Helsinki (Year 1)

Welcome to the Helsinki Class Page!

Hello and welcome to our class page! 

Our class teacher is Mrs Hamilton and  and our teaching assistant's name is Mrs O'Jenkins. Mrs. Celino, Miss Walter and Mrs Smith work in our classroom and they help the London children while 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 Tuesday and Wednesday. Don't forget your yellow/white t-shirt, shorts/ tracksuit bottoms and trainers/ plimsolls on these days.


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.


Home learning is no longer needs to be done in the blue book and you can submit home learning via Class Dojo by posting pictures, videos, writing and drawing on the child's profile.
