Welcome to Class 1
In Class 1, Mrs Ward and Mrs Robson both teach in this class, Miss Surtees is the teaching assistant.
Here in Class 1 we have Reception children, we work hard toward achieving EYFS targets. We cover Literacy in the form of Read Write Inc, Mathematics, ICT skills, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Understanding of the World and Expressive Art and Design. We combine all of our learning into topics, beginning with All About Me when we are learning about our new school and learning environment. As the year goes on, we develop mini-topics based around children’s interests, to build upon our main topics to enhance the children’s learning and experiences.
As well as our lovely classroom environment, we spent a lot of time outdoors in our outside learning environment. The children have access to this area to encourage their learning to continue outside of the classroom and on a bigger scale. We do have some wellies and waterproofs but if you wish your child to bring their own in, they can stay in a carrier bag on their peg.
We have two Key Worker groups, Rainbows and Snowflakes. We go to these groups every morning when we come into school and before we go home on an afternoon. During our Key Worker time, we do registration, talk about the date and the weather and any special news or events that are going on.
