Welcome to Class 6 


Class 6 are a friendly bunch of creative and thoughtful children who love to learn. Our teachers are Miss Henshaw and Mrs Jackson and our teaching assistant is Mrs Western. We enjoy lots of fantastic learning experiences and every day our skills are improving! We do daily lessons in Maths, English and Phonics and have lots of opportunities to enhance and enrich our learning in our Continuous Provision areas. During our learning we have opportunities to discover indoors and outdoors. 

On our webpage you will find updates on our learning and important information. This will also be communicated on Class Dojo where regular updates will be shared, so please make sure you are connected. You can see an overview of our learning throughout the year here.


You can find our "Welcome to Year 1" Powerpoint from our Open Evening here. 

Some parents asked at the meeting about how to help with maths at home and which resources are good to get: click here for some suggestions!


 Useful Information

 Our PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please remember to come in PE kits, tie long hair back and take out or tape up earrings. 


The children take part in reading activities every day and are expected to have their reading book and reading record with them every day. We really appreciate all the help and support you give your child reading with them at home – it makes a huge difference to their learning.

This term our topic is "All Around Me". We will be learning about our new class and how we all belong to the Ladycross family; a theme that will include making maps of our school. We will then be thinking about what it means to belong to a faith community in RE and will be exploring different faiths. We will also be learning about different animal types and even making zoos for our animals to enjoy! In English we are looking forward to becoming authors, retelling The Little Red Hen and Farmer Duck as well as using our knowledge of "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" to create our own animal hunt books!
