Class 1 Curriculum Information

Welcome to Class One 

Reception - Mrs Harlin

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.

We can't quite believe how quickly this year has flown by! In Class 1 this week, we have been looking back on our memories since starting school, thinking about all the things we have enjoyed and the skills we have learnt. We are perfecting our dance for the fete on Saturday and keeping our fingers crossed for some sunshine!

Class 1 have been busy making 'Potions' at Forest School this week. We used Mermaid tears and  Dragon snot to make them extra magical! We have been working so hard learning our dance for the Summer fete, I am so impressed with how brilliant the children have been. We have been reviewing our work on shape and creating sentences using tricky words.

We had great fun in the sunshine at Forest school this week. We explored bark and leaf rubbing as well as making some stick men! The children have been thinking about the story of 'The Rainbow Fish' this week. They have looked at spelling some tricky words in their writing and thought about how to be a good friend by sharing. This linked nicely to the sharing we have been looking at in maths, where the children were able to share the Rainbow Fish's shiny 'scales' amongst different numbers of fish. We have started practising events for sports day and can't wait to show off our skills on Monday!
