Welcome to the page of the glorious Goodall Class!

Goodall Class is a Year 1 class taught by Mrs Latter (Monday - Wednesday), Mrs Chapman (Wednesday - Friday) and Mrs Scott. We are located in the KS1 end of the school opposite Darwin Class and the children come into the classroom via the EYFS gate.

 

Being in Year One provides the children with the opportunity to build independence and develop confidence. The children find having their own desk with tray the most exciting part of being in Year One!

If you have any messages at the start of the school day, please contact the school office who will pass the message to class teachers or email Mrs Latter or Mrs Chapman.  Class teachers will also be available at the end of the school day to speak to.

At the start of the school year the children will begin their journey on the National Curriculum. We do Mathematics, English, Phonics and Handwriting every day and other 'topic' related subjects throughout the rest of the week.

 

Throughout the year, the children in Year One are provided with many different exciting opportunities to further develop their learning. We go on trips throughout the year too!


Like all classes in The Discovery School, our class was named after a famous scientist or inventor. In our case, this scientist was the world renowned Jane Goodall. Click on the image below to learn more about the namesake of our class and what she is famous for.

PHONICS SCREEN - The children will be taking the statutory Phonics Screening Test the week beginning 12th June.  Please endeavour to have children in school on time during this week.
