Class 1 Information

At Blacko, we aim to provide the highest quality care and education for all our children thereby giving them a strong foundation for their future learning. It is our intent that the children who enter our EYFS develop physically, verbally, cognitively and emotionally whilst embedding a positive attitude to school and learning. We create a safe and happy environment with motivating and enjoyable learning experiences that enable children to become confident and independent. We value the individual child and work alongside parents and others to meet their needs and help every child to reach their full potential.




This year we are continuing with our ‘Pick and Mix’ homework for your child in Class 1. We understand that homework is a tricky area to get the balance right and we have decided to continue with this method to hopefully provide something to suit everybody individually.
Each term your child will receive a ‘Pick and Mix’ homework sheet on Tapestry which is for the whole term; you can record your child’s work in their Home Learning book. The activities are colour coded; Red Boxes need to be completed regularly each week. Yellow Boxes must be done at some point during the term and returned to school by the due date. Finally there are Green Box activities which are optional challenges linked to activities and topics within school - these do not have to be done, but if you have time and want to push yourself, that would be super! When your child has completed has activity please upload a picture onto Tapestry.
