Welcome to Blackbird!
We are a mixed Year 1&2 class and you will find us in the nearest of the 3 Key Stage 1 classrooms, previously known as Kingfisher.
Our teacher is Mrs Wellon and our teaching assistants are Mrs Knight and Miss Challinor.
In place of our usual 'Meet the Teacher' meetings, we have produced a video presentation with information about Blackbird class for September 2020:
If you have any questions, you can email Mrs Wellon at email@example.com
Here is our performance of the poem 'To Our Grown -ups' which was writen by Miss Challinor
Our PE days for Term 1 are Monday and Wednesday.
The children should come to school in their PE kit on those days. Their PE t-shirt should be the colour of their house team.
Blackbird will be doing Forest School on a Thursday during Term 1.
Children should come to school wearing their forest school clothes on that day. Don't forget your wellies!
