Yr1- Panther

Panther Class 2023-24



In Panther Class we are Great Friends, Architects, Risk Takers, Adventurers, Explorers, Investigators, Mathematicians and Artists!

A little bit about the adults in Panther class:


We are very lucky to have two experienced teachers sharing Panther Class, and an experienced TA every morning! Miss Rowley, our Year 1 HLTA, will be working with both Year 1 classes each afternoon and Mrs Bradford will also be our Reading Assistant!

A note from Mrs Silbereis (every other Wednesday, Thursdays and Fridays)

Hello! I've been teaching at Barley Close for over fifteen years, so I've had the privilege to get to know many of our lovely families really well! It's a lovely school and I'm looking forward to another year of exciting experiences!


Having had my own two children since I started at Barley Close, I now understand how a parent feels entrusting their child to someone else 5 days a week! We work really hard at Barley Close to involve the children's individual interests, skills and needs in every lesson, to make learning fun and to ensure they enjoy coming to school. 


When I'm not at school, I really enjoy spending time with my family. We love picnics, steam railways and beach walks especially! We often visit Cornwall and I love exploring new places too. We enjoy local walks with our dog and my favourite time of year for these walks is Autumn with its crunchy leaves and fresh air! 


I am really looking forward to getting to know your children this year. Please do feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns, or if you'd like any more information!
