First of all, we hope that you all had a wonderful Summer holidays and myself and Miss Barber are very excited to meet your lovely children and assist them in taking their first steps on their personal learning journey here at Gwinear.
Each term, we shall describe briefly the key learning intentions that we will be working towards as a class and some of the main themes, texts and topics that we will be covering. As you would imagine, this term is all about settling into school life and developing skills to help us become lifelong learners.
Our Teacher, Miss Rowe, and teacher assistant, Mrs Barber, have worked together to create an engaging learning environment which will, of course, be developed further by the children through our topic ‘All About Me.’ We can’t wait to share our learning with you in the near future.
If you wish to find any more information on our current topics and curriculum, please look at our topic web and class timetable.
We are very lucky to have such a fantastic outdoor area, which we use daily. As well as a school mini-bus to allow us to engage in outdoor learning every week. This enables us to immerse ourselves in the class theme and learning in a variety of areas in Cornwall, including woodlands and beaches.
Within class we follow the ‘Letter and Sounds’ phonics scheme, allowing all children to access and practise their sounds and become confident and competent readers. If you wish to find any more information on our current topics and curriculum please look at our topic web and class timetable.
