This Year, Seahorse Class is a fantastic bunch of happy, friendly and eager Year 1s. We are feeling very grown-up now!
We are very proud of our work in Seahorse Class and enjoy showing off the clever things we can do. We love to have fun with our friends and work together. The classroom is always busy; whether we are drawing, exploring, painting, reading, singing, role-playing, modelling, writing, investigating, counting, problem solving or using the computers. Lots of our learning is through play and exploration (especially in the afternoons). We are encouraged to be as independent as possible, from sorting out our own book bags, snacks etc in the mornings to selecting resources to support our own learning. The displays in our Classroom help us to learn, including our Working Walls, which we use during Maths and English. The Working Walls remind us what we are learning today, our long term aim and have lots of examples and vocabulary that we can use in our own work.
The adults in Seahorse Class work with us in small groups and help us to achieve our 'next steps'. We discuss and reflect on our learning every day and are encouraged to peer-assess and self-assess our work regularly.
The displays of our work are changed regularly and parents are always welcome to come and have a look at what we have been doing. There are two parents' evenings during the year which give parents opportunities to discuss our progress. In our cloakroom there is a 'WOW Board' where we celebrate our achievements and display work to show you some of the fun things we have been doing at school. Each week, we give a certificate to someone who has been working really hard in our 'Show and Share' assembly on Friday.
On Fridays, we are given one piece of Maths homework (in our green homework files) to support our learning at school that week. Please complete this and return the file to the homework tray as soon as it is completed so that we can mark it.
It is important that we read at home regularly too! If we read 5 times during a week we get a golden ticket. At the end of each term a golden ticket is picked at random to decide who will win a book token.
During the Autumn Term we will be exploring 'Dinosaurs’ linked to our topic Adventurers and Explorers.
