Welcome to Owl Class!
Welcome to Spring term in Owl Class. We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break. Our topic is 'Long Ago' . Please see the Spring 1 Curriculum Letter for more details about what we will be covering within our topic as well as some more general information about routines and what to remember.
We are the youngest class in the school. We are a mixed Reception and Year One class of 22 children. The children are taught by Miss Lark Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Cooke for part of Wednesday and on a Thursday and Friday. Mrs Ewles , Mrs Wong and Mrs Cornwall are the teaching assistants in Owl Class.
The EYFS children will be working on the EYFS curriculum. The Year 1 children will be working on the National Curriculum for Year 1.
Although we are a mixed class it is important to note that the Year One children follow the Year One National curriculum and do not repeat the same material that they did in their Reception Year. The adults in the class are carefully deployed to support all of the children. The Year One children are taught phonics as a single year group and maths in a small guided group . The curriculum is planned on a two year rolling cycle, so the children will cover new topics as Year One children in Owl Class.
You will find some information below about how to support your child with reading, phonics and maths.
