Thank you for visiting our class page. On here, you can find information about our topics, phonics, Forest school, P.E. lessons, what you can do at home to help and useful websites . You can also find some useful documents as well as being able to see updates about our learning.

 

Topics

We follow the following topics through the year, however if the children show a particular interest in another area then we will learn about it.

 

Autumn 1- All about me

Autumn 2- Winter

Spring 1- Fairy tales

Spring 2- Growing

Summer 1- People who help us

Summer 2- Our World

Phonics

We follow Twinkl's phonics scheme of work which is a synthetic phonics programme for children from nursery to year 2. With rigorous coverage of phonic sounds, tricky words and essential skills, the children are guided confidently towards becoming fluent in reading and writing. The scheme is engaging and fun and delivered through the adventures of Kit, Sam and their friends. Each week a new sound is introduced, this is shared with parent's via a loom video and parent information sheet, on Tapestry. This is to enable parents to practice what the children have learnt in school at home too. Please find some useful sheets below to support your child's learning of phonics further at home.

 

An outline of our day

 

P.E.

We have P.E. every Thursday.

Music

Music sessions take place on a Friday morning. The purpose of these sessions are to support the children's learning within the area of expressive arts and design. During these lessons, the children will learn to:

  • sing melodic shapes (such as going up and down or down and up)
  • sing the pitch of a tone sung by the teacher
  • sing a variety of traditional nursery rhymes and songs
  • clap syllables in words and phrases
  • play percussion instruments 
  • express their feelings about different pieces of music
  • and most importantly have fun!

 

Forest School

We enjoyed getting muddy and exploring at Forest School, in Autumn 1. We carry out our next adventures in Spring 2 and Summer 1.

What you can do to help at home

 

It is really important that we work together to follow, guide and support your child's development of learning. Please do share with us anything new that your child is doing at home, anything you think they need support with and also any special moments.

 

You can do this by using you 'Tapestry' app, sending in a sharing moment on a honeycomb or by simply telling us at drop off or pick up times. 

 

Just a few other things you can do to support your child's learning and development at home are:

 

  • Allow your child to be as independent as possible. Can they get themselves dressed? Can they put their shoes on? Can they do up the zips or buttons on their coats? It is important to give them time to practice.
  • Each day, share a story together and ask your child questions about what they have read, to check how well they’ve understood the story.
  • Play some sound games together like: eye spy, what letter does my object start with? Can you think of a word that starts with...? Play alliteration games big bear, slithering snake, green grass.
  • Choose rhyming stories to read like 'What the ladybird hear', 'Fox socks' or 'Room on a Broom'.  If you read the same rhyming story often then your child will eventually join in.
  • Take some quality time to talk to each other.
  • Make some special time together to have fun. This could be playing a board game, building something out of lego, cooking, acting out a story with teddies/mini figures, painting a picture, making something out of recycled materials, making some play dough or dancing.
  • Sing nursery rhymes together like: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 once I caught a fish alive or Five little monkeys, Humpty Dumpty.
