Welcome to our class page, we are Reception and Year 1, our teacher is Mrs Harvey and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs White.
We use a play-based creative curriculum to cover the objectives in all the areas of learning of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework as well as following the KS1 curriculum for Year 1. This is done through themes drawing upon our interests. We love to play and work in our spacious classroom and lovely Outdoor Area. We also go on Welly Walks around the village and to Dinton Park as well as trips further afield.
Please visit our Gallery to see what we have been up to since the beginning of September.
Week 5 Monday 23rd May 2022
Now we come to our final week in Term 5, it has certainly been a very quick and busy term.
This week in phonics, the Reception and Year 1 children will be looking at polysyllabic words (a revision for Year 1 children prior to the phonics screening next month). These are words of more than one syllable such as: sandpit, flower, children etc. These can be segmented now that the children know all of these sounds. Some of the children will continue to work with Level 2 sounds.
Year 1 children will have their dictation on Monday, but no spellings over the holiday. They will instead be bringing home some words from level 2 - 5 phonics to practise reading before their phonics check. Although, regular reading of books would ensure that the children are reading these words daily.
In Maths last week, all the children had a go at counting in 2s and 5s and seeing the pattern in the digits. We didn't have time to look at length and height, so will be doing so this week.
Topic/English - This week we will be looking at the importance of teeth and how to care for them at home by cleaning, healthy eating and visiting the dentist regularly. We will link this to the book 'Alan's Big Scary Teeth' as well as many other books about caring for teeth and losing teeth.
As it is also the last week before the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the children will have lots of Royal Jubilee related activities.
