I am Mrs Cowell the class teacher and our marvellous teaching assistant is Mrs Hunt. Other adults we have in our class are Mrs Bailey and Miss Austin. Mrs Hayes, our Deputy Head teacher, will be teaching the children every Wednesday morning.
All information will be put on this page so it is important that you check it regularly. Any new information will be put under the 'Notices' section of this page. If you have any other enquiries, please contact the school office via phone or email as unfortunately I am unable to have lengthy conversations at the door.
Please could children wear shoes with velcro on Mondays for PE unless they are able to tie their own laces. Thank you
Phonics: please have a look at the button below called 'Phonics' for how to say each letter sound for Phase 2. The lovely Miss Hall, the Year 1 class teacher, has kindly created this video to help families with the letter sounds. It is essential that you read the letter sounds correctly so that the children are able to blend words more easily.
Your child will only take home a reading book with words if they can recognise 15 or more letter sounds. Until then, they will receive books without words for you to discuss the pictures. If you'd like to record any extra reading you do at home in the reading record that is absolutely fine. Unfortunately, I can't comment in the reading records as normal, but I will be making my own notes on each child's progress in reading. They will be heard read very regularly in school. The children will take home 1 or 2 reading books per week.

No new graphemes are taught in Phase 4. Instead several other skills are taught and we consolidate the phase 2 and phase 3 graphemes.
