Year 1/2 Miss Wilkinson

Welcome to Class 3!


Class 3 is a Reception and Year 1 class, Mrs Carr is the teacher and Mrs Waters, Mrs Noble and Miss Boner are the teaching assistants. We work closely with Mrs Donnelly and Class 2.


Reception Children:

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.

After a run around outside, we have a short handwriting session, focused on letter formation.

We finish the morning with focused Literacy and Maths activities, children working one to one or in a small group with an 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, guided reading sessions and a story just before home.


Our Week:

Monday at 3pm is an opportunity for parents to visit the school library with their children and choose a book to take home for the week. On Friday the whole class go to the library to choose a new book. Please ensure your child has returned their library book before then so it can be changed.

Wednesday is PE day. Please ensure your child has a PE kit to leave in school for the full half term. Their PE should include a white t-shirt, blue shorts and a pair of plimsoles. All PE kit needs to have their name in. Please remove all earrings for that day.
