Class information


Staff in Class 1 are:

Mrs Massie (Class Teacher) & Miss Berry (Teaching Assistant)

General information about Class 1:  

  • The children’s communication books are an important way for parents and teachers to communicate. Please feel free to right any questions, concerns or information in there and I will respond to you as quickly as possible. Also let us know of any special after school arrangements. Additionally communication books are used to tell us if your child needs a new reading book.  These books are checked daily so your child should always have an up to date reading book. 
  • Homework logs will be sent home each Friday with a task to complete. These should be returned on or before the following Wednesday.
  • Please ensure that your child has a full P.E. kit in school every day.
  • Reading books may be changed on any day. Your child may also take home a story book from the class library for you to read to them.


Please don't hesitate in contacting me via my school email address if you have any further queries.

 The Curriculum

At Brill School, English, maths and core skills are taught through focused daily lessons; usually in the morning. But for other lessons we have in recent year moved away from narrow subject based teaching and have developed a curriculum that is imaginative, child focused and cross curricular.

Class 1’s thematic topic units for this year are:




Main focus

Autumn 1



Autumn 2

Happy Ever After 


Spring 1



Spring 2

 Light up the World


Summer 1

 Going Places
