Sharman (Rec/Y1)

Welcome to Sharman Class


Teacher: Mr Parkin

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Hewitt


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 'Puddles and Rainbows', 'Sparkle and Shine', 'Winter Wonderland', 'Sunshine and Sunflowers', 'Stories and Rhymes' and 'Let's Explore'.



  • Children must wear their school uniform everyday, unless it is a PE day and they must have a suitable coat for outdoor play. Please ensure you write your child's name inside their uniform.
  • PE is on a Monday afternoon each week.  Please could your child come into school in their PE kit each Monday.
  • 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. Please could you also make sure to sign your child's reading record!

Phonics Screening Check 


The Year 1 Phonics Screening will take place the week of Monday 12th June.

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:

  • 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).
  • Using the Virtual Classroom links provided to the children, scan the QR codes so that children can practise the sounds they have been learning in school.
