Class 1GF


Welcome to Class 1GF


Teachers of Class 1GF: Mrs L. Grove and Mrs. A. Fallows

Teaching Assistant: Ms L. Shahbanzadeh 

 P.E. in Class 1GF

  • Monday/Tuesday - Dance/Gymnastics - remember no earrings
  • Thursday - Outdoor games (we do not get changed for this)

Children need to leave their P.E. kit at school; we will send it home to be washed every half term. For outdoor games children do not need to change into kit.

Long hair must be tied back and no jewellery please. In Year 1 children should be able to change for P.E. by themselves.


Spellings are given out on Friday and need to be learned for the test the following Wednesday. Please help your child to learn their spellings at home – remember Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check.


The children have a homework folder. Homework is given out on a Friday and needs to be returned to school by the following Wednesday.


During the year we will make regular visits to Highfield Country Park. We have at least one class trip during the year, usually to the farm and we will also visit other places in the local area during the year.

Reading books

Your child needs to bring their book bag to school every day. Each week your child will read as part of a group and to a member of staff. Children need to read every night at home and this needs to be written down in their reading record.

As your child finishes their reading book they can change it for another one in the morning. Mrs. Grove or Miss Corrigan will periodically assess your child’s reading to see if they are ready for the next book band. If you would like to help in school we would appreciate some help with hearing the children read. Please see Mrs. Grove or Miss Corrigan if you are available in the afternoons. Thanks!

Your child will also be given key word lists that you can help them to learn to read and write at home.

Friday assembly

Children who have received certificates for out of school activities such as swimming or sporting activities can bring their certificates to show in good work assembly on Friday mornings. During the year there will be an opportunity for parents to come and watch the children in their class assembly. The dates for these will be given nearer the time.
