Reception/Year 1 - R/1P
I want to officially welcome you to our new mixed Foundation/Year 1 class!
We hope you all are enjoying this first term and that now all the children are settled and ready to set out on a new and memorable stage in their lives.
As you all know now, this year our Learning support assistants are Mrs White and Mrs Vince. They are also enjoying these first weeks and can already see how the children’s learning journey is rocketing!
We are lucky enough to have a large classroom with access to a beautiful and spacious outdoor area which the children can access freely during their independent learning time.
In Reception, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and we learn through purposeful play while developing the Characteristics of Effective Learning.
In Year 1, we follow the National Curriculum, ensuring ‘foundation subjects’ are taught following the EYFS ethos, as we feel morel methods of teaching are not suitable for our pupils when they initially move from the EYFS into KS1.
