Our Learning

Red Area

Jasper Class - Year 1 with Miss Turle

There are also four teaching assistants in Red Area:

Mrs Ireland (HLTA), Miss Langman (Tues/Weds/Thurs), Mr Stevens (Mon) and Miss Bush (SEND support).

Mrs Cook, Mr Stevens and Miss Warlow will provide PPA (Planning, Preparation and Assessment) cover for the teachers in Red Area on Tuesday afternoons.

If you have any messages, questions or queries, please write a note in your child’s school planner and ask them to show the planner to their teacher. Alternatively, you can make an appointment to meet with your child’s teacher via the school office.

PE Days

On PE days, the children should come to school wearing their PE kit. This does include tracksuit bottoms and trainers and the children can also wear their school jumper and a coat on these days. For safety purposes, children also need to remove any earrings or jewellery and long hair should be tied back before coming to school, wherever possible.

PE days are as follows:

Jasper Class: Monday and Thursday

Garnet Class: Monday and Thursday

Ruby Class: Thursday and Friday


Year 1 Phonics Screening Check

At the end of Year 1, all the children take a test called a Phonics Screening Check. They have to read 40 real and nonsense words.  We call the nonsense words ‘Alien words’ and the children practice reading them every day.

The following websites could be used at home to help to practice these skills. Click to follow the links.
