We are lucky to have a large, bright classroom where we learn with our friends and teachers; Mrs McLean ( Monday – Thursday) and Mrs Russell ( Friday). We have a teaching assistant called Mrs McGuire and a teaching assistant apprentice called Miss Edgar.
We work hard at our English and maths every morning and start each day with thirty minutes of phonics. We have fun challenging ourselves and get excited about new learning. In the afternoons we concentrate on topic work. This term our topic is Sun and Sea. We have explored the features of a seaside resort, investigated seaside holidays in the past and studied sea creatures, including finding out about their food chains and life cycles. At the moment we are exploring David Hockney’s techniques for painting water and will incorporate some of these ideas into our seaside landscape paintings. Our role play area is a “Beach Hut Hub” where we do lots of activities and role play.
On Tuesdays we have singing with Robin Class and raise the roof as we learn new songs with Mrs McLean on her guitar. We have P.E. twice a week. Mrs Emery takes us for gym, dance and movement and we have a sports coach for multi-skills.
