What I need to remember?

It is important that we have our Book Bags, Water Bottles and Reading Book/Record in school everyday! It was also be a brilliant help if each child has a pair of Wellies and Waterproofs in school as we go out in all weathers, come rain or come shine.

PE kits must be in school everyday. Remember PE kits are: white t-shirt, black shorts or joggers, black pumps and black (non-hooded) jumper/jacket.We will send PE kits home on a regular basis to allow you to wash them.

  • Monday's - Celebration Assembly. If you have achieved anything outside of school, please bring this in and hand to Miss Breslin or Mrs Kenworthy.
  • Tuesday's - PE with Miss Breslin. 
  • Wednesday's - Our volunteer librarian, Mrs De-Barkham, comes in to change our library books. Please remember to bring your book so that you can change it!
  • Friday's - PE with our PE Coach Josh.

For further information please find our Welcome to Class One welcome booklet below.

Our Timetable

Please click on the link below to see our class timetable. This can change weekly but it will give you an idea of what we are up to in Class.

What can you do at home?

Learning is important across a child's life, especially in their early years and therefore we ask that children complete little jobs and tasks at home. We encourage children to read, learn their timetables and KIRFS. We do not set specific homework and our Homework Policy can be found by clicking on the link in the policies section under Statuatory Information. However, we encourage our parents to spend time reading with their child, counting and speaking to them about the things they enjoy. There are some suggested nurture activities which can be enjoyed as a family which may help your child to develop all the foundation skills they need to be successful at school. If you would like further help and support with things for you to do at home with your child, please see the staff in class.Take a look at this document so that you know what different activites you can complete at home.

Year 1 must also learn their 2's, 5's and 10 times tables.

What have we been up to in Class One?

This year we have opened up our classroom from 8.30am and children are encouraged to come in to school early to join in with our Funky Finger activities. The children have enjoyed coming in to say good morning too their friends and practisting their fine motor skills.


In Geography we have used Google Earth to look at our local area and where we live. We wrote some wonderful sentences about our own homes. On Tuesday 17th September we put on our wellies and coats and went on a walk up to Bolster Moor. We took pencils, paper and clipboards and sketched some lovely pictures of our local area that we could see from on top of the hill, such as Emley Moor Mast, Castle Hill and Titanic Mill.


On Thursday 19th September, we celebrated National 'Talk like a Pirate Day' as a Federation. All Class One children from across the three schools joined together at Wilberlee Junior and Infant school to take part in a day full of pirate crafts, treasure hunts and pirate themed games. We even dressed up as pirates for the day! We made lots of new friends and we are already looking forward to our next Federation day.
