Class 1

Class 1 have made a fantastic start to their time at Bickleigh Primary School and we are delighted with the way they have settled in. This term we are planning a series of mini topics including Harvest, The Little Red Hen, Autumn, and then we will be into Christmas. We deliberately leave some gaps in our topic planning so that we can pick up on, and develop, any interests or themes coming from the children.

We will be learning our phonics daily and sending them home to practise; learning to retell and act out stories and rhymes to develop our story language; focusing on numbers to 10, practising our counting and number recognition; looking at shapes and patterns; using our noticing skills to look at seasonal changes; we will work hard to develop our independence to be able to look after our own needs and also work hard to collaborate and work together.

You can help by counting anything and everything; practising phonics at home; talking about stories and books and helping the children to make links in their learning by collecting anything relevant to our topics and bringing it in to show!

Don’t forget to log onto your Tapestry accounts to see the observations and assessments we are loading on your child. Please see Miss Oxenham if you are struggling to do this.
