Welcome to Puffin Class

Miss Emsley and Mrs Emmins

Puffins Staff:

Miss Emsley - Class teacher

Mrs Emmins - Teaching Assistant


Our PE days for this term are on a Wednesday and Friday, so please make sure your child has their full P.E. kits on these days. Please also make sure any ear piercings are removed on these days. We will keep P.E. kits in school and send them home each half term to be washed.


Our Class Charter

We will:

Listen to our teachers and friends.

Be brave and curious in our learning.

Be kind to everyone.

Keep our classroom tidy.

Be helpful.


Homework expectations:


  • On Fridays the children will also bring home a special RWI 'book bag book' that links to the one they have been reading. This is an unfamiliar text and will therefore test the skills they learnt the week before to read it.  Ideally the children should be reading 5 times a week.
  • On Wednesday, your child will also be set a RWI inc book via the Oxford Owl website. This is the book that they will have been studying that week in their RWI lessons. 
  • Children can also borrow a 'Reading for Pleasure' book from the classroom or a library book.




For now no formal Maths homework will be set. However, is always helpful to practise counting. In Year 1 we will be counting in 1s forwards and backwards to 100, in 2s forwards and backwards to 24 and in 10s forwards and backwards to 120. Practising speedy knowledge of number facts such as number bonds (to 10 or 20), doubles and halves is also beneficial. 



In the Summer Term we will be setting spelling practise for the children. More information to follow...



We will keep you updated on our class Teams page for any other homework set later on in the term.
