Y1 - Leopard

Welcome to the Y1 - Leopard page!

In Leopard class we have two teachers- Mrs Silbereis and Mrs Prideaux. In the mornings our teaching assistant is Mrs Butterfield and she will also be our reading assistant in the afternoons!
Each morning, we work in groups for Read Write Inc, English and Maths and in the afternoons we have various creative activities such as topic, PE, swimming and music.
We are very lucky because we also get to play! We have 'Funky Friday Fitness' every week and enjoy getting plenty of exercise!


Days to remember
For your information, we have PE on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon – please remember your full PE kit as these are fun lessons to take part in! Please also remember that if your child wears earrings, they need to be taken out that morning before school.


About the teacher- Mrs Silbereis

I have been teaching at Barley Close for 7 years, during which time I have mainly taught Reception and Year 1. I recently came back from maternity leave and am loving being a parent to my little boy. He keeps me very busy when I'm not at work but I still try to find time for cooking new recipes, reading and cross stitch.

 Mrs Prideaux 

I am very excited to be back at school after my maternity leave. I have been teaching for 8 years and I am thrilled to be teaching year one again! (My favourite year group!) I will be in school Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday every week! When I'm not in school my two young children keep me very busy and I also enjoy playing Netball and keeping fit and healthy!

We hope you enjoyed your Christmas holiday and Santa brought you everything you hoped for?! Hopefully you got plenty of rest and are ready for the new term! 

Our new topic this term is 'Rain Rain Go Away' we will be learning lots about weather and we will also be enjoying a mini topic all about Florence Nightingale! 

Our PE days are the same ( Monday's and Wednesday's), please make sure you have your PE kit in school EVERYDAY from the beginning of term! Also be reminded of our no earring policy. 

Hopefully you have done plenty of reading over the holiday - so please don't forget to change your reading book!
