Welcome to our Class

Welcome to Class 1!  There are 16 reception and 5 Year 1 children in our class. We are taught by Mrs Fox on Monday to Thursday and Miss Relph teaches us on Friday.

Our topic this term is ‘On the Beach’ Please see the link below for further information about the learning that will be taking place in Class 1 this term.

Class Rules and Weekly Timetable

We have 4 Golden Rules in Class 1:

  1. Try your best!
  2. Be kind and helpful.
  3. Be a good learner.
  4. Tidy up!

We do P.E twice a week so it is a good idea to have your P.E kit (including trainers) in school all week.

Forest School is on Friday – Group information will be sent out at the beginning of term. When it is your turn you need come to school in long sleeved tops and trousers and bring wellies (to get changed into.) Please bring school uniform into school, as all children will get changed into their uniform after their forest school session.

This term our topic is ‘On the Beach.’ Have a look below to see what we will be learning about this term:

We have a book banded system for supporting the teaching of reading, which includes a range of published schemed books (Oxford Reading Tree, Project X, Collins Big Cat, Ginn, Story Chest and Phonics Bug). The children then progress onto read books of their choice from a wide selection of ‘Free Readers’. Children have regular guided reading sessions in their class to build on early reading comprehension and phonics skills.
