Footprints - Miss Hayhurst and Mrs Pollard's Class
Welcome to Footprints class page
The class will be taught by Mrs Pollard (Monday, Tuesday) and Miss Hayhurst (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday). Miss Francey will be Footprints’ teaching assistant. Mrs Sloper will also take Footprints for RE for an hour on Tuesday.
We have many exciting topics for the half term ahead which we hope will enthuse and motivate the children. Please see our class topic web (attached below) for more details.
Here are a few useful things to know for this term:-
PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Full PE kits should be in school at all time please.
Homework each week will be reading and times tables as well as a Maths and English challenge to complete. A home learning Maths/English challenge will be set on Tuesday to be handed in on the following Monday.
Calendar dates can be found under ‘Calendar’ on the school website.
As you may already know, we aim to be on the playground at the end of each day but if you need to get a message to us diaries are the best way for non-urgent contact such as a change in pick-up arrangements, meeting request or a minor injury notice! We will encourage the children to put diaries on our staff desk, if there is a message, so please let them know you have written in their diary.
We are really looking forward to this term with plenty of exciting topics ahead. Thank you for your continued support.
Miss Hayhurst Mrs Pollard

If you have a little bit of time to spare at the end of the day, we really need your help. Research shows that children who read every day to an adult, progress much more quickly than those who do not have this opportunity. Whilst we would love to spend 15 minutes each day with every member of the school, simple maths shows that this is just not possible.
As well as this, some children, despite being just as intelligent as their peers , have dyslexic tendencies making learning to read and spell a real challenge. These children need much more practice than the average learner.
If you are able to come into school 15 minutes early at the end of the day to listen to children read, your help would be invaluable. No special training or skills are needed ,just an encouraging manner and enthusiasm.
Please speak to your child’s class teacher or TA and arrange to come in for any afternoon that suits you. If you would like to chat about this before committing yourself to a time, please come in and see me in school on a Monday.
