Class 1 (Mr Smits and Ms Parkins)

Welcome to Class 1!


Watch this space! We will very soon be filling this page with things we’ve done and what we are planning to do. We will also create a link to your spelling words.


Update 3-10-18:


So far this term, we have been working on rhyming words and writing short sentences with rhyming words at the end of our sentence. The children have corrected jumbled sentences and added extra descriptions to them. We have read a lot of books as well!


We are focusing on making sense of the numbers. We use the values of 10s and 1s to make sense of more difficult problems including ordering, sequencing and addition.


Our spellings lists will be updated from next week and they will become a bit harder for those who are able to step up to it. We will keep this page updated with new spelling lists.

Lexia at home

At Borrowdale School your child may be using a programme called Lexia Reading Core 5 which they use on our ipads. This programme helps the children with their reading and spelling skills. The children enjoy playing the educational games and we have seen a real improvement in their reading and spelling ability from using this programme. Your child is also able to access this from home. 


Your child can use Lexia through the internet by going to the following website


When asked for your teacher's email, please input


Your child then needs to use the login they use for school. 


You can also download the Lexia App on iPad or Android tablets by searching for ‘Lexia Reading Core5 UK’.
