Welcome to Ribble Class!Year 1 children hard at workYear 1 children hard at work


Ribble Class is home to our EYFS and Key Stage 1 children and is taught by Mrs Hailwood on Mondays - Wednesdays and Mrs Evans on Thursdays and Fridays.  Additional support is also provided by Mrs Hobson and Mrs Allman to support our children. 

Learning is fun in Ribble and we blend the important elements of play with the more formal expectations associated with children as they grow up.   To find out about what we are learning about at school please see below:



Early Years and KS 1 Overview


EYFS Development Matters

In our school we use the 'Jolly Phonics' scheme to develop phonics and 'Jelly and Beanreading scheme to develop and promote early reading.  In Key Stage 1 we move onto the 'Oxford Reading Tree' banding system reading schemes.

Phonics Screening - A Guide for Parents

Every day your child needs to bring their book bag with reading book and reading record book in.  Each time you read at home, please make a note in the reading record book.

School provides your child with a water bottle but please provide a fruit or vegetable snack for afternoon playtime. It can be a dried fruit snack but please  no biscuits or crackers.


Our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times. Long hair needs to be tied back for PE days, and earrings taken out or tape sent in for them to be covered up.


Ribble Homework

 Homework for the Year1 and Year2 children is set in the Spring Term and is aimed at supporting them as they prepare for their phonics screening and end of year 2 assessments.
