Hello to the children and parents of Class R! We will be busy over the coming year adding pictures of all the learning and exciting things we have been up to. We hope you enjoy looking at all our activities. Thank you for your support. Miss Mitchell & Team
Welcome to the first half of the Summer term (where has the year gone?). This term's theme is 'People Who Help Us' and we will be focusing on Shopkeepers, Vets, and the Emergency Services, finishing with an exciting visit to Erith Fire Station! This topic links to the 'Understanding the World' Early Learning Goal and helps the children to have more of an understanding of their own local environment and the importance of the 'community' and 'keeping safe'. We look forward to an enjoyable term. Miss Mitchell & Team
Welcome back to the second half of Spring Term! We have been very busy exploring our topic of 'Traditional Tales' and are getting very good at retelling stories and using our phonic knowledge to write about them. We will continue this topic into this term, and will also celebrate Mother's Day and Easter. We hope you enjoy looking at the photos of some of our activities below. Miss Mitchell & Team
Welcome back to the start of 2018 - happy new year! This term's topic is 'Traditional Tales', and we will be exploring 'Goldilocks', 'Red Riding Hood', 'The Three Little Pigs' and 'The Gingerbread Man'. Traditional stories help children to retell stories in the correct order and recognise that stories have patterns and structure. They also contain repeated speech and text which the children can then retell orally and in written form using their growing phonic knowledge. In Maths we will be continuing to focus on number recognition and counting skills, and will be learning to recognize and describe 3D shapes. Thank you for your continued support. Miss Mitchell & Team
Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term! This term will begin with a focus on 'Bonfire Night', and we will be taking part in lots of creative activities to celebrate this annual British festival, as well as learning about the true story of what happened. Our Literacy learning focus will be on using our phonic knowledge to write words, and in Maths we will explore 2D shapes and repeating patterns. We will then move onto exploring the stories of 'Percy the Park Keeper' and 'woodland animals'. We will be practising retelling stories in the correct order and talking about the events and characters in stories. Christmas will then be nearly upon us, so the last few weeks of term will be busy with us taking part in lots of Christmas themed activities and practising for our Nativity Show. Photos of our activities will be added soon. We look forward to an enjoyable term. Miss Mitchell & Team
The children of Class R will be very busy over the next few weeks settling into school and exploring their classroom and it's resources. They will be taking part in lots of child initiated play and learning, which will enable us to find out what they can already do and what their next steps are. The children will be getting used to working in large and small groups, as well as one-one with an adult, and we look forward to supporting the next steps in their learning. We are exploring the theme of 'Ourselves' and will be talking about our bodies, our families and our homes, and discovering and celebrating how different and unique we all are! Then we will be exploring how to keep ourselves healthy. Soon we will be adding photographs of our activities for you to enjoy. Thank you for your support. Miss Mitchell & Team
