Mountfields Lodge School


Welcome to Class Opal


Mrs Lloyd (Mon, Tues, Wed) and Mrs Stevenson (Thurs, Fri) are the class teachers in Class Opal with Mrs Adams, Mrs Hazel and Miss Lewis.


Here are a few useful pieces of information;


Although we will use ‘Seesaw’ (our online learning platform) to send home messages throughout the year, and of course to ‘set’ your weekly Home-Learning tasks, this Class Page shares with you some of the information you might need throughout the year.

Reading books are sent home every Friday to be returned on Monday morning. 
Home Learning: There will be a Seesaw task set each week (Out on Thursday - due in Tuesday) . These will be either phonics or Maths.

P.E: Indoor PE is on a Tuesday and Outdoor PE is on a Thursday - please come in your kit on both days. When the weather is colder we suggest wearing a warm pair of long trousers, a t-shirt, a long sleeved top and a pair of trainers. (Please remember to bring spare socks and shoes if the weather is wet)
Remember all you need is a coat, a book bag, a water bottle and your lunch box (if needed) each day. Please do not bring anything you don't need. Rucksacks are not recommended as they do not fit well on coat pegs.


Please remember to name ALL items of clothing that are regularly removed in school, coats, jumpers, cardigans and PE hoodies. If they have a name in they can easily be returned to your child. 

Thank you.
