Miss Bradley's Class 

Teacher: Miss Bradley 

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Griffiths

Welcome to Shells class (Year 1 and 2)

Here you will find information on what we are learning about each term and will see photo's of our learning. Please use school diaries regularly as a way of communicating with me, but also remember that I am available to chat to each morning and afternoon at the classroom door!


Miss Bradley is the teacher in Shells class although Mrs Pollard teaches on a Wednesday. Mrs Griffiths and Mr Barco  are our classroom assistants. Shelldon the tortoise is our class pet. We are excited to be working together in Shells Class this year


Home learning is designed to enhance children’s learning in school allowing families to be involved and encourage discussions about our learning at home. This term our topic is ‘From Field to Fork’. A homework grid is attached to this letter, please aim to complete one homework of your choice each week. Spelling will also be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday. Initially spelling tests will be set up in an informal way to build children’s confidence.

If you have home reading books, you can check if they are in your child’s AR reading range here...
