We are a happy class of 8 pupils aged 4 and 5
We have 8 members of our Class Team: Ruth is our Class Teacher and we have 3 great Teaching Assistants. Everybody works together to help us achieve our individual goals in all aspects of the school day.
As the youngest pupils in the school, settling happily into school life and learning all the new routines is a major focus in our class. Therefore the personal and social aspects of the curriculum are central to the children’s learning.
Also important are plenty of opportunities to learn through practical play activities. Through play and exploration, both independently and alongside an adult, children are learning a whole range of skills across all areas of the curriculum.
We are very lucky to have a spacious classroom with separate workroom/playroom and sensory room. These facilities really enable us to plan and deliver to the children’s individual needs. As well as this we have our own secure playground with a variety of outdoor equipment and our own climbing area.
During the school week we participate in a variety of activities including literacy, numeracy, cookery, art, swimming sessions and for the first part of the school year we will be horse riding. We will be able to continue to enjoy our PE sessions with Gavin and Forest School sessions with Bex. Each of us have our own Structured Support Plan which enables us to have a personalised curriculum to allow us to achieve our individual goals. We enjoy whole group sessions, as well as working in smaller groups and individually within the class.
We have a busy year planned, where each term the Primary Department will have a different topic to focus around. This term we are focusing around our topic of ‘Where’s the Bear?’. We will be sharing stories such as ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ and ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, and using all our senses to to experience exciting activities. There will also be weekend trips home for our Class Bear Belle. For regular updates check out our class blog
