Caring and Sharing... Believing and Achieving Together.

Class 1

Welcome to Class 1: our bright, spacious classroom that looks out onto the school field and our forest school, and home this year to our Nursery an Reception class.  Your teachers are Mrs Bishop and Mr McDonagh and we have support from our wonderful teaching assistants Mrs Stone and Mrs Hyett.  The classroom has lots of different areas of learning to explore during our first few days together.

Maths- Exploring Numicon and numeral recognitions

In maths, we have been working really hard on our place value. We have been exploring numbers, counting patterns and recognising numerals. We even tried tricky challenges when counting out of sequence and showing our understanding of the Numicon.

PE- Big Balls

In PE, we have been working on our concentration, listening and problem solving using lots of different balls. We have been using rugby, basket and tennis balls to complete different challenges. These challenges include: throwing and catching, trying to balance in different ways. Have you ever tried to pass a basket ball through your legs and behind your back without dropping it?! Have a go!
