Zebra Class - Year One


Welcome to Zebra Class 2021/2022

Welcome to Zebra Class! Your teachers are Mrs Norman, Mrs Box and Mrs Crabtree.   

We are looking forward to an exciting year in Zebra Class. We have made many changes to our indoor and outdoor learning environments and we endeavour to deliver a broad, balanced and fun curriculum to the children. 

We will continue to use Class Dojo to keep you updated on what your children are doing in school each week. Please use this to contact us if you need to. 

Term 1 - Welcome to Zebra Class!

We would like to welcome all of our children and their families to the Zebra Class family. We are looking forward to teaching you and working with you all to build positive relationships and building on the foundations of the children's learning in Giraffe Class. 

Below is an outline of some of the learning that we will be focussing on this term. We will be doing as much learning as possible outside so please ensure that your child has a pair of wellies that can remain in school all of the time and that they come to school with appropriate outerwear for the weather conditions such as coats, hats and gloves. 

Please enusre that your child has a named water bottle in school each day. As a school we do provide a healthy morning snack which includes fruit or vegetables. You can provide a healthy snack of your own if you would prefer but please ensure this is named. 

Important Information

Please ensure you have read, signed and returned the 'Home School Agreement' and that you have read the 'Positive Behaviour Policy'. 


The children will be given two reading books every Monday, one will be a book carefully matched to your child's current reading level and the other, a story which can be shared together. These can then be kept at home until Friday when they will need to be returned ready for changing ready for thew following week.  Please listen to your child read everyday and record this in their reading diary.  Your child will read to a teacher/teaching assistant each week using the books we have in school and a record will be kept by the class teachers. 


PE will take place on a Thursday. Please ensure that children WEAR their PE kit to school on these days. We will aim to teach PE outdside as long as the weather permits so please ensure that the children have appropriate clothing for this. Forest School will take place on a Friday. Children need to wear their normal school unifrom but have wellies in school for this. 


A healthy snack will continue to be provided daily however, if you wish to send a snack from home please ensure that it is healthy (no crisps or chocolate etc) and is in a clearly labelled pot/bag. Children also need a drinks bottle every day which is clearly labelled with their name.
