Forest & Sandridge For Parents

Apple Class

In Apple class our teacher is Miss Gale. We are really lucky to have three teaching assistants working with us, alongside Cherry class. These are Miss Davies, Mrs Jackson and Miss Byrant. We have a very exciting year planned ahead!

Class Teachers

Miss Lucy Gale Teacher
Miss Morwenna Davies Teaching Assistant
Mrs Alyssa Jackson Teaching Assistant
Miss Sarah Bryant Teaching Assistant

This term we will be getting to know each other, establish routines and get to know the classroom and school. Our theme is called ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ which is all about nursery rhymes! We will share our favourite nursery rhymes, learn some more unusual ones and have a go at making up our own.


Books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday. : )

Outdoor Learning:

Apple Class will have outdoor learning on a Thursday afternoon with Mrs Bacon. We will let you know by either dojo or a text message if your child needs to bring any extra clothes for these sessions. Please ensure your child always has wellies in school for these sessions and a warm coat as sometimes we do get a little bit muddy.


We will be having our PE lesson on a Tuesday morning. Children need to have their PE kit in school and clearly labelled. It would be really helpful if you could practice getting changed independently as much as possible at home. This term we will be doing PE inside, we will let you know when outdoor kit is needed.

Balance bikes

Apple class will be having a balance bike lesson also on a Tuesday morning. For these, children will change into their trainers. Helmets are provided for the session.

Home learning

Within the next few weeks your child will come home with reading books. Please can you read as much as possible at home and record it in the reading record. We will also be sending home some phonics activities for you to have a go at. Children will be given a home learning folder with some activity ideas related to our theme.

WOW slips

Please record any ‘Wow’ moments from home on the wow slips and send them into school for us to share with the class. These should not be used weekly, they are for really special moments/achievements which make you go ‘wow’! If you need any more wow slips please ask.
