Our Learning

Red Area

Welcome to Red Area. We have three classes in our area:

Jasper Class - Year 1 with Miss Turle

Garnet Class - Year 2 with Miss Paine

Ruby Class - Year 1/2 with Miss Warlow (Mon & Tues) and Miss Crandon (Wed - Fri)

There are also four teaching assistants in Red Area.

Mrs Ireland (HLTA), Miss Jones (1.1 SENTA am and TA pm) Mr Stevens (1.1 SENTA afternoons) and Miss Zagroo (1.1 TA mornings).

Mrs Ireland, our Higher Level Teaching Assistant, also provides PPA (Planning, Preparation and Assessment) cover for the teachers in Red Area. She is with Jasper Class on a Wednesday afternoon and Garnet on a Thursday afternoon.

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: Wednesday and Thursday

Garnet Class: Monday and Thursday

Ruby Class: Monday and Wednesday


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.
