Welcome back! There are twenty seven pupils in Sparkle Class this year! I, Miss LeVardi, am the Year 1 class teacher and Miss Lord is our Teaching Assistant. We support the children in their learning every day. Miss Rawlinson will also be working with us some afternoons.


This year, we will be finding out all about Flight; who invented the first aeroplane. We will be learning about past and present royalty in our castles topic and differences in countries through our study of Africa. In summer term we will also learn about explorers and space; looking at Amelia Earhart and Neil Armstrong. All this, as well as preparing for Phonics Screening in Summer Term!


We look forward to showing you how we develop and progress as we work hard in our learning.


If you have any worries or concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to contact me via my staff email on

Snack Time 

Morning break begins at 10:30am. If you wish to you can send your child in with a healthy snack.  

In the afternoon, we have snack time just before home time. This is a piece of fruit of your child's choice or you can send your child in with another healthy snack.  



We ask you to read with your child as much as possible. Once you have read with your child, please fill in their reading record to let us know. We will change reading books every Friday so please ensure your child’s reading record and books are in their school bag. We will send home two reading books per week; we ask you to please read these books at least twice and focus on the comprehension questions that have been sent home as a book mark. 


Please continue to practice your child's phonics at home using your sound board. If you are unsure of how to say a sound see one of us in school or use this interactive sound wall to help remind the children 


We are going to star sending home a mix of real and alien words for your children to add sound buttons to and read at home in preparation for their phonics screening.
