Welcome to Foundation (Class F)
In Class F we are all about learning through play. We spend a lot of our time exploring, experimenting and getting messy both inside and outside.
Class Teacher: Miss Crawley
Teaching Assistants: Mr Storey, Mrs Spence and Mrs Philips
Class Governors: Mrs Veitch and Mrs Turner
In Class F we learn a lot of our EYFS Curriculum through playful interactions. We use the 7 Early Learning Goals, provided in the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework, supported through the use of the Development Matters document to plan, observe and assess the 7 areas of learning. The 7 areas of learning are as follows:
Both the indoor and outdoor classrooms are set up to support and enhance learning and development throughout the year. We use a balance of child-initiated and adult-led learning to support progress in all the 7 areas of learning. Take a look at some of our learning through play during Autumn Term:
As learning in Class F is often through play and child-initiated experiences, our planning reflects the need for flexibility, take a look at our long term plan to find out more about the skills and understanding we will gain throughout the year.
We deliver daily phonics lessons using the Letters and Sounds scheme of work. All children will have a sound book to practice new sounds at home when we begin phase 2 of the Letters and Sounds scheme. To further support knowledge of and a love of reading we welcome parents to make use of our Class F library to take and share books at home.
PE in Class F
PE lessons will be taught every Tuesday and Friday and children should come into school wearing their PE kits and will not need a change of clothes.
In Class F we use child interests to support and expand our learning, therefore our topics can change and develop unexpectedly to follow these key interests.
In Class F we also take part in a wide range of extra activities to support our learning and development.
We loved our first Hoopstarz! session.
Take a look at the bear hunt we went on around school!
We had such a fun day when Kwaku showed us how to play African drums, how to dance and how to make African art using Adinkra printing:
