Class One Summer 2019 Topic – Animal Magic
Literacy Topic – The Great Dragon Rescue
Learning to read and write
Every child in Class One will receive a daily phonics lesson using phonics play planning. This scheme introduces the children to new phonemes and graphemes and gradually builds their phonics knowledge to enable them to become independent, confident readers and writers
The children have access to a variety of books suitable for their current ability. The class teacher will listen to each child read on a weekly basis in addition to support staff and volunteers. We encourage children to read at home 3 x per week and for this to be recorded in a reading record book.
The school offers teacher led phonics, reading and writing workshops for parents to ensure continuity between home and school learning. The most recent workshops were very well attended.
Improvements are under way in our learning environment here in Class One.
Here are our interpretations of Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night. We used, paint, sponges, straws and chalk to create these pictures.
The children were asked to create a piece of learning about space – these look amazing!
