Mrs Harry's Class 2020 - 2021

Mrs Harry

Year 1 | Hampton Primary School 

Welcome to our class page.

Welcome back to school for the second part of the Autumn term.  Although things are slightly different this term, I am confident we will have lots of fun in our learning adventures together.

Our topic this term will focus on the book The Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Ahelberg.  


As always, if you have any questions relating to any aspect of school life please do not hesitate to contact me. Please feel free talk to me at the end of the school day.

Thank you, Mrs Harry.


Another busy week of learning where we finished writing the story of Little Red Riding Hood and developed our skills in subtraction.  We learnt about the artist Paul Klee and created some work in his style by mixing colours to create tints.  We have recorded the wether all week monitor wind direction, temperature and rainfall.  Here are a few pictures.


Here are Jessie and Friends to understand interent safety.  If you click the picture below you acn watch this and discuss it with your child at home.




Week commencing Monday 16th November:


This week we will begin to look at the story of Hansel and Gretel as the final traditional tale found in the Jolly Postman.  We will be sequencing the story and then writing character descriptions.


We will be focusing on addition and subtraction and creating fact families.


This week we will continue to look at the seasonal changes.  We will be going on an Autumn walk around the school grounds to identify and observe some of the signs of the season. 


This week we will be looking at the features of towns and countryside.


This part of the term we will focus on ball skills and team building in our PE lessons.  Please make sure you have your warm PE kits on.

We will be learning to be as active as we can be everyday.


We will be discussing the importance of making the right decisions this week.


In art we will be learning about colour and looking at the artist Jackson Pollock.  We will take our art outside this week to create a collaborative piece of work.


  • Spellings 
  • Maths - Explore TTRS website - click the picture for a direct link (login details in the front of reading diary)
  • Writing - Sentence correction
  • Reading - please read with your child as much as possible.  The children are given several opportunites during the week to change their library books.  Please sign their reading diary to say that you have read together, even if you have read to them.



As always can we please remind parents that if you wish to provide a break time snack for your child it should be something healthy such as fruit.  If you would prefer your child to have toast then this can be ordered for the whole term either online or via the office. There is always fruit available if your child forgets their snack. The children can bring in their own water bottle daily which must only have water (not juice) in. 


PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon during this part of the term.  Please ensure that during this term the children come to school in their PE kit on these days.  I would suggest they wear their winter PE kit of tracksuit bottoms and black sweatshirt with their yellow PE t-shirt underneath as these sessions will be outside as much as possible.

Kit: Pumps or Trainers, black track suit bottoms or shorts (weather dependent), yellow school PE t-shirt and black jumper.

Reading and Phonics:

We will begin phonics sessions this week from Wednesday.  

The children are assessed regularly to ensure they are in the correct phonics grouping and that their reading level is in line with their phonics development. It would be lovely for you to spend time reading to your child and having discussions about the book you have read.  

Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning.  Please feel free to record their reading in their planner.  You may wish to write a comment but please do not feel that you have to.

If you wish to send me a message then please feel free to write it in your child's planner but please ask him/her to pass it to me as I do not always check their planners every day.

Homework: (This will begin week commencing 14/9)

Your child will have a grammar booklet to complete alongside a weekly spelling list. 


Some dates for your diary.
