Our days are always very busy in Class One. We start our day with a whole class Phonics session where we learn new sounds or tricky words. We then have a child initiated session, where fantastic learning takes place, both inside and outside.
Before lunch we come back together to have a topic based discussion. We might be looking at our caterpillars, reading and discussing a story, or observing change. It's always a conversation starter and is sparked by the children's interests.
After lunch we come together again to have a maths session. We use practical resources to embed number, space, shape and measure knowledge. This is the 'doing' stage of maths and we enjoy problem solving practically.
Our afternoons are made up of further child initiated learning and further enriching activities.
