Welcome to Class One!
Class One is a happy, caring and busy learning environment. The children are taught by Mrs Carpenter who is also the Senior Teacher at Mary Howard and are supported by Miss Knights. It is a mixed class consisting of Reception, Year One and Year Two.
PE takes place on Monday and Thursday afternoons and the children are expected to wear their PE kit to school on these days.
A home reading book and accompanying diary is given out on a Friday. By working closely with parents and communicating through the diary, the books are regularly changed and monitored carefully, ensuring that the children have understood and enjoyed reading their book at home.
Homework is varied and can include a Maths, English or a topic based challenge and this is also given out on a Friday. Homework should be returned by the following Tuesday.
We also use ClassDojo in Class One to share news and the successes of the children with their parents and carers.
