Class 1 (Pre-school & Reception)

Welcome to Class 1

We enjoy spending time in our classroom and our outdoor area. Within our class, our learning takes place through play, exploration and investigation. We are lucky that we have such a wonderful outdoor space to be able to take our learning outdoors! Our Class Teacher is Miss Denton, and our Teaching Assistants are Miss Burgin and Miss Price.

Our weekly timetable consists of fun activities and opportunities for lots of learning. We have a daily focus for fine motor skill sessions such as Disco Dough where we dance and develop our fine motor skills using the dough. In our daily phonics session, we are using Read Write Inc. which allows great progression from the beginning. We enjoy learning new sounds and have Fred Frog to help us.

This term we have lots of exciting learning planned. This term our topic is ‘Under the Sea’. We will be looking at what happens in the summer, and what happens under the sea. We even have an exciting trip planned to an aquarium. We will continue learning about life cycles, with a focus on a caterpillar turning into a butterfly! We are waiting for our butterflies to come out of their chrysalis!

Our PE day will be on Wednesday this term. Please can children continue to come into school in their PE kits.

Our learning can be found on Tapestry which documents each child’s learning journey. This is a great way for grown-ups to see what the children have been learning about at school and a great way for parents and carers to communicate what children have been learning at home.

Each week children collect pompoms for positive rewards. This is a whole class reward system, and the pompoms are counted at the end of the week to see which class has won. Class One get VERY excited to earn their pompoms. There is also a chance for children to be selected for our Friskney Star of the Week certificate.

We have begun our buddy reading system, which happens every Monday afternoon. Children from Class Three join Class One to share a story.

Many thanks,

Miss Denton
