Red Class (YR/1)

Welcome to Reception - Red class.

Your class teacher is Mrs Hill.

In Red class, we love to learn. Our Early Years curriculum is exciting, fun and hands-on. The children are encouraged to play and explore, solve problems, be creative and think critically through carefully planned activities and opportunities. Our children are active in their learning and are given a wide range of learning tasks in order to take risks, develop resilience and to become more independent.


We learn in the following curriculum areas:

Religious Education

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Communication and Language

Physical Development

Literacy - Reading/Writing/Phonics


Understanding The World

Expressive Arts and Design


If you need to contact your class teacher for any support they can be reached on:


Your child will be regularly receiving home learning. This will mostly be centred around the sounds they are learning in phonics that week. It is important you support your child's learning by working with them to learn their sounds.



In Red Class, PE will be on Monday and Tuesday. Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit and ensure they are wearing no jewellery on these days.
