Meet Class 1

Welcome and thank you for visiting the class 1 page. 

A special warm welcome to parents who have become part of our school community this academic year.


We know how keen you will all be to see what your children will be doing in school so we will do our best to keep this page updated and share work and pictures of your children’s learning journey.


Please find some key information including staff names, important days, current and future Cornerstones Topics.

General Things:


Children will be placed in appropriate Read Write Inc. (phonics) groups.  Spelling lists for children who are ready, will be sent home on Fridays. They will be stuck inside the orange spelling book. Help your child learn their spellings (get them to write the words down). Spelling tests will be held the following Friday.



Once the children have settled in, Homework will be sent home every Wednesday and books need to be handed back in by Monday.



Children will read a book in school with an adult. The same book will be sent home that week. This might be a picture book to start with. Please discuss the pictures or read the story with your child daily for about 5-10 mins.



P.E is on Thursday afternoon. Please make sure your child brings an appropriate P.E kit.


Weekly updates for each half term will be added under the relevant tabs below.


One family, growing together in love and faith, flourishing in an ever-changing world. We love, we believe, we shine, we achieve.
