Miss Edwards' Class - 2016-17

 A BIG welcome to children, parents and carers!


This half term our topic is “There is no-one quite like me” . We will be learning all about ourselves, from how to stay healthy to how to be a good friend.

Our role play corner this half term is a home corner.


Read Write Inc. (literacy)

Each day, at school, the children will take part in a phonics lesson through the scheme Read Write Inc. Here, they learn all the key sounds needed for early reading, with the help of Fred the Frog. Fred says words like d-o-g as opposed to dog.



Each week we will have a maths focus. We are starting with what may seem like simple concepts, however we want to ensure that all children have a solid understanding of what numbers actually mean, instead of simply rote learning. We are linking maths to our topic where necessary, by using our special fingers to count, by talking about our ages, heights etc.


Understanding the World.

As part of our topic, we will be learning about celebrations and traditions and differences in cultures and celebrations.


Expressive Arts and Design

We have already painted our own portraits, as part of our topic, which are now displayed on our wall. We will also be doing art linked to our families and our bodies, as well as music and junk modelling.

 In addition to our indoor learning in the classroom, we also enjoy doing lots of outdoor learning in our reception garden.


Indoor PE – Tuesday PM.

Any practise that could take place at home regarding getting changed independently would be a great help.


Please ensure your child brings a NAMED water bottle to school.


Sound books are given out daily with the new sound learnt in the Read Write Inc session of that morning. Please go through this sound with your child as extra support at home really does have a positive impact on their learning in school.
