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 Jarvis. 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 woodland area. Pop back weekly to find out what we have been up to! laugh


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

It was lovely to welcome our class back in and everyone was raring to go! We have learned lots of new sounds this week and are having a go at our writing and improving our counting. We started our new topic called Rememberance, this week, by having a look at a famous soldier, Walter Tull. The children were fantastic and respectful during our 2 min silence on Wednesday, when our brass teacher Mr Wilson, played the last post. We have been looking at our seasons and why the leaves change colours. We have also noticed that our tree in school has gone from bright yellow leaves, to having none at all and thought of many reasons and questions around this. 


We look forward to another week of super learning next week. 


Please can we have back any underwear that we have given to children who have had accidents. We do not have any girls  underwear left!

Please can you make sure that jumpers and cardigans are clearly marked. We have a few without names left behind. 

Thank you laugh

We have had a brilliant week this week. It has been so lovely to see how independent our new children are, with lots of them even coming round without grown ups! Well done! This week we have started having a look at letters and sounds in reception. We have learned s, a, t and p. We have been mark making the early stages of these sounds, looking and listening for them and even having a hunt for a letter or a word. Reception have also been working on the start of Power Maths, and have been learning about the Threeness of Three. They have been making, counting, writing and creating 3 in many different ways.

Year 1 have blown us away this week, taking everything in their stride. They too have started their journey in Power Maths. It has been lovely to teach them as a year group and allows them to share their ideas with their friends. We've been working on numbers to 10 through counting, different representations and sorting. In Science, the Year 1s have been working with Mrs Thompson, learning about plants and even growing their own beans! On Friday, we had a go at creating our own abstract art after making a picture, photographing it and then sticking it down to match the photo. 

What an action packed week we've had! 

Next week we hope to have some photos up when we have all our permissions back from our parents, to share some of our wonderful moments with you. 

P.S. Teach your Monster to Read app is free until Tues 22nd  (usually £5) and is one we use in class! 


WK: 7/9/20

What a lovely start back for all our children across school, and a super welcome to our new children in Reception. It has been so nice for our children to have a gentle start to school life, making friends in small groups and with our Year 1s, who are working hard at being good role models. This week we have been learning about each other and finding out what things we enjoy doing in class. We can't wait for next week when our am and pm group come together and Lowry can really get underway! 

Please can all children in Lowry (Y1 and Reception),  bring in a pair of wellies that can be left in class, so that we can carry out our learning in our woodland area. 

Reception parents, if you have not already done so, please could you send back all your contact details and the Tapestry sheet so that we can get you linked up to view your child's learning.
