Sharman (Rec/Y1)

Welcome to Sharman Class


Teacher: Mrs Champion

Teaching Assistant: Mr Wilson


In Sharman Class we have a mix of children in Reception and Year 1.  The classroom environment is set up so that children in Reception can continue their Early Years Foundation Stage journey alongside children in Year 1 who are just beginning their Key Stage 1 journey.

Your child in Reception will access indoor and outdoor provision which is carefully tailored to cater for children's individual needs and interests.  Your child in Year 1 will take part in many exciting activities linked to our topics 'Memory Box', 'Moon Zoom' and 'Enchanted Woodland'.


Key information for all children:

  • PE is on a Friday morning each week.  Please could your child come into school in their PE kit each Friday.
  • Reading Books - we change children's reading books each week on a Monday and a Friday so please could you remind your child to bring their book bag in to school on these days so that we can give them new books to read.  

Phonics Screening Check 


The Year 1 phonics screening will take place the first week back after half term 6th – 10th June.

Year 2 children who did not pass the phonic screening in the Autumn term will also be resitting the phonics screening check during this week. 

Your child has made super progress in their reading this year.

Let’s keep them reading this half-term for maximum success in the Phonics Screening Check.

Three things you can do to help:

  • Take a look at the ‘Helping your child with Phonics’ information pack to find out how we teach phonics and what resources we use.
  • Listen to your child read the book bag books sent home and the eBooks that they have been allocated on New login cards have been sent home again before the half term. (Some children may be given ditty sheets instead of books.)
  • Click on the virtual classroom links so that children can practise all of the set two and set three sounds ready for the phonics screening check.
