Class 1

Welcome to class 1




Welcome to our Class 1 page. Here you will find information about our term including useful dates, timetable outlines and our term's topic. Photos and videos are regularly uploaded onto the page so please be sure to take a look every now and then to see what fun adventures we have been up to.


This year Class 1 are very lucky to have two teachers for different parts of the week. Every morning, Tuesday and Friday afternoon Class 1 will be taught by Miss Ella Hewitt. On a Monday and Thursday afternoon they will be taught by Mrs Ellie McCombie and on a Wednesday afternoon children will take part in a creative curriculum session. Creative curriculum groups change each term so please speak to your child's class teacher to find out which group they are in.


Our afternoon timetable this term is as follows:


Monday - PE

Tuesday - Understanding the World - RE/PSHE

Wednesday - Creative Curriculum

Thursday - Art

Friday - Topic/forest school


On a Friday morning you are invited to come in and take a look at the work your child has been doing that week from 8.35 - 9am. We ask that you leave promptly at 9am so that your child can settle and the learning can get underway.


If there is anything we can help you with please feel free to come in and speak to us. If it is a serious issue we may schedule an after school appointment as things are a little less hectic at this time. 


A class letter with more information will be sent out as the term gets started so keep an eye out for this via your email. We look forward to getting to know you and your little one as the term progresses. 


Miss Hewitt and Mrs McCombie



On Monday 16th July, Class 1 will be performing a class poem to start the semi finals of the poetry competition. This term the theme is 'summer'. Please may you help your child learn the following:


Summer, summer

Time for fun

We run all day

In the hot, hot sun.


Summer, Summer

Jump in the pool

Eat a lot of icecream

To keep cool.


Summer, summer

what a blast

It's nearly the holidays

at long last!


Please feel free to join us in church at 2:30pm on Monday 16th July to see your child perform. 


Please may you help your child to learn the words to the below songs in preparation for our whole school production later this term. Each week I shall add two more songs to the list.


This term we shall be introducing spellings in Class 1. This is very low key but is a chance for each child to earn a special ‘star spellers’ sticker during our Friday celebration worship by getting each spelling correct. At the start of each week, I shall put our spellings on our class page that either use that week’s phonic sounds or are part of that week's high frequency words. I really do not want your child to feel worried about this, so help them to enjoy practicing their spellings by playing missing letter games, writing them in water, shaving foam, sand, sugar , using chalk, foam letters in the bath etc.


This week our spellings are:
