Mrs Jackson

Welcome to Class EJ's webpage.

We are a friendly group of Reception and Year 1 children who are very enthusiastic about our learning. Our class teacher is Mrs Jackson and our wonderful teaching assistant is Mrs Wiles. On this page, I will endeavour to keep you up-to-date with news from our classroom. As always, if you have any questions, please speak to a member of our classroom team.


General Information

PE: Our PE session is on a Friday - all children are to come to school already in their PE kits on this day.


Our Belongings: Can parents and carers please make sure all their child's belongings are named, from gloves to water bottles and plimsolls! Your help in this is very much appreciated as our lost property box is often overflowing!


We ask that water bottles are taken home daily, washed, refilled (with still plain water only) and brought back the next day. In addition, the children can bring in a healthy snack for morning break.


Reading: In-line with our Phonics programme, Essential Letters and Sounds, reading books will be changed on a Friday only. The books will be very closely linked to our Phonics learning in the classroom and, initially, will be totally decodable. Keeping the same book over the week will enable your child to read the book more than once - working initially on decoding, then fluency and finally, expression. We do ask for bookbags and pupil planners to be brought into school every day, as often there are letters and information that need to go home. 


Please note: If your child is being collected by someone else, we must have notification (either written or through telephoning the school). If you have any questions, please ask or make an appointment to see us.


Many thanks and we hope you are as excited about the new school year as we are! We look forward to working with you over this academic year.


Year 1 children only - work at home: 

Reading: Children should read at home at least three times a week, preferably five times. Parents and carers should sign planners each time their child reads in order to collect house points. Planners will be checked on Fridays, and house points allocated accordingly, when reading books are changed. 


English and Maths Homework: Each week, the children will have an English and Maths task to complete at home. These tasks will be linked to our learning in the classroom. English homework should be completed on the sheets provided and will be collected on Wednesdays. Maths homework will be set on 'MyMaths' and will be checked on Mondays. Further details on accessing 'MyMaths' will be provided at the start of the year.
