A very warm welcome to Class 1…

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

We have now developed a good understanding of class and school routines, and have formed lovely relationships with the adults who help us in the classroom. We are sitting for short group sessions with our friends across the day, including snack and dinner times, and are completing some short focused tasks with familiar adult, ie creative activities, workbox tasks etc. We enjoy using our I pads and the interactive whiteboard too to watch songs, play games and mark-make. We continue to work on our self-help ad independence 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 remain an important focus for us. And we are especially enjoying playing and exploring some of our new equipment in our class outdoor area! 

This half-term our theme is ‘Helping hands’ and we love our daily group music and movement sessions on this topic. We have been exploring a sensory poem about firefighters in our daily Literacy lessons and have loved playing with small world firefighters and fire engines. In Maths we continue to develop our understanding of number and are beginning to follow simple counting sequences with help. We have especially enjoyed the number rhyme ‘5 little firemen standing in a row’ and have loved dressing up as firefighters with helmets and wellies!

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!
