Welcome to Class R
In Class R we have lots of fun! The children learn predominantly through play, in both our indoor classroom and outdoor area. Daily activities provide lots of opportunities for the children to develop skills in communication and language, personal and social development, physical development, independence, resilience, and creativity. Our topics are based on the children’s interests and encourage them to be inquisitive about the world around them.
Some of the most popular topics so far this year have been People who help us, Diwali, Dinosaurs and Chinese New Year. We loved cooking Chinese stir frys! Literacy and Numeracy skills are taught through a variety of engaging activities.
The children are taught Phonics every day using the Letters and Sounds program of study which provides them with the skills to become competent readers.
The children love playing educational games on the interactive whiteboard in the classroom and are learning new skills in our ICT lessons each week in the computer suite.
We love going on trips. We have had an Autumn activity morning at Brockhill Park, took part in a Reception Fun day event at Three Hills Sports Park and are looking forward to visiting Wildwood in the Summer term.
In Class R there are many opportunities for parents to be involved in their child’s learning. Three times a year we hold a Stay and Play session where parents are invited to come in to the classroom and play and learn with their child.
………………………This is an opportunity for parents to gain a better understanding of how their child learns at school………………
