Ahlberg (Reception/ Year 1)

Welcome to Ahlberg Class Page.



Our classes are named after authors.

Our class is named after Janet and Allan Ahlberg.



Have you read any of their books?



You will find lots of these books in our class library.

 Perhaps you could tell us if you have any of these books at home?




Welcome to the Autumn Term


Home Learning for children who are self-isolating.


If your child is self-isolating, please scroll down to the ‘Home Learning’ stars. This is where we will be putting work relating to our activities in school as well as ‘extra’ activities and ideas that your child can do to help their learning whilst they are away from school. 


Even if your child is not self-isolating, you may like to use activities at any time if you would like to practise things with your child. 


If your child is in Year 1 and self isolating please click on the star below which will take you to some Year 1 activities.

                  Wellbeing Page


Remember to look at the Wellbeing page (found under the 'Children' tab on the website or click on the link) which may be of use with explanations and help at this tricky time. 

If you feel like doing some PE at home, have a look at these ideas - use the 2nd sheet to record what you do and challenge yourself to improve each time.


Remember to look on the Forest School webpage for forest school type activities you can do in your home and garden.

Lots of them are 'off screen' ideas.

Due to the current situation, we are unable to have parents in school so please remember you can contact us through this email address: 

Always remember to put your class name (Ahlberg or Donaldson) in the subject box so we will be able to find it easily. We aim to check this once a week. If it is an urgent message/enquiry, please telephone the school office.
