Meet our wonderful team
Welcome to Class 4! Our teacher is Mrs Collier and our teaching assistants are Miss Connolly, Miss Soulsby and Mr Patey.
Our Class Charter
Our class promises are decided by the children in our class. They are the rules and values that they think are most important to help our class be the best it can.
We have such an exciting curriculum in our class which is based around the Keystage 1 National Curriculum. We enjoy our English and maths sessions and all of the other subjects across the national curriculum but also the range of exciting, additional opportunities that we also organise in order to enrich the experiences of our children.

Our reading ‘Story Suitcases’
We really value reading at South Stanley Infant and Nursery, and know the positive impact reading for pleasure has on your child’s future achievements. That is why we have our Y1 and Year 2 story suitcases which each has 12 of our favourite stories in. We focus on one story a per week, reading it at least once per day every day of the week. This helps the children to get to know these carefully chosen stories inside out! They learn the repeated refrains, new vocabulary, get excited when anticipating events in the story. It enables them to know the book well enough to talk about it with their friends and to use this story knowledge in their play, recreating and innovating new tales of their own!
These are the stories your child will enjoy in Class 4.
In our class we have daily English, maths, phonics and reading sessions.
Book bags and Homework
All of our children are provided with a book bag and reading record, which we ask parents to sign and comment in so we can see how the children are progressing at home.
We ask that ALL children bring their book bag to school every MONDAY. The children will be given a reading book and reading record linked to their phonics unit for the week. The children will also get the opportunity to choose a reading for pleasure book from our library to enjoy at home with family.
On THURSDAY we send home 1 piece of phonics homework and 1 piece of maths homework. These short activities will give a flavour of what we are working on in school, and provide an opportunity for children to consolidate their learning.
We always love to hear from home, we really welcome the children to share celebrations and achievements outside of school. Whether it is simply a photograph of something exciting you have been up to, an extra piece of work your tried at home or even a book you really enjoyed. We love to hear about it! It also provides on opportunity for children to explain their news to their friends and ask and answer questions.
Our children enjoy a range of teacher led challenges and child led learning and play, and we think you’ll agree, they certainly are having fun
