Welcome to Class 3 with Mrs Dene 

A note from Mrs Dene and Miss Scappaticci .......

Mrs Dene and Miss Scappaticci created a home learning pack.

This was sent home with your child on FRIDAY 20TH March.

This can be accessed via this link w/c23MarchHomelearning

This pack was designed to be used throughout the closure!

Below is a new School closure - Home learning section

Myself and Miss Scappaticci will regularly upload maths, phonics and SPAG (spelling, punctuation and

grammar) activities to this area for any parent that is home schooling their child. 

During the time that would have been the Easter holidays, there will only be suggested reading activities uploaded.

Your child's well being and education is of the utmost importance to me.

Playing Together


Our School day


I have attached a copy of the Year 1 lesson timetable so that you can see how your child's say is structured.

In the Autumn term, we aim to have 2 practical maths lessons that enables your child to learn through play.

Your child will be put into a phonics group based on their need and they will have a daily phonics session.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be back in school by Wednesday.

The children will have maths, phonics and spelling homework.

Spelling tests are done on a FRIDAY.

Reading books

Please can all children have their reading books in school every day.

Children can change their reading books each day if necessary and we encourage the children to do this as part of their daily routine at school.

It is really important that you hear your child read regularly at home as this has a big impact on their progress

When you have heard your child read, please make a comment in their green reading record.




P.E. will be on a MONDAY and FRIDAY for this half term.     Please ensure that your child has their P.E. kit in school on these days.

We will be doing as much of our P.E outdoors this half term, so please ensure that your child has the appropriate P.E kit!!

It is essential that all clothes have their name in as they can easily get mixed up. Please can you help your child practice getting dressed/undressed at home if they are not yet able to get changed by themselves.



As mentioned above - If you need to see me about an issue concerning your child, however big or small, please feel free to see me at the end of the day or arrange an appointment via the office.

Thank you!
