Welcome to Gwenver Class
Welcome to year 1 and 2 !
Our topic this term is Splendid Skies. We are exploring how our weather changes each year in Science, and using the colours and textures in each season to inspire our art work. In maths we follow White Rose and will be exploring Place Value and Addition and Subtraction.
In maths we are looking at shape and money as well as daily fluency lessons in addition, multiplication , subtraction and division. We use number lines, 100 squares and part whole models to assist our understanding. We use games and songs to support our knowledge and learning.
This term for English we are following Literacy Leaves. The books that we will focus our English work on are Wolves, Jim and the Beanstalk, The sea-saw and Billy and the Beast.
Phonics is still an important part of our daily routine. We have a phonics session each morning after our literacy lesson.
In Gwenver class we aim to provide all children with a wealth of enjoyable , meaningful learning experiences that will allow each child to flourish and grow.
In Gwenver class we recognise children's interests and create an environment that will foster their love of learning.
Our children are at the heart of everything that we do. Their wellbeing is paramount to their learning.
We are keen to create a love of writing and reading for pleasure.
In our classroom we have a space themed reading corner that the children have access to during the school day: filled with exciting story books.
The children are given the skills to self regulate in our daily mindfulness and meditation sessions.
