Faithfulness Class

Welcome to Faithfulness class,

My name is Mrs Hodson and I am the Year 1 class teacher our teaching assistant is Mrs Flores.

This year I aim to support your child through an exciting but challenging  learning journey, enabling them to become an independent, passionate and imaginative learner.

Our Autumn book is 'Claude in the city' and alongside this we will be looking at Christmas stories as well as Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole..  While working on these topics , the children will learn a variety of new skills and also consolidate previous learning.


Year 1 have two PE slots each week on Monday and  Thursday. Children are expected to have their kits in school throughout the week to avoid them being forgotten.


Children are expected to read at home every day with their parents. Parents are expected to sign and comment in the record book. The books will be changed twice a week where the children will be given 1 new book to take home. Reading books and book bags are encouraged to come into school every day.


Children will be given homework every week on a Friday which will be expected back by Wednesday  the following week. It is important for  parents/carers to complete the homework with their child to avoid any misconceptions.

Children need to take care with their presentation of homework to reflect the expectations of the work they do in school.


Spellings are sent home every Wednesday in a blue book , Which needs to be returned for a test on the following Monday. 

I look forward to working with your child this year.
