Welcome to Class Donaldson

Our adults in class are:

Miss Raynor - Class Teacher

Mrs Riordan - Teaching Assistant 

Mrs Charlesworth - Teaching Assistant


The children are settling in FS2 lovely as we begin our learning journey here at Brierley C.E. Primary School. All children are developing their communication skills and forming positive friendship bonds to build an excellent learning community. 

We are looking forward to learning all about numbers in maths, writing labels and lists in English, becoming history detectives and scientists as well as so much more! Let's make this year, a year to discover and grow!

Baseline Assessments

During the first six weeks of children being in reception class baseline assessments are undertaken.

Please see the link below to a parents guide published by the government

Read Write Inc phonics

At Brierley we follow the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc scheme to deliver phonics. 

Please see the links below to some videos for parents explaining how phonics and early reading is taught and how you can support your child at home.
