Hello and welcome to our class page! 

Our class teacher is Miss Price and our teaching assistant's name is Mrs O'Jenkins. Mrs Russell and Mrs Winkworth work in our classroom and they help the London children when they are in the mainstream environment, as well as helping them when they are in their base class. We have lots of fun in Helsinki class, and like to make learning as fun as possible!

Important information


PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Don't forget your yellow t-shirt, shorts/ tracksuit bottoms and trainers/ plimsolls on these days.


Home learning books come out every Friday.  Please make sure they are returned by Wednesday so they have time to be marked!


Reading diaries and the children's levelled reading books will come home with the children everyday and the children need to read five times a week. The children's books will be changed once a week, with one group everyday.


Attached is the home learning grids for Spring 2. The first one is for the children who are just in Helsinki Class and the second one is for children who are in Helsinki Class and London Class.
