Hadrian Primary School

"An outstanding school where children make excellent progress" Ofsted

Reception Mrs Donnelly

Welcome to Class 2!

 

Class 2 is a Reception class, Mrs Donnelly is the teacher and Mrs Waters, Mrs Noble and Miss Boner are the teaching assistants. We work closely with Miss Barr and Class 3.

 

Our Day:

We start the day with Phonics (learning sounds) to help the children with their reading and writing.

After phonics it's planning time where the children choose where they would like to learn. They can choose from a range of learning areas both indoors and outdoors, such as writing, creative, construction, role play and number. Activities in these areas are based on objectives for the term and the children's interests.

We then do handwriting everyday focusing on different letter families each week..

After a run around outside, we do basic skills - Literacy and Numeracy based alongside focused Literacy and Maths activitiies where the children work one to one or in a small group with a teacher. 

 

In the afternoon we start with an active numeracy session. We then continue with more planning and small group work covering a range of curriculum areas. We finish the day with basic skills activities and guided reading sessions.
