I am Mrs Trainor the class teacher.  

I am delighted to welcome you and your child to Year One at Wakefield Methodist (VC) Junior, Infant and Nursery School. We are very lucky in Year One as we are supported by Mrs Browster. 

We care for and nurture the youngest children in Key Stage One to provide a smooth transition from Foundation Stage to working within the National Curriculum.   We hope to develop close relationships with parents to ensure that we all make a smooth, secure and joyful start to Key Stage One.  We aim to provide a warm and friendly atmosphere where children’s enthusiasm for learning is ignited. The classroom is set up with similar provision to the Foundation Stage with areas of continuous provision linked to our learning.  The children can engage with both teacher lead and pupil inspired learning.


Mrs Browster has written the following poem.

In our school we believe,
Each child is a rising star.We show them how they can achieveand how they can go far.We give them tools to shape their mind,To learn to be resilient.We show them the importance of being kindand that everyone can be brilliantThey learn respect, both earned and givenand how we are all connected.How to forgive and be forgivenand behaviour that is expectedWe show them how to open their heart,through kindness and compassion.How everyone must play their part,in any type of fashionWe hope that when the leave our schooland move on to higher learningThat we have provided all the fuel,
to complete their lifelong journey
