Hello and welcome to Acorns Class. Acorns class is made up of 30 wonderful reception children, taught by Miss Thomas - the Acorns class teacher, and supported by Mrs Whitehead, Mrs White and Miss Parsons.
Welcome back into the Spring Term. This term our Topic is all about 'SUPERHEROES' and we are thoroughly enjoying our hook books - Supertato, Supermum, Superworm and Ten Supermen. We are not just looking at superheroes that you'd expect either. This term we are looking at superheros that are all around us, including those that we live with, those that help us within the community and those that we least expect - after all, superheroes come in all different shapes and sizes.
We are also continuing our daily RWI lessons. This term we will be revisiting those set 1 sounds, and looking at set 2 sounds too! We will be learning rhymes and ways of remembering these, as well as working on our reading work with Miss Thomas and writing work with Mrs Whitehead.
In Maths we are continuing to look at a number of the week - this term going above and beyond 10. We will also use objectives from Development Matters to plan lessons accordingly and allowing your child to access Maths through fun and exploratory ways, as well as recording and learning through a Mastery Maths approach.
We have a wonderful classroom including an exciting indoor space and a large outdoor area which we can freely access throughout the day. We are excited to see your children develop this year through a broad and balanced curriculum that enables all children to develop to their full potential. Each child is valued as an individual and teaching and learning is based on the understanding that children develop at different rates.
If you have any questions and would like to discuss these with me, I am always available on the door in the mornings or after school. Please come in and join our classroom routines on a Wednesday and Friday too!
