In class RK our teacher is Mrs Knowles and the teaching assistants are Mrs Childs, Mrs Hardman, and Miss Watson. In our class, we have a calm, safe and enriching environment where we are free to be ourselves and learn through play.
Reading is a big part of our class time and we have a cosy reading area to snuggle down and enjoy a familiar book. Each week we have a new book to read and we use puppets to help us re-tell stories. Outside can be lots of fun for us too and it is a great for helping our personal development and increasing our skills in so many ways.
Our outdoor classroom can help us learn in the fresh air as well as being incredibly stimulating. The adults plan and carry out exciting activities, which build on our inquisitiveness and helps us learn through play.
We work very hard at our phonics and reading skills and ensure we use all the sounds learned. Once we have secured this knowledge, we are very good at using it in our writing too. We are working towards writing long and interesting sentences.
We are very fast when we are reciting the counting numbers from zero to twenty and even beyond. We can add numbers and already recognise many shapes. In reception we work had to subitise numbers up to ten, and use and develop our special mathematical vocabulary along the way. We are all individuals in our class and celebrate our differences. In our class we are building up a sense of who we are, how we belong and what makes us special.
