Class 1 Curriculum Information

Welcome to Class One 

Reception - Mrs Allen and Mrs Carlile

In Class 1 we really value the relationships we form with parents and work hard to ensure our children have a happy and secure start to school. We aim to provide the very best start to primary schooling.

We enjoy learning by investigating the world around us. We encourage and support each child’s growing independence as well as nurture lifelong learning. Children are given the opportunity to explore their surroundings through creative and independent learning experiences.

One of our priorities in Class 1 is the teaching of Phonics, daily, to aid the children’s learning. We hold a Parents' Information Evening early in the Autumn term which includes a focus on Phonics so that parents can help their child at home.

This week class 1 have been busy learning to write sentences. We practiced the sentence; ‘This is a rocket.’ By the end of the week the class were able to think of their own sentences to write. E.g. This is a moon. This is a planet. We say our sentence first, then add some actions, then we count  how many words there are. Finally we write a dot for each word and write one word at a time per dot, using our sounding out skills.  I am really impressed to see sentences with finger spaces and full stops!

We have continued with our space topic and have made some amazing rockets out of junk.
In our number work this week we have been learning to add two numbers together and use the phrase ‘I know I have…’ to count on from the biggest number.

This week Class 1 have been rehearsing for the Christmas play, and preparing for Christmas in our North Pole work station.

They have made some beautiful salt-dough tree decorations.

They have also enjoyed decorating our outside area by making their own Christmas tree.

Wow, what a busy week preparing for Squeak’s Birthday party. Class 1 have been busy preparing all the food; making jelly, decorating biscuits, baking the birthday cake,  and making their own sandwiches.

The children have been really engaged drawing pictures for Squeak, making the tablecloth and decorations, making party hats and planning party games.  

Parents, I think you could safely say your children are expert party planners and they now have all the skills to organise their own party.
