Growing to Succeed

Horsfall Street, Morley, Leeds

Headteacher: Gillian Austerfield


The children enjoyed making fruit kebabs in our DT lesson.  They also used their knowledge of senses to describe the fruit.


Welcome to Pine Class in Year 1.  The teacher is Mrs Barstow.

PE days are Tuesday and Thursday.  Please remember that all children need a suitable PE kit with them in school at all times and children should wear:

  • white t-shirt
  • a pair of royal blue shorts
  • appropriate footwear for outdoors
  • a warmer tracksuit for outdoors

Please ensure that all jewellery including earrings, bracelets etc are removed on PE days.

Long hair also needs to be tied back.

Children should also bring their book bags to school everyday along with a named water bottle.  Please note that snack (fruit or vegetables) are provided in school so please just bring a water bottle.

Spelling and Maths homework is sent home every Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday.  It is important that you also read with your child every day for 10 minutes.  This should be recorded in the reading record.

We will have a weekly spelling test on a Friday.

Making a guitar!

The children would like to make their own guitars in school.  If you could collect any empty tissue boxes and send them into school we would be very grateful.

Thank you.

I hope you have all had a lovely Summer.  Don't forget your water bottles and PE kits!  Please remember that book bags need to be named and the standard school size so that they can be stored in the children's trays.  I am looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday!

Mrs Barstow.
