In Class 1 you will find our wonderful Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. Our teaching team consists of Mrs Powles, Mrs Fallows, Ms Carter and Miss Kaur. We have the most beautiful, new, outdoor area which we are so excited to use and share with our children. Our indoor and outdoor environments are vibrant, fun and awe-inspiring. We plan activities that engage our children and help to develop lifelong skills and a real love of learning. Every day is different and exciting! Our topics cover a breadth of knowledge and skills, which help to equip our children for their learning journey through, The Howard school.

Class 1 Timetable


Our P.E. day is Thursday. We kindly ask that the children come to school dressed in their P.E kit on this day.


Our Forest school day is a Tuesday. Please send you child into school with their forest school kits on this day. The children will be taking part in forest school sessions on alternate weeks. More information will be shared with you on Dojo. 


Our Curriculum

We follow a 2 year rolling program at The Howard. Details of all of our curriculum plans can be found here.


Knowledge organisers for Key stage 1

Please find below this term's knowledge mats. These will provide children and parents with an overview of our topics, key vocabulary that can be discussed and learnt at home and some possible areas for further work and exploration at home. Any support will allow your children to further deepen their knowledge of these topics.

Our spelling day for Year 1 and 2 will take place on Friday. Each week the children will be given a set of spellings linked to our Monster phonics lessons, to learn at home. Please look out for more information about Year 1 and 2 spellings on our class dojo page.


Reading for Pleasure 

 We believe that it is important to encourage everyone to develop a 'Life-long Love of Reading'.

Children will have opportunities throughout the week to 'read for pleasure'. The children will have the opportunities to bring in books from home or borrow a book from the library. Below are a list of Recommended Reads for Reception and Year 1Why not challenge your child to read them all during school the year?
