In class RK our teacher is Mrs Knowles and our teaching assistants are: Mrs Childs, Mrs Faithfull, Miss Riley and Miss Watson. It’s great having so many adults to work with as there is always someone around to help us with our work. Reading is a big part of our class 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 use puppets to help us re-tell the stories. Outside can be lots of fun for us too and it’s 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. We work very hard at our reading, learning and using all our sounds. Once we have learned them we are very good at using them in our writing too. We can already write long and interesting sentences and some of us have started writing stories. 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 lots of shaped. We are all individuals in our class and celebrate our differences. We are building up a sense of who we are, how we belong and what makes us special. Mr Beale says ‘class RK work beautifully together. They listen very carefully to what their teacher says and really look after their classroom. I am very impressed with their phonics skills and there are many skilful artists in the class’.
