Mandela - Year 1

Welcome to Mandela Class!

The class teacher is Miss Parsons, and she will be supported by Miss Brown - the teaching assistant - and Miss Maggs - the reading assistant. 

We are looking forward to the year ahead. There will be many exciting experiences ahead to support our learning. 

We as the Mandela Class team look forward to a new partnership with you this year as the children grow and learning. Learning is so exciting and so easy when we have so many opportunities at school and at home!


In the New Year P.E. days will be Wednesday and Thursday - please have your child bring in their P.E. kit on these days to change into. 


Homework is handed in on Thursday, and reading books will be changed. We will also be adding children who read four times a week to our reading tree! Please mark clearly in the reading record the number of times your child has read that week ( it does not need to be their school book, it can be books they have enjoyed at home also).

This week 


 This week we celebrated the 100 year anniversary of Women's suffrage by learning about inequality and having a peaceful protest around the school. We all had a very good time and are keen to make sure our futures are fair for everyone!
