Yellow Class 2021 - 2022

Yellow Class Teacher

Dear Parents,


Welcome to Yellow Class. I hope you have all had a lovely Summer and were able to enjoy time making memories and seeing friends and family.


I hope you will find the following information useful.


Staff in Yellow Class are

  • Mrs Swallow
  • Mrs Degg
  • Mrs Benson



Our first topic of the year is ‘Discoverers’. We will be learning about the our world and animals that live in it.  (see our medium term plan for all the details.)


Reading  - Reading is such a vital part of your child’s learning so please read at home with the children. Ten minutes a day really does make all the difference. Please write in child’s reading diary so that they can move along our reading stars. If the children read 5 times in a week they will get a sticker in a special booklet. The children will read in school regularly through individual reading, paired reading, guided reading and whole class reading.


Spellings – Spellings are changing this year and there will be no more weekly spelling quizzes in any year group. There will be a letter coming out with more details soon.


PE and outdoor learning - PE will be on a Tuesday and Friday. Children will need to come to school in PE kits every Tuesday and Friday. They will NOT get changed at school. If we are doing outdoor learning – I will text/ email to let you know in advance. Waterproofs and wellies can be kept in school – they are useful to have in school so we can still get outside even on wet days. Please name everything!

Homework - Children will be given homework on a Friday. It will need to be returned the following Wednesday. 


Snacks – Please send snack in a SMALL container or just with your child’s name on. Remember we are a Nut Free school.


Helpers – Unfortunately, at this current time, we are unable to have parent helpers in school yet.


If you have any queries/ questions then please email me or ring school and I will do my best to help


Finally, I am so lucky to be working with your children this year. I know the year will be filled with learning, adventures, laughter and lots of fun!


Kind regards,


Debbie Swallow and Team Yellow
