Class 1 (Pre-school & Reception)


It has been fantastic getting to know the children in Class 1 and we are really looking forward to all the exciting learning activities we have planned for this term.  

Our weekly timetable will consist of lots of fun activities that will take place indoors and in our outdoor environment. Learning opportunities will be planned around our seven areas of learning and development according to the EYFS curriculum and will involve adult let and child-initiated activities.

We will continue to use Read Write Inc in our daily phonics lessons to learn new sounds and to use ‘Fred Frog’ to help us with our blending skills. Reception children will bring home reading books they can practise with you and every child will bring home a sharing book that you can enjoy together. Please share your comments in their yellow reading records.

Our theme for this term is Amazing Adventures’ and we are so excited to explore lots of different journeys through storytelling, investigating and exploring different environments around the world. We will go on different adventures through the polar regions, explore pirates and mermaids and share the importance of Spring and Easter. As in all EYFS learning environments, ideas may be adapted to allow for children’s interests or other worldwide events to flow through the provision.

 In Maths, we will continue to deepen our understanding of numbers to 10 including the composition of each number and use subitising (recognise quantities without counting) while also exploring shape, space and measure. In literacy, we will be retelling the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Elves and the Shoemaker.  

Our PE day will remain on a Friday this term so please ensure children continue to come to school in their PE kits. If your child wears earrings, please ensure they are not in on a Friday. Also, please make sure your child has a pair of wellies in school for our outdoor areas – we like to explore the mud!!!!!

We will continue to communicate through Tapestry to share our learning journey in school and your child’s achievements but also please share any pictures from home that your child can share to the rest of the class. We look forward to seeing them.

Each week, children will earn poms for positive rewards for their house colour and each day one child will be chosen as a star child of the day! There is also a chance your child might be selected for our Friskney Star of the Week and Friskney Writer of the Week certificate.

I am really looking forward to getting to know you all and please do not hesitate to come and see me if you have any queries about anything.

Kind Regards,

Mrs Gains
