Mountfields Lodge School



Welcome to Class Topaz

Our Class: We are a wonderful class of Year 1 children. Mrs Richardson teaches us at the beginning of the week and Mrs deRijk teaches us at the end of the week. Mrs Buswell and Mrs Alderson also work in our class all week. Remember all you need is a coat, your reading book and your lunch box each day. Please do not bring anything you don't need. This helps us keep our classroom tidy. 
P.E: Outdoor PE is on a Tuesday and Indoor PE is on a Thursday - please come in your kit on both days. When the weather gets colder we suggest wearing a warm pair of long joggers, a long sleeved top, hoodie and a pair of trainers. Please remember to bring spare socks and shoes, just in case trainers get wet and muddy. We will also be doing the Mountfields Mile on a Friday so please come in trainers or bring them with you.

 Home Learning: There will be a Seesaw task set each week (Out on Thursday - due in Tuesday) . These will be either Phonics or Maths. Our reading books will be sent home on Friday and need to be returned on a Monday.
