Our Classroom

In our classroom we have lots of different areas to support us in our learning. We love selecting activities for ourselves which helps us to become more independent.

We have a sand and water area, a role play area (which changes each half term) at the moment we have a home corner where we re-enact real life experiences such as setting the table, washing up and dressing and feeding our baby doll Lucy. We also engage in lots of fine motor activities which help to develop the muscles in our hands to prepare us for writing. We particularly enjoy playdoh, threading and peg boards. Our construction resources are also very popular, we love building towers using Duplo!

We have a class bear called ‘Everywhere Bear’ and he is taken home by a member of the class each week. The lucky person takes photographs, draws picture or writes what they have done with him and this is then shared with the rest of the class.

Outdoor Learning

Outdoor learning is just as important as our indoor learning. We go outside in the Magic Garden everyday regardless of the weather! We love getting messy in the mud kitchen, practising our throwing and catching skills using bean bags and balls, playing hide and seek and participating in treasure hunts! We also use the bikes and scooters regularly.  We really like playing on the bikes and with the parachute.


Our Day

We follow the EYFS curriculum which is made up of 7 areas of learning, We learn lots of new skills through indoor and outdoor continuous provision. We focus on a range of skills such as sharing and turn taking, learning how to dress ourselves and developing our communication and language skills.

In our class we participate in small group work and in whole class sessions. We learn lots of new skills like Phonics where we learn to read and write and we also do lots of practical number work using Numicon which aids us to develop our knowledge of numbers to 20.

Things to Remember

Red school planners need to be in school each day so they can be checked.

Sound/Number Book needs to be in school bags each day so they can be updated when a new sound or number is added.

Friday – P.E day. Children must have a full P.E Kit in school.

Children may be expected to read each day so school reading books should be in red bags.

Star badges must be worn on uniform each day.

Rewards and Recognition

In our class we get stars for our good behaviour we are all in different houses and when we get a star we take it to our house, we try really hard to get stars because if our house gets the most stars at the end of the year we get to go on a trip. We wear different coloured star badges to represent which house we are in and we wear these with pride. We receive stickers for good behaviour and get to choose a prize from the special box if we do something really good.
