We learn together as a class in the mornings, developing our reading, writing and maths.
We continue our reading journey by reading in groups, as a whole class and sometimes individually. This is supported by reading at home. When we can read fluently, we choose from a wide range of children’s literature and non-fiction.
Our phonics skills are further developed following Letters and Sounds, using a mixture of resources including Read Write Inc so that we are well prepared for the Y1 Phonics Check and are able to use our skills to support spelling.
In Maths, we use a mixture of practical equipment like Numicon and Base 10 to support our understanding of number. We practise our times tables daily and apply our growing understanding of measures, shape and space in different subjects.
We join Reception in the afternoon to explore foundation subjects through a variety of approaches including enquiry based learning, learning outdoors and direct teaching. This is often through a theme or topic.
We follow the Val Sabin scheme of work for PE and often have coaches deliver aspects such as Dance and Gymnastics. PE is currently on Tuesday afternoon.
We would like parents to share a book each evening, help us practise our times tables daily and support our learning of spellings and high frequency words.
