Happy | Safe | Achieving

Class 5

Welcome to Class 5

Year 1
Class Teacher: Ms Bush
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Jackson and Miss Yeo

Learning Support Assistant: Miss Moth, Miss Lonsdale and Mrs Delaney


Children in Class 5 are able to change their reading books when they have completed their book. We try to encourage independence, therefore children can change their book on their own.


PE days are Monday and Thursday.  Please make sure children have their PE kit in school at all times.


Homework will be sent out on a Monday and then returned on Thursday. Homework will support the learning taking place in the classroom in English and Maths. To help enhance your child’s Maths knowledge at home, we are using a fun, interactive online resource called MyMaths. MyMaths is an interactive online teaching and homework service, full of lessons, quizzes and games, carefully matched to your child’s learning in class. Your child will be set a task and it will appear in the Homework area so don’t forget to log on and see what challenges you have been set. Just go to and use the login information inside your homework book. To develop your childs fluency and comprehension in a fun and interactive manner, Bug Club is set with books that match your childs ability with enough to challenge their reading. 


Phonics sessions take place daily with additional opportunities to read with the class teacher and TA throughout the week. It is expected that the children will read at home at least 3 times a week to encourage fluency and confidence so that they can achieve their full potential.


This term our topics are 'Where We Live' and 'Whatever The Weather'. In the first half term, children will be learning about Basildon and it's changes in living memory. In the second half term, the children will be learning about changes in the weather and looking at seasonal changes.


Doors open at 8:40am and children must be in school by 8:50am. 

School finishes at 3.10pm and the children are to be collected from the classroom's garden door.


Any appointments will need to be made via the class teacher.
