Welcome to Wonderland Class!
Welcome to the Wonderland class! We are a mixed pre-school and reception class and cater for children between the ages of 3-5 years-old. In Wonderland class, we fully implement the EYFS framework where learning through play is at the heart of our curriculum and 'Laughter and Learning' is our ethos. Ms Fielder is the class teacher and Mrs Worrall is the class assistant.
Our current topic is 'Dragons, Fairies and Knights'. In this topic we will be focusing on settling into our new year group and learning the school rules and values, how we are all individual and valuable members of our class. In Expressive arts and design we will look at 'Exploring self portraits' in art and talk about our likes and interests to create a self portrait. We will also be exploring materials to make our own peg faires in DT. We will learn about some key local landmarks and castles such as Broadway tower and Warwick castle. We will learn about the Royal Family and king of England and other people who help us in our local community. In Understanding the World we will be exploring the world around us through the units of ‘Light’ and ‘Humans’.
We send home a topic fact sheet about what we are learning, which includes topic tasks, key topic vocabularly, books and questions that we will be focusing on in our topic. You can also see it here too by clicking the links below.
We have PE on Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon.This term we are developing our PE skills in ball games.
We hold a Book and Bisuit on a Wednesday morning at 9.00-9.20am and welcome all parents or carers to come and read a story with us and where you can support your child to choose his/her library book to take home and share.
We will also be running our 'Outdoor Learning' in our forest school every Tuesday afternoon where we will be exploring and observing the world around us.
New class reading books are given once a week in addition to other supporting reading books for the reception children. We encourage these class readers to be read with daily at home to support your child's developing reading skills. Reading books from RWI scheme will also be sent home for the phonic stage of reading for your child.
Home learning activities to support your child's learning will also be sent home in home learning folders and on class dojo for reception children. These activities will help support our child's phonics, literacy and math skills that we are practising in class. Throughout the year we will be holding a Phonics and Reading workshop as well as a Early maths workshop. In these we will discuss how we teach these early skills and how these important skills can be further supported at home.
We will regularly update our Class Dojo page and your child's portfolio on the Dojo app. Your child will receive Dojo points for their efforts at school, such as taking pride in their work, working together as a team, homework and reading tasks completed and being ambitious in their learning. We will also be uploading pictures and observations of your child to your child's portfolio on Class Dojo and encourage you to add comments, photos and videos of activities your child likes to do at home. We love to see them!
Ms Fielder and Mrs Worral.
