Class 1 Information for parents 2020-2021

Dear Parent/Carer,

Welcome to Class 1 J

We are very aware that starting school is already a big step for you and your child. Even though it is going to be a very unusual start to the new academic year, we are confident that your child will settle well into their new classroom and daily routines.  We are creating our own ‘class bubble’ and our daily routine involves regular hand washing and sanitising.

The Foundation Phase is based on developing children’s skills, knowledge and understanding and encouraging them to be independent learning. Our topic focus at the moment is on wellbeing, ensuring all pupils are happy, settled and ready for learning and continuing to make progress.

Class information

  • Mrs Coombes will be your child’s class teacher on a Monday and Tuesday, and Mrs J Davies will be their teacher on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
  • Each child will be provided with their own stationary pouch which will include coloured pencils, chalks, whiteboard and pen.
  • We have fruit snack everyday so your child can bring in a piece of fruit daily.
  • PE for this half term will be carried out outside. There is no need to provide PE kit for your child. However, you may wish to dress them in trainers and joggers on a Friday for our PE day.
  • Outdoor Learning shall be a key feature for many of our learning activities so please provide your child with a pair of named wellies that can be left in school and ensure they wear a waterproof coat daily.
  • Please ensure that your child has a change of clothes in their bag on a daily basis, in case of toilet accidents. If your child needs changing twice during the day, they will then be changed into spare school clothes which will come home with them. They will need to be washed and returned to school the following day.
  • Hometasks will be set weekly on a Friday and will be set online on our class page on the school website. (
  • Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school every day, clearly marked with their name and filled from home. There is no need to bring any other resources to school.
  • Please ensure that you have read and signed forms relating to your child’s photograph being shown on our Twitter/school web page.

    General reminder – pleases label all clothing as the children tend to take cardigans and jumpers off and forget to put them on their pegs.

This weeks home task is to learn a number rhyme.  

Please show your child a selection of number rhymes. Ask them to choose their favourite and learn it. E.G. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 once I caught a fish alive, 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed, 10 green bottles etc.

It would be lovely if you could record your child saying their rhyme and tweet it to us @BryncethinPS1 We can then play it in class next week.


Have a lovely weekend everyone :-)

Happy Friday Class 1! Thank you for another lovely week in Nursery.


You should be receiving your login details for Oxford Owl this afternoon, via email. This is what we will be using for our home reading this term. Please follow the instructions on the email to access the correct books. They are picture books to begin with, so please have plenty of discussions with your child about what they can see happening etc. We will also be starting group guided reading in class in the next few weeks.


Thank you for your continued support.

Have a lovely weekend :-)

Happy Friday Class 1! 

This week we have been looking at the letter 'p' and it's sound. We have been learning how to form it when writing and how to sound it out. For your homework this week we would like you to go on a hunt around your home, or even go for a walk, and search for things beginning with 'p'.

Please make a list of the things you find, take a photo of it and upload it to twitter so we can see all the wonderful things that you have found. @BryncethinPS1

Have fun! :) 


Enjoy your weekend,

We are always practicing forming our numbers in Class 1. For your homework this week we would like you to practice forming your numbers in the most fun way possible.

Here are a few ideas: in shaving foam (on a tray), on the side of the bath using bath crayons, using a paintbrush and mud/water, in a tray of custard, in glitter. Please take a photo of yourself doing this task and upload it to twitter @BryncethinPS1


Have a wonderful weekend!

We have been reading the story of The Gingerbread Man this week, and we have learnt that he is a really fast runner! For your homework, we would like you to design a pair of super fast running shoes for the Gingerbread Man. You can either choose to decorate an old pair of your own shoes, draw around your foot and decorate that, or design and cut a pair out using cardboard. Please take a photo of your design and upload it to twitter @BryncethinPS1.


Have a lovely long weekend!
