Class 1

Welcome to Class 1!
In class 1 we have children from reception, year 1 and year 2. 
This term in English KS1 children will be retelling stories, writing descriptions and writing instructions. Reception children will join in with part of our English lessons, listening to stories and poems and joining in with repeated phrases or acting out and sequencing parts of the story. 
We will be using RWI to teaching Set 1, 2 or 3 sounds depending on the children's assessed levels and we will use our phonics to help decode and read RWI books. We will have a daily story time and we want to really foster a love of stories and books in Class 1.  Please read with your child every day and record the reading in the home/school diary. Your support in this will make a huge difference to how your child values books and reading and will impact their learning, not only in reading but in every area of the curriculum.
Our Maths this term will begin with a focus on place value and provide lots of opportunities for using concrete resources, such as numicon or tens frames to explore our maths in a practical way. We love maths talk in Class 1 and will develop our maths brains by talking about what we know and why.
In Class 1 KS1 children are explicitly taught all curriculum areas (please see our Autumn term overview) but will also have the opportunity to revisit or extend their learning through activities provided in continuous provision. Reception children will also have both teacher directed tasks and ample opportunities to learn through play and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking critically.
