Emerald Class 2019

World Book Day 2019

Our Trip to Gomm Wood 2019

Welcome back to all children and parents of Emerald class. I hope you have had a relaxing break and everyone is ready for the challenges ahead! We have a busy half term and our main priority is to get your child happily settled into Year 1.

To help your child (and the teachers!) please could all children have in school:

  • A named PE kit
  • A named water bottle 
  • A named book bag

As we encourage the children to be more independent and responsible for their belongings, it makes it much easier for them if they can find and read their name on their things.


Our topic this term is Incredible Me - an overview of what we will be learning will be available in the next week. We have an  introductory meeting on Tuesday 11th September where we will explain some of what we hope to achieve this year. Please see Mrs Morrisson's newsletter for more details.


PE is on Thursdays for Emerald class.

Reading books will go out in the first full week of term and thereafter will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 

Show and Tell is on Friday and children will be told a week in advance whose turn it is (one group per week).

Homework books will also be coming home shortly - more of that later!

Miss Tomes and myself are really looking forward to getting to know the class and helping them achieve their very best in the coming year.

Whipsnade Zoo

We had a fantastic day at Whipsnade Zoo - thank you to all the parents that helped. We saw a lot of animals and walked a long way. We learnt about camouflage and different habitats in a focus session with the Whipsnade staff, as well as stroking a python.Lazy lions in the sun.

Well done to all of Emerald Class for settling so well into Year One. We are quickly getting used to new routines and challenges. We have started our Bears topic which will last until half term and the Teddy Bear's picnic was a great success. Please keep checking our class page for weekly updates.

Christmas Tree Decorations


Bear Collage


On Monday we went on a sensory hunt in the play ground and forest school to find objects we could use to make a picture. We then created our own dance to represent the objects we found (Feathers, leaves, rocks, sticks and acorn shells)

Today we used all of these objects to create 'CARRINGTON BEAR!'
