Blackbirds. Years R and 1

Term One Blackbird Class


In Blackbird class we have six Reception children and eighteen Year 1 children. Our Teachers are Mrs McLean on Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Moore on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Turner, and we have some regular volunteers who help us with our learning too. We have a lovely bright classroom with different areas to work and play in. We also have an outside area with lots of equipment and resources to explore.


Our Topic this term is Sun, Sea and Sand, and we have some exciting learning planned across all the areas of the Early Years and Year One curriculum. The children will have daily phonics lessons, maths and English tasks and topic activities as well as continuous provision when the children take part in a large variety of cross curricular tasks, activities and play.


The children need PE kit in school every day: their timetabled PE sessions are on Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure that long hair is tied back for PE. The children can bring in a named bottle of water each day to keep in the classroom but if they forget there are cups and water available.


If you have need to speak to us, you can catch us before or after school or please feel free to make an appointment through the school office.


For more information about what we are learning please look at the curriculum maps on our curriculum pages.


We are looking forward to an exciting term playing and learning together.
