Welcome to yr R/ 1

Hello and welcome to our class page.

We are a mixed Reception and Year One class.

We enjoy a practical, hands on approach to learning and complete activities linked to both the Foundatin Stage and the National Curriculum.

I am Mrs Sowerby and I am the Class Teacher

Miss Russling is our wonderful Teaching Assistant, together we make your learning purposeful, fun and memorable.

Things that you will need to know...

Our PE day is Tuesday but it would be best if PE kits are left at school all week.

We will be going into Bramblebank Woods on a Friday afternoon, please bring suitable clothes to change into - we may get muddy!

We ask for a contribution of £1.50 every half term towards class snacks.


Please click on the links below for the class handbook, this will tell you everything that you need to know about our class.
