Welcome to Class R’s page.

Class R’s staff team is Mrs Drewery and Mrs Cale. We are available for ‘a quick chat’ every morning and home time.

Messy play in Class R  - children are likely to get wet, painty, sticky, grubby, tired and dishevelled but this is a natural part of their learning journey.

Wednesday is a busy day. Class R do ‘Write dance’ and visit the ICT suite in small groups. We also get the bikes and scooters out for ‘wheels on Wednesday’.

Thursday is ‘book day’.

Reading records, reading books and library books are returned to school. Class R children visit the school library every Thursday morning to choose 2 new library books and new reading books are given out at the end of the day. Parents, grandparents and carers are welcome to come to school at 3pm on Thursdays to share books with their child in the school library.

Friday is ‘PE day’. Please leave your child’s PE kit in school for the whole half term and just take it home in the holidays for a freshen up.

Floppy phonics and Action words – Class R enjoy daily phonics lessons and action words input. 

Maths – Class R get busy straight away with a maths ‘morning starter’ on the carpet just before registration.  Focused maths teaching takes place in the afternoons.

Provision – Class R children get lots of time to explore the provision in the classroom and learn independently.  Provision areas are constant and are enhanced to reflect our topic.

Outdoor play – provision outside reflects what is happening in the classroom and is topic related. There are opportunities for children to choose which equipment they would like out of the outdoor store. Focused teaching also takes place outside. 

This term our topic is ‘Hot and Cold places’. We will be learning about the Polar Regions and Africa.
