Learning in Class MB

Class MB’s learning this half term so far has included reading, making clay mendhi patterns, writing letters in magic foam and playing shape games with each other.

Class MB’s displays reflect the learning from half term 1.

Class MB have been very busy last half term learning about Autumn, fairy tales, counting, Harvest and The Creation. Look at all their wonderful learning on display in the classroom.

Biscuits and Sandwiches in Class MB


Welcome to Class MB (Reception Class) -the place where young minds discover and learn!


We hope your child will be very happy in our class. We always have our door open and will talk to you about any issues that are of concern. We realise at such a young age, coming to Brierley School is a big step in your children’s lives and we endeavour to teach them a rich EYFS curriculum where respect, politeness, kindness and enjoyment is fostered.

We will teach them our Christian Values so they go through school knowing we are all part of God’s loving family.

Our staff include Mrs Biggs (Class teacher) and Mrs Charlesworth and Miss Bretton (Support staff). During the week Mrs Biggs has Deputy Head commitments and Mrs White (Cover teacher) will teach the class.

Your children are settling into school really well and are getting into a routine, but this does take some time. You can help by guiding them to select their lunchtime dinner choice and any morning jobs we have set up.

These will start next week, where children will need to find their chair and begin reading at their tables in class. For this they will need to bring their reading folders everyday.

It would also help us if during the course of the year your child is encouraged to get themselves dressed/undressed. This will help them become independent during PE sessions. Please can you make sure your child’s clothing is labelled.

Here are a few photos of our first few days in school.
