Class 1 Important Information
The Children's 'learning journeys' - photos, videos and observations are uploaded onto their Tapestry account for the parents to see. Parents are able to comment on their learning and even upload photos and videos from home! 'Tapestry Time' is brilliant, it's when the children are able to stand up at the big screen and share and talk about events outside of school.
Each day we have Phonics, Literacy and Maths. We enjoy exploring the continuous provision in our room at 'busy learning time'. During the day we have 'milk time' and 'fruit time'. We are able to join our friends and buddies at playtime. At lunch we sit with our year 6 buddies and class friends.
Your child will have a log in for "Numbots" - A useful app which focuses on improving children's understanding and automaticity of key number facts.
Within the first few weeks at school the children will complete an assessment - see documents (Reception Baseline information for parents and What is the RBA?)
Keeping parents informed of what we get up to ... Make sure you look on ClassDojo each Friday, there will be a weekly round up of ALL the thinsg we have been busy with!
Take a look at the Medium Term curriculum plans and yearly overview below.
Phonics & Reading
We learn different phonic sounds each week, we use Song of Sounds. (Check out the Phonics tab above). Also keep an eye out for the sound packs in book bags!
The reading books are linked with the phonic sounds we learn each week, please comment and sign the reading record in your child's book bag.
Each week we take home books to share and enjoy - we choose our own books- one from our school library and a one from "The 50 recommended reads for Reception".
We do PE each Friday afternoon - Please come to school dressed for PE.
In whole school celebration assembly on Fridays one child receives a "Star of the Week" certificate for their hard work.
One child is also chosen as the "Star Reader", there's also a "Star Writer" and another child is chosen as a "Numbots award winner". They too all receive certificates in celebration assembly.
We each have a buddy to help us when we need them. Our buddies are in Year 6. They play games at lunchtime with us, help us in the hall, care for us in the playground.
During the year we enjoy shared activities like... reading together, working out maths problems together and even sitting together in the Cinema!
We enjoy using the blocks inside and outside to build exciting things!
We have all-weather full waterproofs to wear outside. Children can bring their own wellies, to keep on their peg (don't worry though we have plenty of spares!)
Always remember to bring a coat!
Each Wednesday afternoon we join with Class 2 and head out into our wonderful school grounds. We explore, study, build and learn! It is great fun!
Photos are uploaded to our Class Dojo page and to our Tapestry accounts.
