Miss Noyes

Mr Matthews

Miss Noyes works Monday to Friday but is covered one morning or afternoon a week by Mr Matthews.

Teaching assistant

Mrs Thatcher works in the class Monday to Friday

We complete early morning activities every day. We encourage your child to be as independent as possible in school; it would be helpful if you could also be mindful of this, especially at drop off.

Reading, spellings and High Frequency Words (HFW)

We try and listen to your child read once a week and books will be changed at least once a week. But please feel free to read other books at home with your children. Book levels are assessed by the class teacher.

High Frequency Words are changed when your child can confidently read the majority of these words. This will be assessed by the teacher and the teaching assistant.

Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested at the end of the following week. Children are expected to practise these 3 times a week.


We usually do PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday, but please make sure your child has their PE kit with them all week as plans can change.

On a Tuesday Mr Matthews may sometimes dismiss your child at home time. So please make it clear which child you are collecting.

We do welcome parent helpers (who are DBS checked) to listen to readers, so please feel free to approach Miss Noyes if you are able to help. It would be much appreciated.

I have my planning, preparation and assessment time on a Tuesday afternoon and a Wednesday morning. This may mean that either Mr Matthews or Mrs Thomas will welcome or dismiss your child.

If you wish to discuss your child with me, it may not always be possible in the morning. Please make an appointment with me after school.


Your children may receive raffle tickets if they have been helpful or kind relating to our golden rules. We will have a raffle draw each week where the lucky winner will pick a prize.

The adults in the class will give out stickers to children who we think have worked particularly well in their learning.

Thank you for your continuing support.
