Barley 2023 - 2024

Miss Peel


Welcome to Class Barley


"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." 

 Colossians 3:12 


We are a mixed Year 1 and Year 2 class. Our class teacher is Miss Peel and we are supported by Mrs Mahmood. Although we are a mixed year class, maths, PE, RE and computing are taught in single year groups. 

Key Information  

PE: Class Barley's PE days are on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. Your child is able to come to school on their PE day wearing their PE kit. 

Please also ensure your child does not wear any jewellery to school as they will not be allowed to take part in PE due to health and safety issues.  

Reading: Every child will read to an adult each week during their guided reading sessions. In addition, home reading books will be sent home with your child, which match the RWI book they are learning in class. These will be kept for the week to help develop both fluency and comprehension in their reading. If your child is on gold, white or lime book band, their books will be changed on a Monday and Friday. Please ensure that you sign and date your child's reading record. We ask that you listen to your child read daily, for at least 10 minutes, in order to build fluency and develop comprehension.

Library: Our library sessions take place on a Thursday (year 1) and Friday (year 2) morning. Please ensure that your child brings in their library book if they would like it to be changed.

Polite reminder: Please inform the school office if you change your email address so that we can update this on our system. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at and I will be happy to help. Alternatively, you can call the school office to book an appointment or visit.


November 2023

A fieldwork trip to Walverden Park

Year 1 and Year 2 enjoyed a fieldwork trip to Walverden Park in November. We explored human and physical features in our local environment and followed a map so we could find our way. We were lucky enough to squeeze in a quick visit to the park too. What a fantastic afternoon!

Year 2 Science 12th October 2023

Year 2 have been learning about the importance of keeping our minds and bodies healthy in science. We set up an investigation to explore the changes in our bodies after exercise. What a fun work out!




Design Technology Autumn 1 2023-24

Class Barley have been working hard to design, create and evaluate their own loom boxes this half term. We explored different techniques such as threading, weaving and plaiting before designing and creating our final product. The finished loom boxes will be displayed for you all to see in our end of year art gallery!
