Welcome to Red Class

Everyday Heroes

This half term Green class are looking at ‘Everyday Heroes’. We will be focusing on our local community and those that help us in our everyday lives.
We would love to invite you into school to talk to our children about your profession/role in our community, at a time that would be convenient, to give children the opportunity to ask questions to acquire knowledge about the various roles and responsibilities in our community and how they all help us. It doesn’t have to stop there, we would also love to welcome Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, family members if you know of anyone who would like to pay us a visit. We aim to celebrate diversity in the world of work and how all roles are equally as important.
If you would be interested in coming in to speak to us then please drop us an email or pop in and speak to a member of staff.

Welcome to Red Class!

We are a unique, wonderful and hard-working group in Red class. The class teachers are Mrs Harper-Jones (Monday -Thursday) and Mrs Derrer (Friday). Our TA this year is Mrs Colin-Stokes

We celebrate individuality and differences and work together to achieve our ambitious goals!

We love learning in a warm, stimulating and caring environment and always make sure that we try our best each and every day and with everything that we do.

Red Overview 2023-24

Here we will let you know what’s coming up in Red.

PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays – children should come to school in PE kit on these days. On Fridays, we have PE with Mr Bennett through the sports partnership.

Red Class spellings

In Red class, children are given new words to learn every Friday. They should bring home a sheet with the words on and they will also be posted every Friday. They are tested on the words the following Friday and they will be tested out of the order which they bring them home!

We use the No Nonsense strategy to teach spellings.

The No Nonsense Spelling Programme offers an accessible, clear progression in the teaching of spelling. The focus of the programme is on the comprehensive teaching of spelling, which embraces knowledge of spelling conventions – patterns and rules; but integral to the teaching is the opportunity to promote the learning of spellings, including statutory words, common exceptions and personal spellings.

At school, children will be practising their spelling regularly in a variety of different ways as we follow the No Nonsense Spelling scheme. They will be encouraged to be independently checking and improving their own spelling and partners will be able to help each other.

We know that some children are naturally ‘good spellers’ and others find it more difficult to learn the patterns. Children are also very good at learning words for spelling tests and not using them in their writing. If your child has a set of words which you think they know, ask them to write the word in a good sentence. There are games you can play and there are some ideas below.

How can school and families support the children with their spelling?

At home, please practise your spellings for five to ten minutes every night – try to make this fun by playing games, using art materials, getting messy, setting up competitions with each other or by using the internet!


In Red class, we learn our spellings on a two year rolling programme.


Statutory word list -The National Curriculum in England provides a word list for Year 3 and Year 4 children of words that are often misspelt. Children will be taught to spell these words at school.
