Welcome to Class 1
Our school day starts when the children arrive between 8:30 and 8:50 am. During this time the children complete their morning activities; either writing their name or a simple sentence then they choose what they would like for dinner. During the morning the children take part in several activities e.g. Wake and Shake, Read Write Inc (Phonics Programme), to Maths activities. During the afternoon they have assemblies and Literacy activities. Our day ends at 3:15 where you can collect your child from the classroom door.
We focus on a free flow approach where the children are encouraged to try the several activities planned on the tables. These activities link to the topic we are looking at. They get progressively harder as the year progresses and we try to ensure a width breadth of learning is taking place. This ranges from Role Play, Expressive Arts, Physical Development to more focused adult learning in Maths and Literacy.
We try to do our PE lessons on a Tuesday afternoon but we ask that you keep your child's PE kit in school all week in case this changes or we get more opportunity during the week for extra lessons.
We welcome any parents that would like to come in and look at their child's learning at any point during the year. We do hold Open Phonics where you are welcome to come and look at how your child learns the phonemes and applies them.
Welcome to Class One.
This Autumn Term we are going to be focusing on My Family and I. Our overall topic is going to be History so we are going to be looking at the family history of the children in the class. The children will have chance to explore what it was like for their parents and grandparents to grow up and what sort of things they played with. We will also explore where they went to school and how it is different to school life now.
The children are very excited to be in school and we can't wait to find out more!
