Class R/1

This half term our theme is Amazing Animals. We have already set up lots of small world play based around dinosaurs and zoo animals. We will be exploring different animals and their features. We will find out about animal 'super powers' such as being able to see in the dark and hear sounds from many miles away. We will also be talking about how to care for animals such as pets and what animals need in order to stay alive. We will be looking at all the fascinating patterns and colours that many animals have and exploring them in different ways in Art and learning some animal songs and dances. We can't wait to get started.

 A warm welcome to both new and existing children and their families.


We are pleased to welcome Layla, Annie-Rose, Bobby, Oscar, Sebby, Sam, Thea, Sienna and Tiffany to our Reception/Year One class.


We start the year with a theme of "New Beginnings" where our focus is on settling in, exploring the activities whilst feeling secure and nurtured in class. 


We will be starting with two special books: "While We Can't Hug" by Eoin McLaughlin and "Mrs Noah's Pockets" by Jackie Morris. These beautifully illustrated books will provide us with lots of opportunities to chat about our feelings as well as ideas for linking Art, D&T and Literacy.
