Red Class


                                             Welcome to Red Class

The staff in Red class are: 
Mrs Scott Class Teacher and Deputy Head

Miss Goodwin & Miss Colak Teaching Assistants




Red Class have had a great start and have loved their first few days last week. All the children have had the opportunity to explore our indoor and outdoor classrooms. 

All children have been given a peg with their names on to help them recognise the letters in their names. 


Important Information


In the mornings children are asked to put their purple book bags in the box provided and their packed lunches in the basket. We encourage children to bring flat book bags, no rucksacks please as we have limited space to store these. 


On Thursdays and Fridays,  Red class will take part in a P.E session with the Accrington Stanley trained coaches. Please can your child come to school dressed in their P.E kits. This should consist of:

  • a plain white T-shirt
  • black shorts/joggers for cooler weather
  • black pumps (no trainers please)
  • Children can wear their school jumper/cardigan over the top of their PE kits. 


From Friday, Reception pupils will be sent home with a homework task and a set of key words to learn to read. The children will be tested on the words every Wednesday. Please can you help your child learn these words. 

Children will be sent home reading books soon. 


This term our topic is "Amazing Me". The children will be talking about themselves, their families, likes and dislikes, pets and things that interest them. 



As the weather is so unpredictable and is  getting colder, please ensure your child brings to school a warm hat and gloves. 



If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to speak to a member of the team.
