Pott Shrigley Class 1 2021 - 2022

Mrs Turner

September/October  2021


The children have all settled beautifully into class one, with reception and year one working together, with continued access to outdoor learning and continous provision.

We are continuing our topic on Ourselves (please see the overview for more details).

Reception are making a great start with phase 2 phonics and year one have moved onto phase 4 phonics and are working on developing their sentence writing.

In maths we are working on number and using White Rose to develop a lot of discussion, thinking and explanation skills to really enhance the understanding of number.  Reception are doing lots of practical activities to develop counting and matching skills, through games, actions and finding numbers.

We have enjoyed our "No Outsiders" week, based on "The Family Book" and drew some amazing pictures, in the style of the book, had great discussions about our own families and had to decide which was more like our family: e.g. if we were messy or quiet, lived a long way away or close, looked the same or different and this created lots of great discussion and the need for a middle area in some cases as felt we were a bit of both.

We had an amazing bike themed day making our own bikes, colouring Union Jack  flags carefully, having a bike race on the playground and then watching the Tour of Britan come past our school.

We have also enjoyed some cake sampling to raise money for Macmillian.

From the first week we have enjoyed our weekly minibus outing to Forest School on a Friday afternoon.

We use Tapestry online journal, so parents are in touch with what their children are doing in school and can also post things from home to help strengthen the home school link, which is so vital in the early years.

If you do have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the school.

Kind regards and best wishes.

Mrs. Turner
