Believe and Achieve

Class 1

We plan a range of exciting topics through the year but these can change when children's interests and needs are taken in to account.

We plan and teach for:

  • Personal, Social, Emotional development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Understanding the world
  • Mathematics
  • Literacy
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Young children learn through play and the school's Foundation Unit provides continuous provision both indoors and outdoors for our EYFS children as well as high-quality teacher-led and guided activities.  

Our directed sessions include:

  • Phonics- following the Oxford Reading Tree Sounds and Letters.
  • Mathematics- following White Rose Maths for reception.







This term


During the first half of the summer term, Class 1 will be learning all about transport. They will be looking at how they travel to and from school, completing a traffic survey, designing and creating their own mode of transport, comparing vehicles from today with those from the past and learning all about the adventures of a very 'naughty bus'. 


The children will continue with their phonics sessions, focusing on Stage 3 of Floppys Phonics. They will be having a go at writing sentences in Literacy and counting to 20 and beyond in Maths. 


They will be taking part in Forest schools every Thursday as well as outdoor PE on a Monday afternoon. 


Through the RE lessons, the children will be learning about friendship and special places. 


All children will have access to continuous provision both indoors and outdoors and they will have lots of exciting challenges to complete in all of the areas of the provision. 


 The children will explore different cultures as they learn about Ramadan and Eid celebrations.
