 1 Transition booklet below to support with your child's return in September. 


As you all know we (Miss Atkin & Miss Williams) won't be there to greet you on your first day back in September as we will be waiting the arrival of our babies but we want to wish you all the best for your year ahead. A lot of preparation has already been put in place for your return and we've worked closely with Miss Davies, Miss Ramwell, Miss Yates and all the teachers who will be there for you on your first day back - we are very jealous as they've all got some really fun activities and learning for you! This isn't the end of the year we expected and/or wanted, and we wish we could give you all a big 'see you later' hug but that will have to wait for now. We couldn't be more proud of the children in Class 1 adapting so well to the circumstances and still having a big smile on their faces - it definitely cheers us up when we speak to you or see your photos and a big thank you to all the parents/carers who have supported their child/ren through this time, we couldn't have done it all without you either! Thank you all for your kind words as we go on maternity leave, we hope you have a relaxing summer holiday smiley

All the best,

   Miss Atkin & Miss Williams

Please note:


  • We had lots of really positive feedback about the Oak National Academy resource that we started using for our English, so we have decided to continue with this resource for now. Please keep letting us know your thoughts on these lessons as we will review it each week. Some of us thought the lessons could be quite long - if this is the case perhaps stop the lesson part way through (when your child is loosing interest) and pick it up again later or the next day. Remember do what works best for you and your child.
  • We have also found a fantastic Phonics resource for you to use at home - we have put a link on the planning to this. The website is funded by the Government and teaches your child a sound a day. We have made sure that our planning corresponds with the sound that is being taught. There is no expectation for you to use this (as we are aware we are already using a lot of online learning resources) and you can continue to do whatever works best for the teaching of Phonics. However the resource is there if you feel it is helpful.
  • We do not expect you to print out any resources or worksheets for any of the subjects. The resources we provide are for the children to look at and all work can be completed in the exercise books that were sent home. Just make sure you write the lesson and date. For Maths work write the question number you are answering.
  • In the home plan we dedicate an hour to English and Maths but we do not expect children to be working/sat at a table for the whole hour. Typically in school, children would have a 5-10 minute teacher input (at home this could be reading the story or the White Rose presentation) and then a 5-15 minute activity. Once children have completed all of the set activities we advise children then learn through their play. You could set up activities linked to their learning to help consolidate what they have just done e.g. a lesson on sharing/halving you could set up a shop and ask them to share the apples equally. Furthermore, if an activity is taking longer than 15 minutes to complete, stop after the 15 minutes and finish either later in the day or during the next lesson.
