A very warm welcome to Class 1… 

In class 1 we follow the EYFS and have lots of fun learning as we play. 

This half term we are focusing on settling and developing our understanding of class and school routines. We are developing relationships; getting to know our peers and the adults who help us in class. We are just learning to sit with a little encouragement (this is a very new thing for most of us 😊) for short group sessions with our friends, including snack and dinner times and some focused tasks with familiar adults. We enjoy using our I pads and the interactive whiteboard too to watch songs, play games and mark-make. We are learning to be more independent, and are working on our self-help skills, such as washing our hands and dressing. We are enjoying engaging in new activities with our peers - skills such as turn-taking and sharing are an important focus for us. And we especially love playing and exploring in our class outdoor area!  

This half-term our theme is ‘Me and my Family’ and we love our daily group music and movement sessions on this topic. We are looking at ‘The Family Book’ by Todd Parr in our daily Literacy sessions and are enjoying exploring props within our sensory story. In Maths we are developing our understanding of number and learning to follow a counting sequence. We have especially enjoyed the number rhyme ‘5 little Monkeys Jumping on a Bed’ and like to ‘jump’ our toy monkeys on the parachute whilst we sing the song!  

In class 1 we work very hard to maintain a caring, friendly and safe environment where we can all learn and have fun together. Welcome to our class!
