Welcome to 1​B's Class Page​​​​

For safeguarding reasons, if someone different is to collect your child at the end of the day, please let us know! You can tell us at the start of the day or by phoning the school office.


Our PE times change each half term so to avoid confusion, it is best if your child's PE kit stays in school for the half term rather than being sent home each week!
Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school (T-shirt, shorts and pumps/trainers) and that all items are clearly labelled with their name. We encourage children to practise getting dressed at home to help them get changed independently in school.
Snack is 20p a day (or £1 a week) for a piece of fruit in the morning. Please send your child's money in in an envelope with their name clearly marked.
Free fruit is provided in the afternoon.

Reading books:

Please read with your child every night and bring book bags into school every day. It is important that you sign and date their reading record when you have heard them at home!

Water bottles:

Children can bring in a water bottle to keep in class which they can access throughout the day. It is school policy however, that drinks must be water only. Please make sure your child's name is written clearly on their water bottle.
Homework will be sent home each Friday, to be returned the following Monday!
Please ensure that your child does not bring in toys from home as we have found that these are often the cause of upset, especially if they are lost or damaged. 
Thank you for your support.​

This term we are exploring "Heroes"! We will be using the wonderful book "Traction Man is Here" by Mini Grey as our focus.  We will be further exploring story strucure and sequences, characters and settings and the use of speech bubbles. We will create our own adventure for Traction Man. Also, we will be using the story as stimulation for many other activities. Some of those activities will include:

  • creating a healthy smoothie for a Superhero
  • exploring what it takes to be a hero
  • learning about real life heroes - especially a hero from Runcorn
  • using the internet to search for information about our Runcorn hero
  • exploring materials to design a mask or cape for a superhero
