Welcome to Class 1!
Welcome to Class 1 with Mrs Slater-Jones, Miss McMullin and Mrs McPherson!
Welcome back! We have all settled back into our class routines extremely well.
I am so excited for a fabulous year ahead in Class One and I’m sure all of the children are enthusiastic to spend another academic year challenging themselves further.
We are starting the academic year off with a thrilling vehicle that will span across this term; it is called ‘All about me’. This vehicle will enable children to gain a deeper understanding of their bodies, emotions, talents and what makes them unique! We will be covering some truly amazing and engaging books during this time including Guess How Much I Love You, Avocado Baby, Funny Bones, The colour Monster and Memory Bottles.
We are very keen to promote a love for reading and books at St Johns and therefore require parents and carers to leave a weekly comment in your child’s reading diary. By doing this we can work together to help support your child’s reading and comprehension skills develop.
As a reminder to parents and carers Class homework will be given out on a Friday afternoon and is required to be returned back to school by the following Wednesday. This then allows for the necessary time for marking.
In Class One our P.E lessons are on a Monday and a Wednesday. It is important that your child has the correct PE kit in school and can therefore partake in all of the exercise and fun.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
We welcome any feedback or ideas from parents/carers to add to our overview.
Note to Parents: If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school office and we will contact you either by 'phone or Google Meet.

Our Weekly Routine Reminders:
Our PE Days are:
- Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child's PE kit is in school and ensure that any earrings are removed prior to the lessons.
- Please try and read with your child as much as possible in short bursts (e.g. 5 minutes per day) and sign your child's reading diaries to let us know how they are getting on, then we will be able to change their books. We try to read with the children every day in school.
