Class 1

Welcome to Class 1!

 

Happy New Year!

 

Welcome back, I hope that you have all had a wonderful Christmas break.  Here in Class 1 we will be reaching for the stars as we fly high in 2019.  The classroom will be hive of activity, with lots of exciting learning experiences to be enjoyed.  

 

Class 1 will continue to be taught every morning by Mrs Hobkirk.  Mrs Hobkirk will also teach Class 1 on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.  On Thursday and Friday afternoons the children will be taught by Miss Holder.  Every afternoon, Reception and Year 1 will be joined by Year 2.  

 

Our value this term is 'Perseverance'.  We will be focusing on this value in Worship and in class; linking it where appropriate to other areas of learning. 

 

Our class page will be regularly updated so please be sure to have a look from time to time   

to see what fun learning we have been up to.

 

On Friday mornings (between 8.45 and 9.00 am) you are very welcome to join us in our classroom to have a look at the children's books and our classroom displays.

 

I look forward to working closely with you this term.  If there is anything I can help with please feel free to come in and speak to me.

 

Mrs Hobkirk
