The Westborough School

Welcome to class 1D

Your class teacher is

Miss Downes

We also have extra help from our Teaching Assistant

Johann Butler 

and our Learning Support Assistant

Caroline Berry.

We have P.E. on

Mondays and Thursdays

Your child must wear their PE kit to school on this day, as they are unable to change in class or the changing rooms. 

They are able to wear joggers, leggings or tights under their shorts on PE days, just in case the weather is not good. If they wear their jumper as usual they will be warm enough. 

Hello and welcome to year one!

This year has been very different but the children have bounced straight into the routine of school life and are having a wonderful time in their new classroom. We have been following the weekly topics and this week we will be looking at Art and Design creating lots of things in the classroom and outside. It has been such a long time since the children have been inside the classroom and because of that we are easing into the learning bit by bit and encouraging learning through play while I work with smaller groups to look at handwriting and number work. I look forward to seeing what the children can do.


At this time, I am unable to see you at the gate, however if you have any questions, queries or problems please email the school directly and I will get back to you as soon as I can. We have PE on Monday and Thursday so please make sure your child is wearing PE kit on these days. Please ensure everything is labelled with a clear name. (jumpers/bottles/coats/Lunch boxes) We only have limited space in year one for belongings due to the social distancing in place so please make sure your child brings a book bag that will fit within their tray. At this time backpacks should not be in school. The children are not allowed to bring things in from home!


Please make sure your child starts to bring a coat on colder days as we wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on playing outside. Reading books will be changed on Monday, please note you can comment on your child’s reading in their reading record, we will be using a sticker or stamp to indicate we have read with the children.
