Headteacher: Gillian Austerfield


We enjoyed our RSPB Workshop today!


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

PE days are Monday 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 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.

In DT the children made fruit kebabs and learnt how to peel and use the bridge and fork hold to prepare the fruit.  They also enjoyed eating them!

On Thursday 18th January at 9.05am, Year 1 will be having an assembly to showcase their learning from this half term.


We would like to invite you to join us for the assembly, where you will hear about the book that we are reading in English this half term.  You will also have the chance to visit the classroom and for your child to show you the work that they have completed so far this year.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Reading Days and PE kits!

Stephanie BARSTOW (steph) on: Pine Class Blog!

After the Christmas break, the children will read on various days during the week, so can I please ask that book bags are brought to school every day with reading records and books.  Reading books were changed today for children who had brought their books to school.

PE kits will be sent home today, so please take the time to make sure that all kit and bags are clearly named.  These should be returned to school the first day back after the holidays.

Please can I just take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support this year and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Mrs Barstow
