Welcome to the Goldfinch Class

Hello Goldfinches!


Welcome to you all - I will be your class teacher (Miss Graney) and I am supported in class by Mrs Annall and sometimes Miss Gilliat. I will be working very closely with Mrs Ashton (Robins Class Teacher) in order to deliver a broad and exciting curriculum, from EYFS through to Year 2. 


What to bring to school:

All student should have a book-bag/ bag. You may also bring a water bottle, sun hat and sun cream. In the Winter months, please also bring wellie boots and an umbrella. Show-and-tell will be on Thursdays.


Reading books:

Over the next couple of weeks, I will carry out reading assessments to ensure your child is given the correct level book. These will be given out within the next couple of weeks.  RWI books will be changed on Mondays and normal reading and Library books will be changed on Fridays. Feel free to read ANY book your child is interested in as this promotes a healthy attitude towards learning.



PE will take place on Mondays and Thursdays.



Homework will be set in a 3x3 grid. The 8 different options will be suitable for you to do independently or with an adult. Homework can be brought in as and when it is completed.


Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Goldfinch Bookworms

Simply by reading regularly the children can gain points towards the Bookworm awards of Bronze, Silver and Gold. All they need to do is read to a grown up at home to receive a signature in their books, these then build up to the number required for each award. When they have enough points they will be given their certificate in our Celebration Assembly and also be able to place their own bookworm on the special Bookworm notice board.


Goldfinch Times Tables Challenge

The year 2 Goldfinches are trying to learn and practise their 2,5, 10 and 3 times tables at home to use regularly in school.

The year 1 Goldfinches will be encouraged to count in 2s 5s and 10s, knowing their 2 times table by the time they finish Year 1 .


Goldfinch Rock Stars

The children can use their knowledge of the times tables they are learning to become 'Rock Stars'. They can do this by using the Rock Star times tables website or app on you mobile phone. They can then take their place on the Rock Star leader board in school.
