Who's Who?


Class Teacher: Mrs McKay

Yr1 Maths, English,Phonics and Science Teacher: Miss Kearns

Teaching Assistant: Miss Marsh




At Barrow, we feel passionately that the most significant thing that you, as parents, can do to support your child’s learning is to share books with them on a regular basis. By this we mean reading to your child, listening to your child read and talking about what you are reading. As adults, we are all reading role models – there is lots of evidence that children seeing their parents read is a powerful factor in encouraging them to read more frequently.


Becoming a confident reader able to understand a range of texts is hugely important – it allows a child to grow in confidence and to access all areas of the curriculum.


Your child should spend short periods of time (10-15 minutes) reading at least 3 times a week, talking about their reading or listening to an adult read. Each child has a reading record and we ask that you record any reading activities in the home - either online Bug Club or actual books.  Reading diaries will be checked weekly by the class teacher.



Your child will receive spellings each Friday to be tested the following Friday. These are based on the common exception words and phonic sounds your child is learning. It is important to learn spellings for writing.


Pick n Mix Homework Menu 

At the start of each half term, your child will share a 'Pick n Mix Homework Menu' via SeeSaw and the school website. This will be based on the topic and units that your child is covering that half term. Please send your work in with your child or through Seesaw.
