Class F

Welcome to Class F!

We are the youngest Foundation Stage children at Blackbrook Community Primary School. Our teachers are Mrs Rendell and Mrs Archibald. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Mills, Mrs Green and Mrs Wood.


On this page you can find out what we are learning about and find some useful information to help your child with their learning.

The EYFS team are thinking of each of you and hoping you are all well and happy.  We appreciate that it is not easy keeping children busy in a confined space.  We have added ideas for home learning below but they are all suggestions and we do not expect anyone to complete them all; we are just giving you ideas to help if you need them.  We’d love to see anything you are doing on tapestry or in your sharing books.  If you haven't already activated your tapestry account then we have resent the activation email (you may need to look in your spam folder for this). Look after each other during this difficult time.  We hope to see you soon.  Love, Mrs Rendell, Mrs Archibald, Mrs Mills, Mrs Wood and Mrs Green xxx

RWI speed sound sessions

Daily virtual lessons for children

From Monday 23rd March we’re scheduling Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons on Facebook and YouTube for children to watch at home.

We will release three short Speed Sound lessons with one of our trainers every day for the next two weeks. The films will only be available at the times below:

  • Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am and again at 12.30 pm
  • Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm
  • Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1.30 pm

Please note: the films are streamed live and won’t be available at other times.

We’re also releasing a film of a poem for Reception and Year 1 children to join in with at 2.00 pm every day. The poems will be available on YouTube to watch again and again.

A great opportunity for children to learn these by heart!


Autumn term fun!

Winter Welly walks

We have been exploring the outdoors and keeping fit by walking as well as learning about the world around us - talking about nature, seasonal changes and the texture of mud, as well as spending time socialising with our friends.


Hand strengthening activities


A really useful document entitled 'What to expect, when?' had be released by 4Children explaining the stages of development children go through.  We think it is a super document as it gives useful information about ways of supporting your child's development across the 7 areas of learning as well as helpful things to look out for. It links to what we assess and plan for in class and so it may be a helpful starter for sharing those 'magic moment'. Here is a link to the page if you wish to download it:
