Beckingham Primary School

Class 1

Welcome to Class One!

We are a mixed Year One and Two class and our class is looked after by Mrs Day (Monday-Wednesday) and Mrs Ward (Thursday-Friday) with Mrs James, Mrs Willey and Mrs Markham supporting. 

Helpful Information


Each week, the children have two PE sessions, one on Wednesday with Mrs Day and another on Thursday with Doncaster Rovers' coaches. Please ensure that children are in school dressed in their PE kits on these days. It would be incredibly helpful if the children have outside shoes on with this, should we need to be outside, we will be on the playground or field. 


The expectation across school is that children practice their spellings and phonics alongside their daily reading as homework. All children are encouraged to read at least three times a week at home. Spellings are fastened into planners and have practice games and sessions linked on Spelling Shed. Phonics consolidation can also be found here too. A log on is provided for your child - please see their planner for this.


Purple Mash is a safe, secure platform where your child can use ICT to enhance learning in all areas of the curriculum.  Again, a log on is provided in your child's planner.


Fruit snack is available daily in school and milk from age five is available from Cool Milk at a subsidised cost. Cool Milk can be accessed here: 


Class rewards, success and reminder messages will be shared via Class Dojo. If you require support in setting this app up, please see a member of the Class One team.
