Welcome to Class 1
Class 1 is a Nursery and Reception mixed class. We learn through a play-based curriculum, with adult led phonics, maths and topic sessions each day.
Parents and carers can view regular updates and photos to show the current learning via the Tapestry Learning Journal app. A login to the app will be provided when your child enrols at Whitemoor.
Children need to bring in the following each day:
- Water bottle
- Book Bag
- A rucksack with spare clothes (nursery children)
- A hat and sun cream (in Spring and Summer)
We ask that all children are provided with the following to keep in school:
- PE Kit (PE is on a Monday)
- Wellington Boots - we like to spend lots of time outdoors and use the field even in wet weather.
Please get in touch with any of the class 1 team if you have any questions, or are unable to access Tapestry.

Inspiring a love for reading
In Class 1 we read stories as a class twice a day, and during child-led play the children have access to our well-resourced and comfortable book corner. The book corner is themed to the topic each term, as well as having well-loved favourite stories all year round.
All children are provided with a book bag and have the opportunity to visit the school library each week to choose a story to take home to share with an adult at home.
Children in reception will bring home a book each week linked to their reading level.
