Welcome to Nightingale Class!  
Miss Randall: Y1 Class Teacher & DT Leader
MissRandall Miss Randall trained for four years in Early Years education and has been teaching Year 1 at Wyton on the Hill for several years. Miss Randall loves painting, drawing and her very cuddly kittens. Her fantastic artwork can be seen in many of the KS1 displays and her phonics lessons are so brilliant that everyone wants to join in!
Miss Gowler: Y1 Teaching Assistant
Miss Gowler started as a Reception Teaching Assistant and has been a fantastic addition to the Infant Team. Miss Gowler’s favourite things are sleeping and chocolate cake. She does not like any creepy crawlies especially worms, which we found out when we were planting our seeds!

All of our classes are named after people who have shown the 7Rs and worked hard to be the best they can be. Nightingale Class is named after Florence Nightingale.

Florence Nightingale was a nurse in the Crimean war, where she and many other nurses saved the lives of many soldiers. She had a major impact on the running of hospitals and helped create a clean environment to be cared for in. She trained nurses in how to keep hospitals a safe and clean environment to help the sick get better and was the founder of modern nursing.

Nightingale Class is taught by Miss Randall and is supported by Miss Gowler.

  • We encourage the children to keep their PE kits in school in a suitable named bag all week and take them home for washing in Fridays in case we need to change the day we have PE due to inclement weather or in case we have the opportunity to put in an additional session of PE.
  • We try to do outdoor PE in all weathers, so your children are welcome to bring in additional layers to wear during the winter season, should they need to.
  • It is really important that all PE kit is labelled to ensure it does not become lost.

    Home Learning in Nightingale Class
    To ensure that our children continue with the development of their reading skills, please encourage your son / daughter to enjoy daily reading practice for at least 20 minutes each day.
    Each week children will take home their Phonics and Spelling home learning book and their Maths home learning book. In these books there will be activities for your child to do based on the learning we have done that week. Both of these home leaning books are due back in to school on a Wednesday. Phonics and Spelling will be sent home on a Thursday and Maths on a Friday.
