Voluntary Controlled Primary

Lowry Class

Welcome to Lowry Class

We are a Reception and Year 1 class in Woodhouses VC Primary. In class, our teacher is Mrs Mulligan and our TA is Miss Riggall. In Lowry class, we run two curriculums (Early Years and National Curriculum) side by side so that no child misses out on what they need to become brilliant learners. We focus our attention on play and believe that this is a vital way for children to learn through discovery and curiosity, with skills sprinkled on top! Our children enjoy continuous provision indoor and out, but also learning about their environment through good use of our area. 

If you need to get in touch, please either phone the office to arrange a telephone call, or email

Reading and Phonics in Lowry Class.

We are passionate about supporting and guiding our children to make those important building blocks for learning. A large part of their understanding, social communication and vocabulary comes from reading. In Lowry class, we send home decodable books which support the children's progress in their phonics journey, as well as a book of choice. 

Please scan this QR code to Padlet to find out about the books we suggest, some helpful websites and games to enhance their phonics. smiley

At Woodhouses, we use Little Wandle for phonics. Click on the link below to see how to support your child as they start their reading and writing journey.


Important Information

Phonics is completed daily for both Reception and Year 1. As it is at 9am, it is vital that children are in to make sure they don't miss any of these key building blocks to reading and writing. Weekly phonics sheets are sent home on a Friday with the new sounds and key words that the children have been working on. Year 1s will have spellings sent home from Mrs Killion in Stephenson where they go for phonics daily. They will be tested on these spellings on a Friday. 


Please ensure that all clothing is labelled with your child names. We have lots of jumpers and cardigans the same size and it become a little hard to work out who's belongs to who.
