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

PE days are Monday and Friday.  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 earrings are removed on PE days.

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.

Transition days.

On Thursday 6th July, children will visit their new classes.  Children need to be dropped off and collected from their normal classroom.  On Friday 7th July, children need to be dropped off and collected from their new Year 2 classrooms.  Please make sure your child's PE kit is taken home on Wednesday after school so that you have it ready for Sports Day on Monday 10th July.  Thank you.

Creative Homework

Well done to the children who have brought in homework this half term for the homework exhibition!


Water bottles!

Stephanie BARSTOW (steph) on: Pine Class Blog

As the weather is hopefully becoming warmer, please make sure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.  This is especially important on a Friday when we are running a mile in PE lessons.  Children can take water bottles with them to the field.  Also, please make sure that children have appropriate footwear to change into such as trainers or pumps.  Thank you.


Pine Class Election!

The children in Pine Class wrote their manifesto's and read them out in front of the class.  Today they completed their voting cards to say who they would like to win.  Congratulations to Florence and Riley, our newly elected Pine Class Chiefs!
