Welcome to Class R, which is the Reception Class. Our teachers are Sharon Hagley (Monday to Thursday) and Mia Horrell (Friday). Our teaching assistant is Tasha Hagley.
In Reception we provide a carefully planned curriculum with a new theme each half term.
The children learn within an engaging and supportive environment with a balance of adult led and child- initiated activities. We have an outside space for children to access, with an all- weather track.
We understand the importance of Early Reading and writing and follow Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised phonics programme. The children have daily phonic lessons. Reading books will be sent home each Monday, so that you can support your child with reading at home.
Each Thursday and Friday the children have sports activities with a PE coach. They can come to school on these days in their PE clothes.
Welcome to Class One. We are Year One and Year Two. Our teachers are Mia Horrell (Tuesday – Friday) and Jane Hodgson (Monday). Our teaching assistant is Fran Greenslade (TA)
Everyday we practice our phonics, number facts, handwriting and reading. We also make time to pray and to meditate using mindfulness activities. We encourage daily reading of the book your child brings home. We enjoy a mix of group work with our adults and continuous provision which helps us apply and practice our learning.
Our continuous provision activities are linked to the learning the children are completing in the classroom. The children are all keen to complete the activities as they get invited to a special lunch if they have completed the most continuous provision challenges in the week!
PE is on a Thursday and Friday.
Welcome to Class 2 for children in Year Three and Year Four. Our teachers are Emily Budden (Monday, Tuesday and Friday) and Ellen Pearce (Wednesday and Thursday). Ruth Scott and Leona Wilson are our teaching assistants.
In Class 2 we love learning about the world around us, we learning through a mix of practical experiences, research and asking questions. We love asking questions and sharing what we have found out!
Everyday we practice our spellings, our times tables and read to ourselves or to each other. Every week we do PE (on a Thursday and a Friday), PSHE and RE as well as all of our other lessons.
Homework is handed in and set on a Monday. We have spellings and times tables to practice and we have weekly tests.
Welcome to Class 3 which is our year 5 and 6 children. On a Monday to Wednesday we are taught by Mrs James and on a Thursday to Friday by Mrs Boatman. Our teaching assistant throughout the week is Mrs Rodgers.
In class 3 we have termly topics which centre around learning about our world in the past and now. They tend to have either a geographical/scientific or a historical focus. We also do a class book over the term for our guided reading which is based on our current topic.
In the morning we focus on: guided reading, maths and English including grammar. In the afternoon we do our topic lessons, PSHE, RE, spellings, music, RE and PE.
We expect children to read at home every day and reading records should be handed in to be checked on a Monday. We have weekly spellings which children should also practice at home and they get tested on a Friday. Children are expected to work on their number skills at home and can use TT Rockstars for this. At times, we set additional homework which may be research based for our topic.
PE for Year 6 is on Thursday and for Year 5 on a Friday.
