Latest news: We are really trying to improve our reading fluency this term, so remember to practise at home and bring your book to school every day. Thanks
My name is Mrs Barford and I am the lucky teacher of the wonderful children in class 1/2B. In our class we have children from both Year 1 and Year 2 and we will be having a busy year learning lots of new skills through fun activities and topics. We are lucky to have Mrs Huyton as our full time teaching assistant, and Miss Fort also teaches us on a Tuesday morning.

Useful class information.
P.E lessons will usually be on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child's shorts, t-shirt and pumps are in school so they are able to take part. Ear rings are not allowed during P.E lessons so it is best to leave them at home on a Wednesday.
All Clothing should have your child's name on the labels. Children can get quite distressed if they cannot identify their own belongings. Jumpers with names on can quickly be returned to the child.
Children will receive a piece of fruit each day at school, but no longer have milk. Most children choose to have a water bottle in school, which they can refill each day.
Homework: Your child will be given a reading book to enjoy with family at home. Children who practise regularly make much faster progress with their reading, and this helps them across the whole curriculum. Children may choose a new book each day. Please ensure your child brings their book every day as we also read with grown ups in school.
A spelling sheet will usually be given to the children on a Friday. This is to learn letter patterns and to practise their handwriting. Sheets can be returned by the following Friday. We have a spelling test each Friday.
We use the free DOODLE MATHS app for our maths homework. Your child will be given a password and we encourage them to spend a few minutes on the app each day. It really helps to embed basic maths skills and knowledge, and the children love it!
If you have any questions or concerns please speak to Mrs Barford or Mrs Huyton and we will do our best to help.
