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 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.

Mile Run!

Well done Year 1's for doing the mile run today on the field.  Don't forget to bring water bottles, especially on PE days as well as pumps or trainers! Thank you.


PE Kits

Stephanie BARSTOW (steph) on: Pine Class Blog!

It was fantastic to see so many children with their PE kits today, thank you.  Please make sure that all clothing and pumps/trainers are named so that children find it easier to look after their belongings.  It took some children quite a long time to get changed today so please encourage your child to practise getting dressed and undressed independently at home, including putting on socks and shoes!

As the weather is now starting to get colder, children need to be able to fasten their own coats so please practise, practise, practise!

Thank you

Mrs Barstow
