Red Class


Spring Term 2022

Wow! What a busy term we have had in Red Class. Our topic this time was called What's the Story? where we have learnt all about different traditional tales. From The Gingerbread Man to Goldilocks, The Three Little Pigs to an alternative retelling of The Princess and the Pea set in Africa, the children have really enjoyed getting to know and remember these tales. 


We have also been lucky enough to receive some tennis coaching this term which the children have excelled in. They have listened carefully to our coach Sarah, and really practised their tennis skills. The children were always keen to show her their 'ready position', rainbow throwing and super catching! 


Some other highlights from the term include: open afternoons for parents; remarkable reading; a visit from the stitch story; our governor Dave coming in during British Science Week to help us make flying rockets; celebrating World Book Day; and having a visit from Kingsley's mum to tell us all about Chinese New Year. How time flies when you're having so much fun!


Autumn Term 2021

During this Autumn term, the children have settled into school life at Northway Infants. Our topic has been Marvellous Me where we have painted self portraits, discussed our emotions and feelings and spoken about our families. We have enjoyed discovering all the fun activities we can do at school from early morning workouts to exploring the outside classroom. We have followed the school and classroom rules to keep SAFE.  Look at the photos to see how HAPPY we are at school!  We have become more INDEPENDENT by sorting ourselves out in a morning, putting our own welly boots on and changing for PE.  We have practised and practised writing our names...NEVER GIVING UP and our teachers are very proud of how we have EXCELLED at this.  We definitely SHINE like the stars on our jumpers!

In maths we explored many different things. We have learnt and used language such as more and fewer where we looked at piles of objects and had to decide which had more. We sorted objected into groups, looked at taller and shorter, and spoke about the capacity of a container. More recently we looked at patterns all around us and created repeating patterns using objects or colours.

Read Write Inc.

Our focus so far has been on Set 1 sounds, learning the sounds the letter makes, associating it to an object, learning to correctly form the letter and begin to build words. We've also started to blend using the sounds we know! We have been enjoying doing lots of activities related to each sound.
