Remote Learning in Class 1


All remote learning for Class 1 will take place on Tapestry . Each day there will be 4 tasks uploaded; a pre-recorded phonics lesson, a maths input and task, an English task and then a task relating to other curriculum areas. 


I have also added an 'Additional Activities' sheet for both Reception and Year 1. This is bank of activities that you can chose from for daily practice in English and Maths. You can find them below as well as in the 'Documents' section of Tapestry.


It is vitally important that we have daily contact with each child, Tapestry is a quick and easy way to do this, uploading pictures and videos of your child's work as well as comments. If you are unable to do this, a quick email or telephone call to let me know how the day's learning has gone will be fine. 


Welcome to Class 1.

Our Teacher this year is Mrs Jarvis. Our teaching assistant is Miss Hopper


Every Wednesday  afternoon Mrs Jarvis has PPA time and Ms Hopper  will lead the class that afternoon.

There are 19 children in our class, 10 are in reception and 9 are in Year 1.


Key Dates

Wednesday is our PE day. Children should come to school dressed in their PE kit on this day. 


Reading books will be given out on Fridays and should be returned to school on the following Monday to allow for books to be quarantined for the correct amount of time. 




Spring Term



Our topic this term is 'Our Wonderful World'. We will learn about the four countries that make up the United Kingdom and focus our learning on London. We will then compare London to an African Country which will link to our class text 'Handa's Surprise'. As part of our learning about London, we will learn about The Great Fire of London. 


In RE, our topics are Celebrating (Reception) and Special People (Y1)


All children will take part in Read Write Inc activities everyday , practicing reading and then writing letter sounds. 


Reception and Year 1 children will have access to continuous provision indoors and outdoors throughout the day. 


In Science we will explore seasonal changes, learning all about winter; the weather, what clothes we need to wear , what we might see and how animals cope with winter.
