Dandelion Class Year - 1

               Welcome to Dandelion Class!

Welcome to Summer 1


This term our theme will be 'Pirates' 

Teacher - Miss Howell
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Collins & Mrs Fleet
PPA cover - Mrs Bryant

Dandelion Class will have their P.E. day on a Tuesday and the children can wear their P.E. kits into school.The sessions will be outside for as long as possible, so please make sure children have appropriate clothing and footwear. 

As always, the children will be expected to read at least four times a week and an adult needs to record any home reading in their yellow Reading Records. If you finish the book, please make sure this is also recorded so it can be changed. If completed, books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday.  Want extra books or for them to be changed more often? Speak to an adult in class. 

There will be a certificate and a treat for those children who complete this! Please encourage and support your children with their reading. Home books can be included in the reading record too!


Some children will have weekly spellings. They will be tested on a Tuesday morning. If your child does not have spelling yet, please continue to practice their phonic sounds. 


If you need to speak to me, please catch me before or after school. If a longer chat is more appropriate, please ring the office to make an appointment.

Thank you for your support already. I look forward to a lovely year with all your children! 


Miss Howell :)
