Welcome to Year 1

We are really looking forward to welcoming you back into school in September. We have missed seeing your smiley faces but we have been so proud of how you have carried on your learning at home over the last few months. You are all Foljambe stars!

Meet your teacher
Mrs Stones

Hello! My name is Mrs Stones and I am your Class Teacher.

Hello. My name is Mrs Stones and I will be your new teacher when you return to school in September. I joined Foljambe just over a year ago and love being part of this school family.
I have two children, Jack and Matilda (Tilly for short). As a family we enjoy football, with our weekends being spent either playing for local teams or supporting Barnsley Football Club. We also have a pet rabbit called Harley, who likes to sneak into the house when no-one it looking!
In my spare time I like to read, one of my favourite authors is Milly Johnson and my favourite children’s authors are Roald Dahl and Julie Donaldson. I have recently taken up running as a way to keep fit and healthy.
I believe that all children have hidden talents and it’s my job as your teacher to nurture these talents so that you can reach for the stars!
I look forward to seeing you in September.

This year’s main topics:

Throughout the year we have many new learning experiences planned for you, including science topics that will involve learning about living things, forces and materials. We have an exciting start in the Autumn Term when we will be learning about Kings and Queens through our topic Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.

Class Information

Over the next year we are looking forward to a wide range of PE and Music sessions that will also be taught by experts from the Wickersley Partnership Trust. Please remember to bring your PE kits everyday with your names clearly labelled.

You will need to come to school in your uniform everyday and bring your own water bottle that will go home everyday. Our new school logo is now available on uniform from Pinders.
