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 have been reading lots in Class 1 this week! We have used our sounds to decode and blend ‘green’ words, practised reading these with a partner and then read short sentences using these words. We have also been reading and writing about ‘Stickman’. The children have been finding out about the nativity story and have done some beautiful singing.


This week, Class 1 enjoyed their first Forest School session. The children had great fun exploring and we are already looking forward to our next visit! In class we have been thinking about remembrance by sharing a story about a mercy dog and using different techniques to make poppies. In maths, we have been getting really clever at finding one more or one less than a number.


Class 1 have learning more, less and the same this week through lots of practical activities. They have been developing reasoning skills to make groups with similar amounts the same and explaining how to do this. So many children are applying their blending and segmenting skills to decode and spell cvc words independently. Some super progress in movement patterns in PE too.
