St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Class 1

Welcome to Class One!

Our class scripture quote:
‘God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.’
Genesis 1:31

In our class we have Reception and Year 1 children. Our teachers are Miss Bennett, Mrs Reid (1 day- Forest School), and teaching assistant, Miss Harrison.

Within our Early Years classroom we strive to develop inquisitive learners who are not afraid to try new things, persevere with a challenge and feel proud of all their accomplishments.

Important information

Reading books

It is recommended that you read with your child for 10 minutes, 5 times per week. Reading books are changed every Monday and Friday. If your child has not read at home, their book will not be changed. If your child has a picture book to look at with you, please talk about the pictures with your child and ask them some questions about what is happening in the pictures. Please ensure all books kept in your child’s blue book bag to avoid reading books becoming lost.

Wizard words

Please follow the links below to find a list of our wizard words. Reception children: Please help your child to read the red wizard words by practising them regularly. Y1 children to practise reading and spelling the wizard words.

When we think your child is confident of the words, we will move them on to the next set (blue wizard words). We check them in class on a weekly basis.


Each child will receive a red home learning book, where you will find a ‘learning letter’ explaining the homework that week. Homework is sent home every Friday, and should be returned completed on Monday.


Class One have PE every Tuesday and Friday. PE bags should stay in school and will be sent home every half term to be washed.

Forest School

Every Monday, Class One will have Forest School with Mrs Reid. We ask that your child comes dressed ready, wearing a school polo shirt, leggings or joggers and a school hoodie. To be kept in school, your child should have a bag with wellies and water proof pants and jacket.

Drinks and snacks

Children in Class One can get a piece of fruit and a carton of milk at play time each day. However you may wish to provide your child with another healthy snack for playtime, no crisps or chocolate please. Your child can also bring a water bottle from home to stay in class.


We use SeeSaw to update our families on our recent learning. We aim to post photos at least once per week. We strongly encourage our families to share photos from home with us using the app, so that your child can proudly share these during ‘Show and Tell’.
