Leigh Primary School

Turtle Class (Yr 1/2)

Welcome to Turtle Class! 

We are very excited to get to know you and your children. Below you will find information which will guide you through your child’s first term in Turtle Class.



Class Teachers: Mrs Prockter (Monday and Tuesday)

                               Miss Batley (Wednesday morning, Thursday and Friday)

Class Teaching Assistant: Mrs Baldock

Class Learning Support Assistant: Miss Van Der Poll


Children can enter the classroom from 8:30 via the back playground. We encourage the children to put away their own belongings. Children will join the rest of the school for break time at 10:25/30 until 10:45. The children can be collected from the back playground at 15:10. 


Each day the children will require their bag with their snack, drink and lunchbox if they are having packed lunch. When the children begin taking home books they will need to bring their reading pack each day as well. Please ensure all of your child's belongings are clearly named. PE kit is no longer required in school as it is worn on a Tuesday and Thursday as their school uniform.  If for any reason this changes, we will contact you via the Google Platform and school email. If you feel there is the possibility of your child having an accident, you may provide spare clothes to be kept in the classroom in a named carrier bag.

Y2 only may bring their own pencil case with pencils, a rubber and sharpener if they would like to. PLEASE NOTE: Biros, gel pens and other ink based implements for writing are not permitted.


If your child required medication a form must be completed at the school office so the school has clear direction on how and when to administer. Please hand any medication directly to a member of staff rather than your child so we can store it correctly and securely. We are more than happy to help if your child needs medication given for a short period such as antibiotics - again we just need a form completed and the medication.


All information on your child's curriculum and letters can be found on the Google Classroom Platform. You will receive a letter regarding how the platform works at the beginning of term. For further user support please see your child's class teacher who will be happy to help you.

Forest School

Please ensure that your child brings in warm clothes and are appropriately dressed for the weather that day. Children MUST have a pair of wellies in school to wear. Please do not provide them with clothing that you are unhappy to get muddy or dirty. Forest school is all about getting muddy!

A Final Note from the Turtle Class team

We hope your child has the most enjoyable year but if there is ever a concern with their social or academic needs please do not hesitate to contact the school through the office and use 'FAO - Turtle Class' in the subject bar. We are of course available to talk in the morning and afternoons during drop off and pick up times too.
