Class 1 2020 - 2021
Class 1 is our reception class here at St Paul's.
The teacher in Class 1 is Mrs Owen and the Teaching assistant is Mrs Edwards.
In September our doors open at 8.55am and the school day ends at 3.15pm.
Our classroom and outdoor area is organised into different areas of continuous provision and children are free to explore all areas to support their learning.
We provide learning challenges and stimulating activities in each area to engage children's imaginations, follow their interests, and support their independent learning towards meeting the Early Learning Goals at the end of reception.
Adults will play alongside children in all areas of the classroom and outdoor area to observe and promote their learning, offering challenge, praise and support.
Children will also take part in small group work led by an adult.
Assessments are made regularly throughout the year as we track children's progress through the EYFS curriculum.
Useful class info and Reminders
Children will need to bring their own water bottle to school, clearly labelled with their name. They also need to bring their reading folder every day.
All clothing needs to have names clearly visible and it is always a good idea to make children aware of what their name label looks like, so they can easily identify their own belongings.
Fruit is provided for snack times but children may bring their own fruit if they prefer.
Milk is free for children under 5. It is available to purchase for children over 5 by logging in here: https://www.coolmilk.com
Please do not send any hand sanitser, lip balms, toys or trinkets into school. We are aiming to keep items brought from home to a minimum.
If your child is bringing their own lunch, lunch boxes need to be removed from any other bag and placed in the classroom.
If your child is on school dinners please ensure they are preordered via the Dolce website. This is due to all food being made to order on the day, it is essential for the kitchen staff to know exactly what to prepare.
PE kits need to be in school - yellow t-shirt, black shorts and a pair of pumps/trainers.
PE this half term is on Thursdays.
We will notify you when we need your child to bring their wellies - we often go on welly walks in our school grounds and it can get a bit muddy!
