Class 1

Mrs Edmonds and Mrs Singleton teach Class 1. In Class 1 there are Reception children following the EYFS curriculum. Class 1 are lucky to have Mrs Baldry, Mrs LB, Mrs O'Grady and Mr Davis working with us too.
 We will be observing the children in their play and playing alongside the children too. We are going to follow the interest of the children and learn all about what they like.

During our first week we have been making dens, houses, trucks and tunnels from cardboard boxes.

We have enjoyed playing with the Beebots, Code a Pillar and giving them instructions to move around the room.



We also had a very exciting morning digging up the potatoes which had been planted by last years Class 1. The children have decided to make some potato soup and mash potato.


PHONICS

Phase 1: Since the start of term children have been developing their listening skills and have been listening for rhyme, distinguishing sounds and repeating sounds.

Phase 2: This week in phonics the children have learnt the letter sounds:
s   a   t   p

practise recognising and writing these sounds at home

next week:

i   n   m   d
and high frequency words: in, is, it, at











Our Environment

Our class is set up so the children can access everything they need for themselves.
We want the children to be very independent and also learn to tidy up what they have enjoyed playing with.



Outdoor play: 

Outside we have a mud kitchen, sand pit, large construction area, creation station and wobble bridge.

We also enjoy gardening and do a weekly forest school session. The children get to use tools, start fires and we go out whatever the weather.
