Welcome to Class 1

Codename: The Robins
Class Teacher: Mrs G Jones, BA Ed (Hons), PGCE
Classroom Assistant: Mrs V Lightfoot / Mrs Edmed


Welcome back, I hope you have all had a great break. We’re looking forward to welcoming Ty into our class and I’m sure that everybody will help him to get to grips with all of the things we have learned so far.

We will continue to learn more new letter sounds and consolidate our understanding of counting and number. We’ll also start to look at some simple shapes and patterns.

My teaching is  always guided by the children’s  interests and we’ll be having lots of discussion over the next week about the things they would like to study. After we have decided which topic they want to work on, I will adapt my plans to reflect this and also make a role play area that will support their learning.

I’ll keep in touch and publish the revised plan on our webpage.

Early Learning Goals

In our class we work towards the children achieving the Early Learning Goals and we do this through a combination of challenge and play.

We carry out regular assessment to ensure that the children feel challenged but comfortable and confident about their own abilities.

Our Day
