Welcome to Forest Class. If you are starting in Forest Class in September, you might find more useful information on this part of the website (Parents tab/Reception 2020) where you can meet the teachers who will be working with your child and learn more about daily life in Reception. Feel free to explore this page and enjoy some of the poems and our new story, which are currently being used by the children in Reception at the moment.

Hello messages and videos from Mrs Large and Mr Levett who will be your Year 1 teachers in September when you become Herefordshire 1:


Hello Herefordshire!


My name is Mrs Large and I’m really looking forward to being your new Year 1 teacher along with Mr Levett.  I have been teaching in Primary and Special Education for over 25 years (I can’t believe it’s that long!) and I really enjoy the fun, variety and excitement of being a Primary Teacher.  It will be wonderful getting to know all of your individual personalities and skills but also building a special caring and fun team bond with you all too. I am particularly looking forward to seeing how much your reading, drawing, writing and maths will develop in Year 1.


I have 3 supposedly grown up teenage children (all of whom came to Southborough Primary School), a dog and a cat! I love going to watch international gymnastics competitions and ballet (as that is what my twin sons do) and also really enjoy art, music, church and the theatre generally too.  I have enjoyed making more cakes at home since March and sharing them with my family – have you helped make any yummy cakes?


In Year 1 we’ll get to do lots of exciting things together – we will look at amazing stories, learn how to write in more detail, learn about important events from the past, how to use and make maps and other important information about the world, how to create beautiful artworks using different materials and so much more!  I am very excited to ring you all next week so I can get to hear about the things you have been doing and so we can also find out a bit more about each other. I look forward to speaking to you soon!

Hello Herefordshire class. I’m really looking forward to being your teacher in September. I just thought I’d tell you a little bit about myself. I’ve been teaching for 16 years and absolutely love sport!  This has been a big part of my life and in particular running. I hope that you all have a wonderful summer break.  I’m looking forward to doing some fishing, eating my favourite ice cream (mint choc chip) and playing football with my 8 year old son. 


See you all in September. 


Mr Levett
