Class 1 Curriculum Information

Welcome to Class One 

Reception - Mrs Allen

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 had another busy week.

They have been learning to use all the sounds they have learnt so far to read and write words such as dog, pan, in, it, mad, sat.

They have been practicing how to hold a pencil correctly and have been learning to write their name, with chalk, with paint brushes  and water, felt tips and pencils.  They have started to write their name as they come into class as part of the registering process.

The class have been busy painting self-portraits this week, and if you pop into the class next week you should be able to see these beautiful pictures displayed in the classroom. We have some talented artists amongst us.

Every Wednesday morning Mr McCloy comes into Class 1 to teach the class music. This week they were learning about dynamic control. They played a hide and seek game to see if they could follow volume change and understand musical directions.

In the construction area this week we have been making trains. As a class we agreed that we wanted to include a track, a horn, a carriage and 10 wheels. Look how creative they they been.

Remember we have an information evening for new parents on Wednesday 5th October!

This week Class 1 have had a week of firsts:

First full day, first P.E lesson, first assembly, first celebration assembly, and first tuck shop. They have been busy learning the sounds i,n,p,g,o and recognising words which start with those sounds.  They have enjoyed playing snap on the IWB to help them recognise numbers and consolidate their counting skills.

Most of the children have shared their homework boxes with each other now and are in the process of making posters all about themselves with their photos and pictures.

The children have really taken to their daily star learner task, which are activities that we ask the children to complete independently each day. This week they have practiced writing their names, made a self portrait  using a paper plate and completed some scissor skills activities.

I hope the Class have a restful weekend to recharge after their first full time week at school!

This week Class 1 have continued to settle in well. They have been learning to use the letters m,a,s,d,t to make and read words. We have been teaching ‘Squeak’ (The Class 1 parrot) how to count accurately, pointing or moving objects as he counts. We have also introduced our ‘Star Learner Tasks’ which are activities that children are expected to do independently during the day. I have been very impressed with the whole class and their keenness to have a go!
