Welcome to Elm Class. Our teacher is called Miss Kay. Sometimes other adults help in our class and this helps us get to know all the everyone across school.
Learning in Key Stage One is more formal than when we first came to school. Our class teacher still gives us opportunities to use our continuous provision but the vast majority of our learning is done together in the classroom.
A big focus of our learning is learning to read. We know reading helps us build our confidence and unlock other areas of the curriculum as we move through the primary phase. We focus particularly on decoding words and reading fluency first. Once we are fluent, we begin to focus on comprehension skills. We need lots of practice to help us do this and so we ask that an adult at home listens to us read every single day for 10 minutes. If there are any words you find tricky, you can ask your adult to make a note of them in your Reading Record so that the adults in school can help you further. In school, we read with an adult 3 times a week and our reading books are changed regularly.
Our PE days are Monday and Friday and, on these days, we can come to school in our PE kit. If you are not sure what to wear, visit our uniform pages to find out.
The Rawdon St. Peter’s Curriculum has been written by our teachers. They have made sure our learning experiences are fun, exciting and prepare us for the next steps in our learning. Our Long Term Plans for the curriculum are linked at the beginning of the page but you can find out more about what we are learning this half term, including homework, in the links below.
Our teachers in school are always happy to answer any questions you may have. They come on to the playground five minutes before the bell rings each morning to talk to us and our parents. If there isn’t enough time to talk then, they will arrange to ring home at a mutually convenient time. If its easier, your class teacher can be contacted via the school office or email@example.com.
